Local Breads And Artisan Breads

I crave for good artisan sourdough breads but the Singaporean in me loves a Soft pillowy red bean bun fresh from the oven anytime of the day.

This bakery is more accurately situated within Marina Square ( on the second floor ) near where Bangkok jam is .

I love their pumpkin bread which is filled with luxurious pumpkin purée . The bread is so soft , almost like a pillow 😊.

This is under the same management as mama bakery at both Novena Square 2 and fortune centre .

Be sure to swing by especially after 6pm because breads sell for close to 40 percent discount .

Do give their signature dark chocolate couverture bread and their wide range of whole meal breads a try .

Not artisan type bread but more Japanese type soft breads - healthier though !

You won’t find another establishment that makes their own pau fillings just like how just dough does theirs.

The yam filling is made from scratch and is so creamy and aromatic . Without any added fillers , what you get is that subtle sweetness of pure yam.

The pau dough lends its colour from natural fruits and vegetables and makes it extra fun to eat because of its unique outlook. Topped with a walnut , this added a little crunch to the pau .

Pair your pau with their homemade ginger teh and just sit and watch the world go by with that beautiful fountain view .

Really really really good breads ... ...

The last time I had Maison Kayser was more than 6 to 7 years ago when they first opened .

For a while , the prices seemed to be increasing and the quality seemed to declined so I stopped partronizing.

While shopping at ntuc finest at Scotts square in recent times, I had the privilege to try the bread sampler and I thought the breads were really flavourful - especially the dark chocolate and hazelnut honey bread . I assure you - if you try a piece , you can’t stop....

Expensive as it might be at 5.80 and for a relatively small loaf, I gave in to my heart over my wallet this time and got the black sesame sourdough because I was craving for a good sourdough bread and hadn’t find one that I really really enjoyed amongst the bakeries in Singapore .

You pay a price and you get the quality . The black sesame sourdough bread was crusty on the exterior and chewy and moist inside . The bread was neither too dense Nor too dry - it was absolutely perfect .

Using only natural leaven and a Long Long Long fermentation process , the sourdough flavour was well pronounced but not disturbing - in fact, it was very enjoyable.

I found some of the bread offerings from Maison kayser to be quite similar to bread and hearth , especially the matcha orange and the dark chocolate rolls . Even Their pain au Chocolat share a certain resemblance . Not that anyone should be particularly concerned but that’s just the investigative part about me 😛

Do give the dark chocolate and hazelnut honey bread samples a try if you are in the area 😊

If this doesn’t get you out of bed in the morning ... ..... what will ?? 😝

I am addicted to Dong Po cafe . Everything about it os Homemade .

This is the best bostock in Singapore ( not that it can be found widely in the first place ) and it deserves some pretty good attention. I researched and found that the bostock is actually a traditional French recipe 😊

Crisp sliced almonds over a layer of frangipani and on to of a well toasted homemade bread. The bostock is very light and surprisingly not sweet at all so perfect for those of you who have Low tolerance to sweets.

Beautiful croissant filled with a deep dark chocolate flavour .

Crisp on the outside and slightly moist with well developed layers on the inside.

I can see why this the TOP three bakes at bread and hearth .

Service staff is kind to Toast the pastries just before serving so that elevates the enjoyment level 😊

I can’t get enough of these fluffy homemade Hainanese soft buns with a caramel kaya .

Never mind the sugar or the carbs because they are worth every bit .

These buns are so fluffy and airy and crisp . Paired with the creamy luxurious caramel kaya - it’s a matchmake in heaven .

Not many cafes make their own buns these days and this is the reason why I keep coming back to YY cafe .

If you drop by early , do get a portion of their white breakfast bee hoon with their homemade chilli 😊

Simple food done right and so affordable too 😊

Urban Loaf Factory
Alexandra central mall

What an unexpected find in this sleepy mall next to Ikea , Alexandra.

Chef and baker Valerie Kong’s is the owner of this takeaway bread shop. All breads are made with sourdough and I particularly enjoyed the dark chocolate banana bread . So moist with an intense chocolate banana flavour - this bread was really enjoyable - naturally sweet from the bananas and with a slight tangy undertone from the sourdough :) . Very very addictive !

All naturale bread fans will be happy to know that no sugar or preservatives are added to her breads so eat with your mind at ease 😜.

Given the work and the quality of ingredients - pieces are a little steep though 😝.

It’s the time of the year again 🐹

Although sum moulin has lost its former glorious days when it was at Shaw Orchard when its breads and pastries were more Japanese- like , they still have pretty good hot cross buns.

Try the original hot cross buns or the new Yuzu hot cross buns . Both are fluffy and airy and studded with aromatic fruits .

At 1.50 , I like how affordable these hot cross buns are as opposed to the over priced hot cross buns at other bakeries .

You can also get these hot cross buns at four leaves bakery . I have found many similarities between the breads at sun moulin and four leaves - suspect that they are under the same management now - thus explaining the rather localised type of bread sold at sun moulin now 😊

Nevertheless - do give these buns a try and eat them while warm :) I’d usually avoid buying the pre packed ones ( sold at 4 in a pack ) and would only buy those that are sold by the piece . They somehow taste different to me :) perhaps I just dislike having my hot cross buns squeezed into a pack and having see them become compressed 😮

I recalled that donuts used to be my default choice in a bakery when I was a child .

Progressively I stopped eating donuts simply because the standards of donuts have fallen so much and most are prepared at central kitchens so much so that what you get is a greasy bread with loads of melted icing sugar.

At Y Y , it’s completely different . They have brought back the real thing by making their donuts fresh in house every day . The donuts are so fresh and tender with a good flavour suggesting that the dough has rested well .

They are ready at about lunchtime ( ie 12.15 ) and you will see How the OLs grab them in batches of 10 .

Go try and revive your childhood donut fantasy 🍩 again .

Being a bread lover, I can spend an entire time admiring breads in bakeries.

Provence is one such bakery that I never get tired of visiting because of the pretty good variety of breads they have .

Sometimes I would opt for a petit croissant 🥐 and sometimes a milk bun and other times, just a plain walnut flower bun with a cup of coffee.

This time round I had the tomato cheese pizza bread studded with black sesame. The cafe staff was nice to help warm up my pizza bread for me .
The combination of the Savory melted cheese and sweet tomato slices against the slightly tart pizza sauce and the chewy pizza bread was truly enjoyable.

This makes for a quick lunch and a good pizza alternative since this pizza bread is good for one and extremely affordable at 2.50.

Japanese sweets cafe

In a corner of Lau Pa Sat is this sleepy Japanese sweets and cakes cafe which serves up all day breakfast, pancakes , Delish egg and tuna croissants ( that resembles tiong bahru’s croissants 🥐) and d-I-y pasta set lunches.

I opted for the bagel which looked too good to resist. Distinctively different from most bagels , this bagel looked so fluffy and fresh with a nice shine on it .

I requested for it to be warmed up and it was delicious. It had a deep flavour ( good fermentation of dough ) and a moist interior with a slight crisp on the outside. Paired with cream cheese or just simple a sunny side up - this was most satisfying .

The cafe has a whole range of Japanese soft sponge cakes 🍰 too and I have heard good reviews about them. Creamy cakes are not my thing so will let you be the judge 😊
