Ok.. Heywood is not exactly the biggest town on the map, but the Bakery is huge with plenty of space to shop, grab a cuppa or sit down and enjoy some home baked goodies.
One thing they do have which I find so hard to resist, but have of late (what is wrong with me?!) is their Bienstich (aka Beesting cake). Oh sooooooooo good! Crunchy sweet flaked almonds on top of a thin sponge, sandwiching a creamy, custardy mouthful of goodness and decadence.
But hey, let’s also go down the healthy path right? Salad rolls are obviously popular there, and I do have to say, rather scrumptious. Good old butter, a mixed salad, and don’t forget the mayo! Crunchy, fresh, made with love and super tasty. Highly recommended! They’re obviously popular because they have so many of them ready to walk out the door.
There are definitely multiple sweet choices and the vanilla slices are like Bienstich on steroids. Loaded with creamy goodness, you have a choice of Vanilla or French… (nope, I had no clue what that meant until I asked…). So, either icing sugar on top which will turn your clothes a different colour as soon as you take a bite, or icing to sink your teeth into. There’s nothing quite like a large gooey snot block is there? Or maybe there is… Bienstich… where are you?
