The Brownie Story

The Brownie Post is a very special part of 'And The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon', an established bakery and tea-room on Burton Road in leafy West Didsbury, Manchester.


We've been hand-making all manner of cakes and bakes for over two years now from our (posh 5-star food hygiene rated!) commercial kitchen tucked away at the back of our tea-room…


Our brownies are made fresh-to-order in our lovely Manchester bakery using very nice ingredients indeed. We use organic flour, free-range eggs direct from a local farm, Belgian chocolate and fair-trade sugars.



Baked by hand using only the best ingredients, our brownies have been flying out of our bakery and café faster than we can bake them. They have even featured in Selfridges, and foodie-bible's, Delicious Magazine and Olive Magazine.

So for those of you unlucky enough not to live in the great city of Manchester (!), we decided to launch The Brownie Post so we can deliver our famously good brownies direct to brownie lovers nationwide!


Ordering is easy. Just take a look at our shop page, choose a box of brownies (or lots of boxes!) from our huge range of delicious flavours, pick your dispatch day, add a message and then pay using your credit or debit card. Simple!



Our brownies are lovingly packaged up in cellophane, white paper and ribbon, then carefully placed in a very nice little box that looks fantastic and even fits through most letterboxes.

If you're sending the brownies as a gift, not only do they look great, you can also add a short personalized message to the lucky recipient! And if they're just for you, why not write yourself a wee message saying how brilliant you are!


We send your brownies via first class post as standard (included in the price of a box). Order before 3pm Sunday to Friday and we'll dispatch the next day (subject to availability) and they'll be with within one to two working days later. Order on Saturday and we'll dispatch on the Monday.

If you're dying for them right now, for a little extra you can have them guaranteed for the next day after the dispatch date (we use Royal Mail Special Delivery for this). Please note if you pick a Saturday dispatch day and Special Delivery they will arrive on the Monday 

CHRISTMAS POSTING DATES 2014: 19th December is last dispatch date for First Class Delivery. 22nd December is last dispatch date for Special Delivery


Once you (or you lucky friend) receive your box of brownies you can eat them straight away! They are great on their own, out of the box or for an extra gooey treat, slightly warmed in a microwave. Our customers love them served in all kinds of ways, but we're particular fans of a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream, a dollop of clotted cream, or even whizzed up into a deluxe milkshake!

Final Product

The brownies can be stored in an air-tight container and eat within 5 days.

Good luck lasting 5 days!
