While your heart may want to bake a cake for your loved ones, your mind is probably flooded with so many other things to account for in the hubbub of the holidays. That’s why the Co-op bakery offers a range of delicious baked goods made fresh in-store by our skilled bakers. So put your mind at ease! You can trust us to provide you with delicious desserts, made easy.
We’re proud to carry top-quality treats like locally-made pound cakes that follow the traditional “pound-of-each” ratio—a pound each of flour, butter, and sugar. Pound cake can be sliced into wedges for easy hand-held snacking, made into trifle, toasted, or even made into a knee-buckling French toast. Also in-store is Stöllen, a Dutch almond bread made with real fruit and nuts containing an almond paste centre. Just slice the bread then spread the almond paste across the slice for a delectable treat that goes well warmed and served with vanilla ice cream.
The Co-op bakery offers a range of entertaining trays for breakfast, lunch, and dessert. They are a great way to please up to 30 people with quality sweets and savoury treats. We also offer pre-order ready-made trays for your convenience. Just call ahead and we’ll set it aside for you to pick up in-store. For those feeling adventurous, our catering program also offers smaller options such as our Sweet Selections tray, where you can try up to 13 different kinds of baked goods.
Our bakery also has a range of cakes, pies, and other familiar favourites sure to please. We can customize practically anything we bake, and can make things for you according to your specifications or allergies. Also back in-store are Ginger and Brad cookies!
