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.
Not to be confused with a “Napolean” or Napoleon”.
With this Sponge Cake we use a combination of “Pink, Brown, and Cream” colour’s, or another way of describing it “Strawberry, Chocolate, and Vanilla” flavour’s.
Placed into layers with our whipped Mock Cream between.
A layer of our whipped Sugar Icing on top and normally packaged as a “Bar Cake”.
This one always causes confusion. If you do some research you will find a whole host of definitions.
Apparently this cake may not of had French origins as you may perceive. I had a quick look around on the internet myself, and found that the one we call a “French Vanilla Slice” is sometimes referred to as a “Russian Napolean” or a “Napoleon”.
Also not to be confused with a “Neapolitan” Cake (refer to our other post) .
So what do we call a “Napolean Cake”.
We sandwich a Light Vanilla Sponge Cake between a top and bottom layer of our Puff Pastry.
To hold this together we use a coating of Raspberry/Plum Jam, and a layer of our whipped Mock Cream.
On top we Ice the cake with our whipped Sugar Icing.
This is then packaged as a bar cake.
Some times referred to as a “Coffee Roll”. This is a oven baked Bun. (as opposed to a Dough Nut).
We finish these off in a few different ways.
After we spray Sugar Glaze on them, we roll some in Cinnamon Sugar.
Others, we slather on our Whipped Sugar Icing, and we leave some plain iced. Some are rolled in coconut, and some of the iced ones are cut down the centre and filled with our Whipped Mock Cream (sometimes known as a “Long john”)
A Traditional Favourite, a layer of our butter style Shortbread pastry on the top and bottom with a filling of New Zealand diced and blanched Apples.
Finished off with a dusting Castor Sugar.
If you would rather it as a Pie, we have them sized for the individual, or a Family size.
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 as a large Bun to share with others (looks like a big doughnut).
This bun is made using what we refer to as our clear Bun Dough (no fruit or spices). It then has a bead of Caramel Paste placed into its centre before baking.
After baking, we coat it with our Sugar Glaze and finish it off with our Whipped Sugar Icing. Sometimes we may then sprinkle crushed Peanuts on top, or dust the Icing with Coconut.
Made with our Fruit Bun Dough that has a mixture of Spices and Sultana’s (Australian 3 crown) through the dough.
The dough has a layer of Raspberry/Plum Jam applied before being rolled into a scroll.
After baking they are sprayed with Sugar Glaze and either finished off with Cinnamon Sugar or Whipped Sugar Icing.
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.
