What supermarket sells London Cheesecake?

18
Posted 11th Apr 2019
We did some cat-sitting for one of my boyfriend's colleagues a couple of weeks ago and in his colleague's town there was only a Co-op where we could shop; when we went to do some shopping my boyfriend picked up a pack of Peacock Foods London Cheesecakes in there and didn't expect to find them so nice.

We do have a Co-op here too but it's a bit out of the way. I did a quick search and they should be in Aldi too? Anyone knows for sure? Aldi is a little closer at least.

Or does anyone know if I can source them online? Greggs does them but they don't have jam in them so they aren't as good. Thanks in advance

Do you mean a custard slice with name in? They are usually called Bavarian slices, the pound bakery or Sayers sell them.
Ooh I love a London cheesecake. Must admit never seen them in supermarkets.
While on the subject of cakes and pastries, does anyone know if any supermarkets still sell Manchester Tarts? Used to get them in Safeway but haven't seen them anywhere for years.

No, it's got coconut and jam and it's a pastry. I am Italian so not an expert in your cakes but I assume it's a London thing (my boyfriend was born and brought up in London but we live in Essex Now).


Thanks for the replies. I might look in the local Co-op then since I know for sure they sell them.

That's the default merchant for the all the non-students' on this forum to benefit from thier 10% Coop NUS discount.
I’m a Londoner and didn’t know what a London cheesecake was until I saw your photo. Just know them as a pastry cheesecake.
Aldi always have them but they’re not great. Greggs sell them - a bit pricey but very tasty. They do a version filled with fresh cream too.

I know you said supermarket but I'm sure Greggs sell them, or at least used to. Very underrated.


Damn... I can't resist... Off to Greggs I go.

Yes Greenhalghs the bakery sell them and also available in bigger Sainsbury’s
Thanks for all the replies.

I do work in one of the biggest, if not the biggest, Sainsbury's in the UK and they don't sell them.

I might try making my own as I don't think they are too complicated but I just wanted to get the ones I know for sure he likes. He's quite fussy with food.

wow, that looks really delicious. i grew up in london but i have never seen that cake before. i wondered why it was called a cheesecake as those white stuff on the top didn't look like cheese. are you sure it is called a cheese cake?
and that it has the name london in it?

i will pop into the co-op when i am next in london to see if i can get one.

Absolutely sure. I have had it as well and seen it in Greggs (but no jam) and we bought it in the Co-op like I said in my OP. This one is the one I am after.

No one really knows why they're called cheesecakes, but they are surely a London thing. My boyfriend is from the East End, so maybe that's where they are popular?

i am from the east end but i have never heard of a london cheesecake. but then again i don't pay attention to what cakes are called. i will have a look at the co-op and see if i can get one as i am intrigued to how it tastes but it looks really nice. there's a big co-op where my dad lives, so i am hoping they will have it in store.
