At our Craft Bakery in Harrogate we make around 10,000 of our iconic Yorkshire Fat Rascals every week – that’s more than two million since we launched them in 1983. Whether enjoyed with a cup of tea at our Café Tea Rooms or delivered freshly baked to your door, Fat Rascals are one of our most popular treats.
For many of you, a visit to Bettys wouldn’t be complete without a steaming pot of our famous Tea Room Blend tea arriving at your table. But what’s behind that unassuming name? Let’s take a peek under the teapot lid…
In one sense, there are no mysteries to how we make our macaroons. Our craft bakers create them from the same three ingredients used in medieval times: ground almonds, sugar and egg whites. The real secret comes with adding the fourth ingredient. Despite being invisible, it’s the most vital one of all.
It was a bright blue day and the sun shone from an aquamarine sky as we travelled across the roaring roads, through the old silent churchyard, beside the bending, bubbling river and across the wobbly bridge to get to the edge of the deep woods.
The secret’s out: men love Bettys too! From the man-sized Fat Rascals to the appetite-conquering breakfasts, though Bettys was named after a lady it’s made for gentlemen. Discover tasty ways to show your love and appreciation for dad this Father’s Day with our gift guide.
Join us from 23rd to 25th June at the RHS Harlow Carr Flower Show where we’ll keep you refreshed at two Bettys pop-ups, which will spring up like fresh flowers within the grounds of the gardens.
