Along with the variety of Baked Foods we offer, it nearly goes without saying, that we also offer a selection of Cold Drinks.
As well as Soft drinks and Energy Drinks, we also have a selection of Dairy Farmers Milk Drinks, Fruit Drinks and Juices.
If we don’t have your preferred brand or flavour, perhaps the neighboring “Friendly Grocer” will.
Perhaps you want a Pie or Sausage Roll, but someone else wants a Burger, or Fish and Chips. That’s OK, “Uncle Bill’s Takeaway” is close by as well.
Some people refer to these as “Smokies”, “Smokey’s”, or “Smoky’s”.
So anyhow what we call a “Puff Dog” is a 8 inch Vienna (hotdog) Sausage with Shredded Ham and “Aussie Jack” Cheese wrapped around, encased by our Bakery rolled Puff Pastry.
We don’t add any sauce or sauces to these before baking, however your welcome to select complementary sauce at time of purchase.
Normally pronounced “Par-stee”, and sometimes spelt Pasty.
We offer 2 different Style of Pastie.
Our main one is made in a Cornish style, however we need to mention it is not quite a true Cornish Pastie.
The filling is a mixture of sausage meat, and vegetable’s (including swede) encased in our Puff Pastry.
Our other Pastie is a complete vegetarian style.
We are confident in saying the vegetarian bit as our Puff Pastry is made without animal fats.
Always a great aroma to have wafting around the home kitchen, freshly baked scones. Even better if someone else bakes them.
Quite a treat with a bit of a “ding” in the microwave (to warm them up, to melt the butter). A slather of Fresh Cream, and Jam. Its all “Yummo” from there.
We use the same style of recipe that would be considered a “Family Traditional”, just the basic ingredients and freshly bake.
Plain, Pumpkin (flavoured), Date, Sultana, Herb and Cheese, Bacon and Cheese are some of the variety’s we offer.
Sometimes this Bun may be referred to as an Elephants foot.
Call it which ever, and there is a good chance we know what you are talking about.
This Bun is made to share with a group.
Its made using our Fruit Bun Dough that has a mixture of Spices and Sultana’s (Australian 3 crown) through the dough.
We put a filling of diced and blanched New Zealand Apple in before we bake the Bun.
After baking , we coat it with our Sugar Glaze and finish it off with our Whipped Sugar Icing. Sometimes we will dust the icing with Coconut.
Made using our Sweet Bun Dough, baked with either a filling of Blue Berry Conserve, or Caramel Paste & Californian Walnuts.
After baking a coating of Sugar Glaze, and finished off with a drizzle of white sugar Fondant.
Just like our Iced Fruit Loaf (around the same size) it is ideal for sharing at morning or afternoon Tea with friends or family or even as a desert.
Although this particular Bun is best described as a Braid it correctly termed a “Faux Braid”. When being made it is rolled, and cut in such a way making it easy to “Pullapart”.
There seems to be a bit of controversy about what this is called.
I myself grew up calling it a “Tea Bun” and to be honest a lot of our customers call it that as well.
It possibly earned this title because, when we were having guests over for “Morning Tea” or just as a treat for “Smoko” there was almost always one of these in the table setting. It would then be sliced (free hand) to various widths and receive a copious slathering with “real” butter.
After a bit of searching the internet the closest I could find to describing what we make here is an “English Fruit Loaf”.
So what am I talking about.
This is a loaf made from our bun dough with a mixture of Spices and Sultana’s (Australian 3 crown) through the dough.
Rolled into a oval loaf around about 30cm long.
After Baking it is glazed with a Sugar glaze.
Its may then be finished with Cinnamon Sugar, Whipped Sugar Icing, or the Sugar Icing dipped into a mixture of shredded Coconut and Cake Sprinkles.
So when you buy your loaf of “Fresh” Bread or Bread Rolls, do you ever ask yourself the question.
“Where was this loaf last night?”
Here’s some possible answers:
Was it already on the shelf in the store (for who knows how long).
In a Truck maybe coming from a warehouse or distribution centre.
Maybe thawing before being baked.
So then you start wonder “How Fresh is it really?”
Or “Well it must be fresh otherwise a preservative would need to be added to keep it “Fresh”, How do they do get it to last if they claim its preservative free”
If you care enough, you can find those answers online how this can be done without adding to the dough.
There is an alternative to ensure the Bread you get is freshly made.
By time most people in our Town are in bed, our Bread, Bread Rolls and Buns are still just flour in a bag.
This means the loaf of Bread, Bread Rolls, or Buns you buy in the morning are less than 24 hours old.
So next time you buy a Bread Product ask yourself “How Fresh is this Bread, and how much longer will it still be palatable.
What Flour do we use?
The Flour we use is unbleached and made from Australian grain.
Our Flour comes from an Australian and Family owned flour mill. http://benfurney.com/
Sounds a mouth full because it is.
We cut the top open of our regular sausage roll, and pipe Freshly Mashed Potato down the centre. Then we top it off with Shredded Ham and melted “Aussie Jack” Cheese.
Of course, if you think you can fit them in. You can always get “Mushy Peas” added at no extra cost. Also you are welcome to have some complimentary Tomato or Barbecue sauce.
In case your wondering we do offer this as a 1/2 size as well.
Our Sausage Rolls are made using Puff Pastry rolled in our bakery.
We use meat from our local butcher.
The answer to the question we are often asked about our filling we use. There is “No Onion”.
Because we make our own sausage rolls we offer a variety of sizes.
Our Standard size is around 160mm.
If you just want one as a side snack, we normally have half size on offer (baked at 1/2 size so you have the crunchy bit on each end).
Of course don’t be shy to ask if you want your sausage roll to have our complementary “Mushy Peas”.
If you need them to be bite size for a function platter (1/4), that’s do-able.
