Bread And Butter

Yesterday the girls and I were very excited and super blessed to have the wonderful opportunity to visit our local Bakers Delight
And have a behind the scenes look (and a play) at what goes on and how they make our bread.
BDwelcome
We were met by the friendly staff and shown out the back
Where we met the franchise owner, the lovely Taysha,
and Baker Tim.
He was very patient and lots of fun
He walked the girls through the process of bread making
BDlearning
He explained about the wonderfully fresh, Australian sourced ingredients, about the yeast, salt, improver, oil and water.
Talking about the wonderful products he makes everyday from scratch.
Poor man is at work at 1am, to start the baking of all that yummy bread!
BDseed
The girls then impressed him with their knowledge of seeds
But most of the time the girls were very hands on
BDflourhands
We were shown how the dough was made.

They weighed out all the ingredients

Tim showed us how to make it

into a few different loaves

Then the girls got to play with the dough
BDEdough
making a block loaf

and seeing if they could get theirs to fit in the tin

They had fun icing finger buns
BDicingbuns
and then they had free reign to decorate them,
BDfingerbuns
which they all enjoyed.

They helped make some date scones
Going through the whole process
From squashing out the dough
BDsconedough
to squashing it in the cutter
BDsquashrolls
to taking them out of the cutter
BDrawscones
to watching them come out of the oven
BDscones
and then yelling “HOT SCONES” so customers could hear them and come buy the hot scones!
The girls impressed Taysha with how good their plaited bread looked

and then (the best part of the day according to this flour face)
BDflourface
the girls were given some dough
BDpizzabases
and allowed to make their own pizzas
BDrawpizza
which were baked
BDpizzas
I even made one, a larger one, and Megan put on the topping

We were allowed to take all the yummy treats home
Along with some other goodies
BDsourdough
We all enjoyed the day and Megan said it best, with her doodling in the flour

One of the things that I like about Bakers Delight is that they are different
They have wonderful, friendly staff and their bread is yummy
and yesterday I got to see why
BDbag
When they talk about bread they glow.
You can see they are passionate about what they do and I think that shows through in their products
And I know this is true because their passion flowed through into us.
BDEpizza
and if it’s made with passion
it’s delicious!

I think it is fair to say we all love Bakers Delight!!
And did you know that you can love Bakers Delight too??
On Facebook
and on Twitter

We all had a wonderful time and I can’t thank Taysha and Tim (and the girls at the front counter) enough!

The smiles on the girls faces just showed that memories were made

Fun memories!

Thank you Bakers Delight for the opportunity and allowing us to have these wonderful memories!
