How the Baker’s Bounty Stole My Heart….
Now I am not one to go to a farmer’s market and buy anything. In fact the very idea of going outside under a tent and buying dessert actually kind of made me want to say…yuck. I didn’t get why the lines were always so long across the street from where I worked on Court Street in Brooklyn, New York.
One day my co worker asked me to try some cake, once he said it was “cranberry pumpkin bread with walnuts” I instantly thought to myself, “white people always making something up in their spare time and calling it dessert.” Yes my ignorant side comes out from time to time, I said “no thank you.” He insisted I try it so I rolled my eyes of course and took it. That piece of cake sat there for an entire hour and I got hungry and gave in.
I feel like the moment I tasted this dessert I had a “Come to Jesus” moment. I felt like my co worker was waiting for me to give in and eat it just to say “it’s good ain’t it.” I asked him how did he become such a great baker” His answer, “I didn’t bake it, I got it across the street from the farmer’s market, the company is called “Baker’s Bounty.”
Once I got there it was like adult sweets heaven. I looked at names that were posted on the top of every dessert and gushed by all the creative desserts, “Walnut, Apple Cinnamon cake, Apple Crumb cake, Pumpkin raspberry bread, eggnog cake, chocolate pumpkin cake, carrot cake topped with cream cheese icing, the list goes on and on. I couldn’t decide what to get so I did what any normal person does, I got the same thing my co worker brought “cranberry pumpkin bread with walnuts.”
It comes in a loaf size, its made with all natural ingredients and is the best thing on earth. The pumpkin is not sweet so the little sprouts of cranberry gives just the right amount of sweet and the walnuts bring it all together by not creating a cranberry loaf.
I took the loaf home to my mother and she instantly did the same thing I did, “no thank you” was her reply. I said just take a small piece and I promise you will thank me later. She tried it and told me to order one for her on Tuesday, took it to her job and I became the farmer’s market girl. Every Tuesday and Thursday “Baker’s Bounty” is under the tent with the rest of the vendors selling their freshly baked goods (and it’s always fresh) they don’t just sell desserts you can get bread, some pizza all homemade.
One of the worker’s Pete is the nicest guys you will ever meet, he comes to you helps you out and gives you honest opinions about what you will like and what you might want to pass on. They take cash and credit and their prices don’t go over 12 bucks per cake or loaf. Don’t worry if you want your favorite in a serving size they make all the big desserts small for 5 bucks, and you get a bang for your buck.
Make sure you visit they are at different locations and they have their own place in New Jersey! You can thank me later!!!
