Bread of the Month

Farm Bread

Frank’s favorite bread! A French country loaf with a slight sour tang. We like the flavor of this bread best with an extra dark crust. Farm loaves are $4.50 this month (reg. $6.25).

Cake of the Month

Dobos Torta

[doh-bosh] This traditional Hungarian coffeehouse torte was created in 1887 by well known chef and confectioner József C. Dobos (1847–1924). It's five thin layers of vanilla sponge cake and dark chocolate butter cream, all topped with pieces of crispy dark caramel. Taste one of Hungary's most famous tortas! All dobos tortas and slices are 20% off this month.

It's a Pumpkin Party
Start the day with moist and scrumptious pumpkin muffins, a favorite of Bakehouse staff. A sure sign fall is here is our pumpkin pie, made with local Guernsey Dairy heavy cream, Michigan honey, and a pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon in an all-butter crust. Grab an precious little pumpkin cupcake with rich cream cheese frosting. Finish out a fine fall day with a slice of pumpkin cheesecake made with Zingerman's Creamery fresh cream cheese (made right next door to us) spiced up and poured over a ginger jump up cookie crust.

More fall favorites
They're back! Don't miss the triumphant return of caramel apple cakes, esterházy torta, gingerbread coffeecakes, and palmiers. Stop in and ask for a taste.

Hamutáska
(ha-mu-tosk-a) A Transylvanian Hungarian cookie, made from delicate dough carefully hand-folded around honey walnut filling, baked to a golden brown and dusted with powdered sugar. We learned this special treat on our trip to Transylvania in 2012. The name means “cinder sack”, or the pouch you would have put your ashes in from a fire. They are a comforting treat, especially with a cup of tea.
