Mentioned in a nursery rhyme and baked by the same family for over a hundred years, the Banbury Cake is as famously linked with the town as the Cross or the lady on the white horse. But did you know that the recipe used by the Brown Family originates back to the 13th Century and is still a closely guarded secret?

On a recent trip to Banbury Museum, our radio car reporter Mark Watson caught up with current Banbury Cake baker Philip Brown as he was delivering a load to the museums café to find out more about this puff pastry spicy fruit filled treat. But as you'll hear in the audio link above, this wasn't the first time a member of the Brown family had been interviewed by the BBC!
