Exclusive: Lisa Faulkner West End recipe

First Published 20 May 2015, Last Updated 26 May 2015

To celebrate the first ever West End Bake Off, actor and MasterChef winning cook Lisa Faulkner has created an amazing Matilda The Musical-inspired recipe card perfect for theatre fans with a sweet tooth.

Here at Official London Theatre our love of all things stagey is only rivalled by a love of all things sugary. Whether it’s a fresh cream Victoria sponge or a delectable macaroon, a buttery flapjack or crumbly biscuit, it’s safe to say we’ll love it. That’s why we are so excited to be supporting the first ever West End Bake Off, in which a host of top West End shows will head to St Anne’s Courtyard this Saturday 23 May to find out which show judges Christopher Biggins and Barbara Windsor will crown the best bakers in town and raise money for Acting For Others.

To celebrate, our favourite multi-talented actor and chef, Celebrity MasterChef winner Lisa Faulkner, has taken inspiration from Olivier Award-winning hit Matilda The Musical to give one of her scrumptilicious recipe from her newest book Tea & Cake with Lisa Faulker a West End twist.

You can view the recipe card below and download it as a PDF by clicking on it. We’d love to see what culinary masterpieces West End Bake Off inspires you to create; tweet us your photos to @O_L_T

West End Bake Off takes place on Saturday 23 May from 11:00-13:00. You can find full details here.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
