You can now choose between a large loaf (approx. 1 kg) and a small one (approx. 500g) 

This wonderful dark rye loaf is baked in a tin, making it easier to be sliced.

It smells like the Alps in Austria: earthy, wholesome and both bitter and sweet at the same time. It makes you think of hiking in the sunshine just to stop for a beer and a slice of rye bread with butter on top... Heavenly!

We love it with butter and black currant jam or marmalade, but try it also with cheese or salami, or cream cheese, chives and smoked salmon as an appetiser ;)

The loaf is packed with wonderful sunflower seeds and coated in rye flakes, it's left to self-ferment for at least 15 hours so it gets all the flavours of the organic and wholemeal rye flour, the seeds and the treacle. Plus point of this bread? It's very moist, making it last soft for longer (in an ideal environment, not too hot or humid, it can last up to 6 days!).

Impossible not to fall in love.

Please note that your loaf will always be made with the same amount of flour per loaf, but we have to adapt the amount of water to the humidity in the air: that plus baking-caused evaporation may result in fluctuations in your loaf's weight.

Please note that as we slice the bread by hand, we won’t be able to slice the Rye as it’s always still hot when ready for delivery: this bread is still very delicate and wet until completely cooled, and we’d end up destroying it and wasting a lot of it (it sticks to the knife).


Water, wholemeal organic rye flour, organic untreated white flour, sunflower seeds, black treacle, rye flakes, sea salt.


Wheat, rye (gluten), naturally occurring sulphites (treacle syrup).

Please note: all our products are made in a kitchen that handles nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, pistachios, almonds), peanuts, sesame, wheat (gluten), dairy products, eggs, may also contain traces of soy.

If you'd like to place a big order we may need a preorder of minimum 2-3 days: we are a small bakery catering to households, we may not have the space to accommodate your request for next-day delivery.
Please plan ahead and call us in advance or we may have to cancel/delay your delivery.

We deliver our entire menu to selected postcodes in a (circa) 2 mile radius from Wandsworth Town.

As of now, it is impossible for us to send our bread via the post, so sourdough, sweet sourdough, viennoiserie and bread subscriptions are available only in those postcodes.

If by mistake your postcode is not in our delivery area and you add one of the restricted products, the cart will give an error message: you will need to remove the sourdough-based products to proceed with the order.

Sorry for the inconvenience: contact us if you need any additional info.

Deborah, co-owner of Buzzing Bee, is an experienced Baker who has almost 15 years of experience in the industry.

Check out her baking story:

After a year of studies in bakery and pastry school, she worked for 6 years as an apprentice in bakeries around North Eastern Italy, and she run the whole production of a patisserie/coffee shop before moving to England, the country she fell in love with while on a 2013 trip for a Cake Design course at Squires Kitchen School in Farnham, Surrey, in 2014.

After a Cake Design course at Le Cordon Bleu, London, she found a job in North London in a production bakery, to then leave for her first restaurant job. From there she worked in restaurants such as Roka, Aviary at the Royal London House, and The Wolseley (where she was promoted to Junior Sous Chef in under a year).

With all this experience on her shoulders, she launched Buzzing Bee with Marco in June 2019, and now is the bakery wizard in the kitchen, creating and testing the recipes, and being constantly focused on making the best product you could ever have.
