You would think that an apple-growing island like Pender would have a bread that incorporates the sweetness and texture of our apples. They’re everywhere! From the famed orchards of Port Washington, all the way down to the South Pender legacy orchards looking out on the Salish Sea.
Well, here’s the Happy Monk Baking Company’s bread that truly celebrates our apple heritage.
Pender Island Apple Bread takes pride in our far-ranging apple crops, this time with the intense flavour of Elstar apples, the smoother taste of Orange Cox Pippins, some leftover Libertys from two weeks ago and a mystery variety … just a handful of the many apples that grow on our Island’s shores. They’re all mixed together for a taste bonanza.
The apples are processed through our workhorse dehydrator and we’ll bake the dried fruit into our Salish Sourdough dough. Dehydrating intensifies their flavour and at the same time prevents them releasing excess moisture into the dough. You’ll taste the essence of apple throughout, but you’ll also get a sweet flavour burst when you bite into a morsel of dried apple.
To make it even more Pender, we’re adding some of the best cider produced anywhere — our very own Twin Islands Cider. That adds a new layer of apple intensity so you can truly celebrate Pender Island’s apple excellence!
Great for a vegan diet. This is a Baker’s Choice bread and available Sunday only.
