  • About

At Bourke Street Bakery we mix together allspice, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and fruit soak through the basic sourdough to create this loaf. In our first year of trading we sold these loaves as a hot cross bun substitute (as we did not have a bun divider, it would have been extremely time-consuming to try and make a serious quantity of hot cross buns). This was justified by the un-researched fact that when the hot cross bun evolved they would have been sourdough-based.
