Our Ingredients July 16 2013, 1 Comment
We choose our ingredients thoughtfully. Megpies is a huge supporter of local farmers and organic, responsibly sourced products. We believe that the finest ingredients make the finest muffins, cookies and cupcakes.
To give our cupcakes, muffins and cookies the perfect crumb we use Doves Farm organic flour. Doves Farm is family owned, based in Berkshire and dedicated to producing high quality, organic products. We use both traditional wheat flour and a gluten-free blend of rice, potato, tapioca, maize and buckwheat.
We use less sugar in our treats than most. Our sweetness come from Tate & Lyle who are fully committed to ethically sourcing the finest sugars and reducing the impact their business has on the environment.
When substituting sugar, our baked goods are sweetened with agave, xylitol, coconut palm sugar or maple syrup.
Nielsen-Massey have been crafting vanilla products for over a century, examining all of their vanilla bean by bean to ensure each bean meets their high standards. That is good enough for us.
Megpies' flavours come from fresh local farmers' fruit, the finest chocolate, rich and aromatic espresso, fresh organic citrus, sweet and salty caramels, ethically sourced exotic fruit and special finds from Megs' travels.
