The past few months I’ve missed snacking at work- to get back in the snacking game I decided it was time to indulge in some delicious treats that I just have to share with you all!
Starting off with the most mouth-watering cinnamon buns I’ve ever tasted by Sweet Doris. I first encountered the buns at ‘Summer in the Square’ located in Portman Square Garden, a week-long food market that was in correspondent with Wimbledon. There were so many tasty treats to try but what caught my eye was her cinnamon kebab, since then I’ve kept going back for more!
Sweet Doris is a cinnamon bun company and all the buns are freshly baked daily. All ingredients are organic and free range, creating the richest flavours and they are made-to order and delivered right to your door.
Natasha Williams founded Sweet Doris in 2018 and was inspired by her Grandma, Doris who past away in 2015. Natasha thought it would be fitting to start a home baked company to honour her Grandma, as she would always bake freshly bread rolls and cakes for as long as Natasha and her family could remember. She taught Natasha how to bake at the young age of 4. Natasha wanted to bring something different to the market by giving it a twist using different fillings and toppings.
Sweet Doris have 13 flavours altogether and 9 vegan flavours, all ranging from £3.00 to £3.50 each.
Natasha’s favourite buns are the mini cinnamon bun kebabs and caramel popcorn.
We ordered 4 different vegan flavours:
- The Mini Cinnamon bun Kebabs
- The Apple Cinnamon bun
- Caramel Popcorn bun
- Lotus Biscoff bun
They were all as delicious as the next, I must admit I’ve tasted her originals and I wouldn’t know the difference! Our favourite one from the 4 were the mini cinnamon kebabs, delish! The Lotus Biscoff was amazing too and very sweet in flavour, I’m salivating just thinking about it!
The Mini Cinnamon bun kebab – a light and fluffy bun with a gorgeous cinnamon middle, baked to perfection!
The Apple Cinnamon bun – the bun was moist, the flavour was moreish and there was a slight hint of tartness coming from the Apple cubes, the two flavours complimented each other well.
Caramel popcorn – rich in flavour, a luscious cinnamon bun with caramel intertwined, finishing it off with a vanilla glaze and popcorn topping, yum!
Lotus Bischoff – deliciously sweet, taste just like Bischoff itself, with a caramelised centre each bite was better than the last!
For dietary requirements message Natasha directly- she is so helpful and considerate and that it made it easy to order.

My second treat I’d like to share is Crosstown. I first discovered them through Claire she was constantly going on about them, the doughnuts are indescribably good – so many varieties to choose from! People at work were bringing them in and it started to become a tradition, whoever’s birthday it was they’d be getting doughnuts rather than a cake – which I preferred.
Crosstown is a scratch bakery, known for the world’s first yeast-raised sourdough base. They make all jams, compotes, fillings, glazes and toppings in-house, fresh every day. JP Then and Adam Wills are Co-Founders of the doughnut company. The pair first launched Crosstown in 2014 as a market stall on Leather Lane in London. The imaginative doughnuts were inspired by JP’s interest in speciality coffee and the Antipodean coffee culture. Crosstown has 20 locations across London, as well as events & catering segments and premium wholesale accounts such as Wholefoods and Harrods.
My favourite doughnut is their Matcha flavour – I just love everything Matcha! They have 13 flavours in total and 7 of them are vegan.
We ordered their vegan work from home treats through their website.
Coconut & Lime – soft bun with a refreshing flavour.
Yuzu & Pasionfruit – is definitely my favourite vegan doughnut, a citrusy flavour that bursts in your mouth.
Rhubarb & Ginger – is true to the name however personally it’s not my favourite flavour a tart rhubarb with ginger seeping through every bite.
Dark Chocolate Truffle – a rich dark chocolate that engulfs your senses leaving you feeling desired.
Tongan Vanilla Bean Glaze – love this flavour each bite was as good as its last.
Cinnamon Scroll – yum, you can’t beat a classic flavour!

Lastly I’d like the share with you all, our last tasty treat Bad Brownie – a gourmet chocolate brownie company. Founded by Paz and Morag in 2013, a pair of chocoholics! They first sold their brownies in a South London market- the people of Clapham loved it and since then they have been developing and creating more incredible flavours. In 2015 they were asked to appear on Dragon’s Den, where they pitched their idea to all the Dragon’s. Touker Suleyman was blown away by their fantastic idea that he wanted to take them under his wing and help grow their company, the show aired in January 2016.
I found their treats through Instagram and wanted to try them – the best decision I made! They have 13 flavours altogether and 6 of them are vegan & gluten free.
We bought the Vegan & No Gluten 12 Bite Brownie Box. I must be honest we’ve never tasted brownies like these before, they literally melted in our mouths! There were 3 different flavours neatly placed in the box, raspberry, salted caramel and cookie dough.
Raspberry – dark chocolate has never been a favourite of mine but having had some of this it has changed my mind – dark, rich and chocolatey ganache with small bits of freeze-dried raspberries sprinkled on top, heaven!
Salted Caramel – is definitely my favourite, an indulgent and rich flavour with hints of salted caramel, with gooey layered chocolate and a caramel filling – a moreish flavour that you can’t forget!
Cookie Dough – a smooth layer of cookie dough on top with the rich chocolatey ganache at the bottom, not our favourite but if you love cookie dough, we’d highly recommend!

I hope you enjoyed reading my favourite working from home sweet treats, as much as I loved enjoying them with my tea!
