Hello and Welcome to Traditional Home Baking
About Lynn Hill
My name is Lynn Hill. I’m an Author, food writer, member of the guild of food writers, and a self taught home baker. I founded the Clandestine Cake Club in 2010 – 2018 and the National Cake Week in 2011. National Cake Week has since been taken over by NudgePR in 2018.
In May 2020 I rebranded this website from ClandestineCakeClub.co.uk to TraditionalHomeBaking.com to enable me to share my easy recipes to everyone who loves to bake.
I think there’s nothing nicer than the smell of fresh home baking which is why I love nothing more than to bake for my family. While I love to create easy to make recipes which are ideal for the home baker I will often review cook books that I’ve used and love. Indulging in afternoon tea is my favourite pastime.
I’ve published two cook books.
- The Clandestine Cake Club Cook Book – published Feb 2013
- A Year of Cake – published Sept 2015
During the cakes I and the Clandestine Cake Club received extensive coverage on international, national and local TV and radio, print and online publications, including:
BBC1’s The One Show, ITV’s Lorraine Show and The Alan Titchmarsh Show, BBC Radio Woman’s Hour and on BBC Radio 4, as well as in The Times, Daily Mail and The Washington Post. A full coverage can be found here
How it all began 2010 – 2018
In 2010 I founded the Clandestine Cake Club. While running the Clandestine Cake Club I was also running The Secret Tea Room (2010 – 2012) in my own home. Total strangers would book a place at my dining room table in my home to enjoy an afternoon tea of home baking. Many of those strangers eventually became friends. It was during this time that I founded the Clandestine Cake Club.
While the offline community has spread its wings into independent groups, I’m now concentrating all my skills and energy into creating wonderful recipes for home bakers. My online Facebook community of home bakers continues to grow to bring people together through their love of baking.
