Pat a Cake Bakery

Peach sponge roll

Peach sponge roll

I’ve always hated those jam sponge rolls with crusty crystallised jam sugar and gritty sponge cake. This is nothing like them and it’s amazing and divine and ridiculously cheap and delicious. You need one of those in your life. The sponge is soft. The fruit is tasty. The cream is fresh.

Pasties!

They make pretty decent cheese and veg pasties. My only point of contention is that they baked some cheese on top. I don’t go for the crunchy cheese so much.

All in all, it’s a fantastic bakery. Check these guys out.

Sour Cherry Doughnut - Clarendon Bakery

Sour Cherry Doughnut – Clarendon Bakery

This is a post for anyone who really, really loves food. It’s a post about unhealthy, carbohydrate and fat laden deep-fried goodness. I’m talking about Clarendon Bakery, situated on the Main Road of Clarendon. If you’re heading there from the Southern suburbs (think Flagstaff Hill etc), it’ll be on your right after you pass the hotel.

Clarendon Bakery makes the most delicious doughnut. It’s better than Krispy Kremes or whatever other American franchise the Eastern States try to lord over us. It’s better than the old jam doughnuts you get at the Adelaide Show.

It’s a doughnut filled with sour cherry (think morello cherries), sliced open and filled with FRESH cream. I’m sure everyone appreciates the taste of fresh cream with a touch of icing sugar, just as no one appreciates bakers cream. I appreciate that vile stuff even less when I ask someone behind a bakery counter if they use fresh cream, and they protest that they do, and I buy something, and it has bakers cream in it. The stuff is vile. This is the opposite. Clarendon Bakery only use fresh cream.

Go there, buy a pasty (choose from Cornish, cheese & bacon, Clarendon special or classic) and help it slide down with a sour cherry doughnut. Their pasties are really good, as are the pies. You will not regret it. Unless you’re dairy or gluten intolerant. It still might be worth it!
