On our way back from the Victorian mountain bike orienteering champs held from Cammeray Waters Conference Centre between Trentham and Woodend, we decided to refuel our bodies at the Trentham Bakery. It was mentioned in our Domino Trail posting and we had praised the real cream cakes but not so keen on the coffee.
Now I’m not a great pie person because even if the outside looks good, the inside rarely is. But it having been a muddy wet event I let Anitra pick out something hot while I tried the coffee place across the road that I noticed last time. ‘Jasper coffee’ said the sign — a promising brand. And it proved very palatable indeed so now we have an alternative to Red Beard bakery on their busy weekends.
Back at the car we shared a lovely looking spanakopita. The pastry and the spinach cheese filling tasted every bit as good as it looked. Then onto a vege pastie with the same result. Nothing greasy, plenty of filling and all fresh taste and feel. Yummm. So it is pies and pasties and pastries in Trentham from now on.
And yes Anitra did get a couple of cakes too. One cream filled and the other was a lemon meringue tart. Beautifully tart. And judging by the people who walked in and asked for those without even consulting the display, they are a well loved specialty of the shop.
btw between Trentham and Daylesford there are now quite a few places selling fresh vegies, eggs etc. We picked up a cabbage that needed heavy lifting techniques and the cauliflowers looked superb.
