Every Saturday this year my goal is to try a new baking technique, try new to me bakeries, or have mini parties.
One afternoon I searched the web for bakeries in the Portland Metro Area and came across Baker & Spice Bakery. So I called up a friend and said, lets go try it out.
The moment we walked in the door the aroma hit us. MMM, love the smell of bread. The bakery makes small batches and uses quality ingredients. Just look at those artisan breads.
The bakery was packed with customers and I can see why. Not only did the place smell incredible, the bread look amazingly good and old world but they sell delicious looking baked goods too.
I came home with this mini coconut cake. The mild coconut taste shown through in this cake.
When we walked into Baker & Spice it reminded me of Le Panier in Seattle's Pike Place Market. The lovely aroma and the popularity of the place. This is a bakery I'll be back to again.
