So a great day was had on the 12th of May, 2018 outside Ipswich City Division 5 Councilor Wayne Wendt’s Office. He had arranged a Mobile Nursery Event to be held in Jacaranda Centre’s shared car park. Facebook Photo’s
This is in conjunction with and part of the Ipswich City Council Free Plant Program
Yes that’s right. If you are looking for a Bakery that is open Sunday’s (or Saturday for that matter) in Ipswich, Queensland (QLD).
Our trading hours are 7am to 1.30pm both Saturday and Sunday.
The only Sunday’s we are closed are Easter Sunday and the Sundays directly after Christmas Day and up to when school resumes in the new year. or if a Public holiday happens to fall on a Sunday.
Along with the variety of Baked Foods we offer, we also offer a selection of Cold Drinks.
Choose from a selection of Coca Cola branded Soft drinks and Energy Drinks, Fruit Drinks (Golden Circle) and Juices (Just Juice).
We no longer offer a selection of Dairy Farmers Milk Drinks.
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.
Have you tried our “Four for Four Dollars and Forty cents” cream bun deal.
That’s right “4 for $4.40”.
Normally made with our Whipped Mock Cream, however if you prefer to have our Freshly Whipped Fresh Cream. Just ask, and one of the staff will cream some buns for you while you wait.
These buns are made using our own Fruitless & Un-spiced Bun Dough.
This is a Daily Special we offer.
Please remember stocks are limited and the buns are sold in groups of 4 and will not be sold separately.
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”)
Our Dough nuts are made fresh daily. Just like our Bread and our other Buns.
Yes, we know there is no point in hiding it, but to cook a dough nut it needs to be deep fried (not oven baked). Like in most of our product we use Vegetable Oil where ever we can.
If you are looking for the oven baked sweet roll with icing we call them either “Finger Bun” or “Coffee Roll”.
So what types of Doughnut do we normally have?
Of course there is the Long Cream and Jam. Rolled firstly in Cinnamon Sugar, with either our Whipped Mock Cream or Whipped Fresh Cream and a bead of Raspberry/Plum Jam.
Jam Doughnut- of course if we were in America this would be the “Jelly Doughnut”, but we are not! So we won’t! This is rolled in Cinnamon Sugar before the Jam is piped in.
If its just a Cinnamon Doughnut that you seek, we have them as well. Either twisted or made as a figure of “8” ( We like to think they get more surface area to get more Cinnamon).
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 fresh Australian 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.
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.
Call them what you like.
They are still a favourite for the Young and Young Hearted.
Dressed up with a topping of Whipped Sugar Icing, and Colourful Sprinkles making this a popular treat.
