Behind The Counter: Episode Three


“Temperature of the butter and temperature of the dough are key factors here. The other one is time.” —Allison Reid

With a little patience and just the right amount of elbow grease, you’ll be ready to make your own right at home.

The business of busy

It’s been a time since the last post here on Baker’s Notes but not for lack of goings on.  The next issue of our paper journal is ready and will be in the bakery and available online on May 5!  This issue’s theme is Rise & Shine and I must say it looks beautiful.  It’s full of recipes including our amazing super duper cinnamon rolls and buttermilk spice coffeecake. You’ll also find an ode to toast and a great piece on our coffee philosophy by Bob.  I was down at the press check this week and it’s exciting to see something with so many parts come to life. I know the real moment will come when the books are delivered, I always get a bit weepy!

We’ve also been busy in the bakery transitioning from winter to spring (with a brief foray into summer weather wise)  It’s been refreshing to have the screen door open and to have some lighter brighter things in our dessert case.  This time of year we try to take stock and enjoy the relative quiet before we really get going for summer.  We make plans, work on our systems and look at ways we can squeeze just a little bit more out of our space.  I’m hoping to post some of this process in the coming weeks as well as a couple of recipes and of course some beautiful pictures, I promise we won’t be gone so long next time!

Cream Puffs!

We have them now – drizzled with caramel, sprinkled with a bit of pink sea salt, topped with a  dusting of powdered sugar and really delicious.
