About Us


Hello and welcome to Hawthorn Bakehouse!

My name is Alison Gorman and I’m a baker and cook. Having trained at Ballymaloe Cookery School and spent several years baking and cooking professionally in Dublin I launched Hawthorn Bakehouse in 2020 after returning to my native Sligo.

I make small batches of delicious, award winning brownies, package them up and send them by post to you anywhere in Ireland. They make the perfect treat for yourself, or whoever you want to gift with a little something sweet and delicious to make their day. I was thrilled to be awarded a gold medal for our Classic Chocolate and Walnut Brownies at the 2021 Blas na hÉireann Taste of Ireland awards. You can order them here

I also bake cakes for all of your celebrations; weddings, birthdays, baby showers, anniversaries, thank yous', and any other occasion where a cake is welcome! You can find out more and send a cake request here

We always use gorgeous Belgian chocolate, free range eggs from a local farm, and real Irish butter.  

If you'd like to chat to us about bespoke orders, larger orders, local collection or anything else we can help with you can contact us here
