A DEMONSTRATION of traditional baking in the historic Mansion House will help cooks prepare for Easter.

Meryl White will be serving up some tasty treats using recipes handed down from her grandmother, a cook-housekeeper in an Edwardian household in Wath upon Dearne.

Former deputy head teacher and education officer Meryl, 61, of Sprotbrough, has compiled a book of grandma Lizzie Abson’s recipes to cater for the explosion of interest in home baking and to preserve the traditional skills.

Grandma Abson’s baking was renowned and Meryl’s own love of baking was nutured as she watched her grandma busying about the family kitchen.

Grandma Abson’s Easter bake in aid of the Aurora Centre is at 11.30am on April 3. Tickets, price £10.95, which includes tea and cakes, are available from 01302 734032 or by contacting paul.marelli@doncaster.gov.uk
