Breads

Our breads are probably some of the best in Europe, and the variety of grains, shapes and sizes makes the Dutch bakery an experience to visit. We only use unbleached flours and whole grain for our breads. For the market, we bake three different breads: 

Whole Wheat/Rye (picture), Six Grains Whole Wheat, and White Spelt.




Honey Cakes

Honey cakes are a traditional Dutch baked good that has its roots firmly in the Middle Ages. The dense, sweet breads are made with rye or wheat flour and contain exotic spices such as cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and ginger. We often eat a slice of it for breakfast, with a lick of butter or cream cheese, and again in the afternoon with our cup of coffee or tea.

Each cake is made with at least a half cup of local Idaho Wildflower honey!

Dutch Spice Cake: also known as "breakfast cake", this is a sweet and highly flavored bread made with molasses and honey, and richly flavored with cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and nutmeg. 

Old Wives Cake: made with whole wheat flour, spiced with cinnamon, clove and a generous scoop of anise seeds give this cake its traditional sweet licorice-like flavor. It is not known why it's called Old Wives cake: some say it's because it's so soft old toothless women can eat it, others say that the anise helps digestion and settles the tummy. Either way, it's a delicious treat for young and old!

Ginger Honey Cake: a flavorful, moist cake spiced with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom and three types of ginger: ground, fresh and candied. If you love ginger, this is your cake! This is a market favorite. It won a Blue Ribbon at the Western Idaho Fair in 2019.


Pastries

These traditional Dutch puff pastry treats are often eaten as a special treat. Filled with savory items such as cheese or sausage, they are consumed hot and often on-the-go. For the market, we bake these pastries filled with fresh fruit on the morning of the market.

These delicious pastries most often show up during coffee break in the morning or afternoon, but can also be enjoyed while you stroll the market. We always have a variety of fillings:

Apple, Chocolate, Cherry, Peach, Aged White Cheddar.

Small Pies

The pies, vlaaien, we bake for the market are typical for the most southern province of The Netherlands, Limburg. They are made with a laminated dough, filled with fresh fruit, and have a light butter streusel topping.

We offer the following varieties as individual pies (4 inch): 

Cherry, Apricot, Apple/Blackberry, Apple/Raisin, Plum/Vanilla (a market favorite!), Peach, Gooseberry, Lemon/Blueberry, Lemon/Blackberry, Pear Pumpkin Spice.

We also bake large (9 inch) pies to order. 

Appelbollen **NEW**

Sweet, firm apples baked in a puff pastry cover and filled with soaked raisins and walnuts*.....What a delight! 

Probably not a coincidence that this treat is enjoyed best in a wintery, cold setting. The appelbol, or apple dumpling, is often a sweet treat with morning coffee, or a sweet ending to a lovely meal.
