Batter Bakery

Saturdays are for BUNS!

Jen M.Comment

Saturdays have always been a special day for Batter, since we LOVE selling at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. We purchase all of our weekly produce, find seasonal inspiration for new recipes, catch up with our market customers and neighboring vendors, and enjoy a day of being outside on the stunning SF waterfront.

Now Saturdays are even MORE special thanks to some new laminated dough experiments. We've been adding buns (savory, sticky, and morning) to our Saturday market offerings, as well as croissants. You won't find any plain, white croissants around here... sorry/not sorry! You'll see playful and seasonal flavors (blood orange marmalade, sesame tahini, sea salt poppy, manchego herb); as well as decadent buns (espresso cream, citron mascarpone, sun-dried tomato and feta, date cardamom, pear ginger sticky). To make it even more interesting, we're adding in freshly-milled local grains to our dough. Favorites so far include purple barley, rumsey light (a chiddam blanc de mars blend), and akmolinka flours. Who said breakfast should be boring?!?!

Visit us Saturdays at the Ferry Building to snag one of these limited quantity treats! You won't regret it.

New Year + New Treats

Jen M.Comment

Whether or not your holiday season was filled with overindulgence, we get it... the new year makes you want to start off on a fresh, healthy note. We don't disagree that a few months of excess EVERYTHING begs for simplicity to reset come January. Now, we aren't going to encourage your " New Year, New You!" diet, full of restrictions, limitations, and ridiculousness, because, let's face it... that's not our style here at Batter. We have an all in moderation approach, so we ARE going to encourage you to be extra active, squeeze that yoga class in, and, best of all, try some of our favorite new treats.

The other thing you might not know is that we sneak whole grain flours into just about everything we make; are on the constant mission to tone down sweetness in our baked goods, and use only the best produce to make flavors really shine. You might not even notice that a lot of these new treats are no refined sugar, whole grain, or gluten conscious!

18 Things YOU should try this month. Since it's 2018, and all...

1. Ancient grain biscotti
2. 100% whole grain chocolate chip cookies
3. Seedy Granola
4. Coconut Walnut Date Bars
5. Candied Citron Pound Cake
6. Apple Oat Pecan Muffins
7. Cashew Butter Coconut Banana Bread
8. Chocolate Fog Cookies
9. Mesquite Cornbread
10. Cashew Butter Chocolate Blondies
11. Fig & Seed Granola Bars
12. Graham Crackers
13. Chocolate Date Cake
14. Mandarin Molasses Bread
15. Chia Almond Overnight Oats
16. Spelt Crust Quiche
17. Cardamom Rye Bundt Cake
18. Pistachio Angel Food Cake

Now, raise an espresso and a treat to 2018!
