Award-winning baker Elizabeth Draper founded ElizabethDbakes in 2015. Based in SE London, the company creates and bakes in a dedicated gluten-free space.
Originally from the American South, Elizabeth has lived in London for thirty years. She had a successful career in the film business before she devoted herself to her passion for baking full-time.
She learned to bake from her mother and grandmother who taught her how to make traditional Bundt cakes, all-butter cookies, sweet fruit breads and the great American deep-dish pie. She lived in France in her twenties and added Parisian style to her kitchen; in London her classic all-American recipes continued to develop with the influence of other cultures until they formed a rich, wonderful range of cakes and baked goods, made using only natural ingredients.
Because everyone she met wanted to try her cakes, Elizabeth started to explore vegan and gluten-free baking. She found that experimenting beyond the boundaries of traditional baking brought out the best in her. ElizabethDbakes focuses on “Free from…” and innovating in this area.
