Mother Dough Bakery

Almond croissant cross section

Mother Dough Bakery is a sweet little bakery off North Bridge Road. They sell a variety of baked goods – bread, pastries, cakes etc. It’s owned by the head baker, Naadhira Ismail, who, according to the bakery’s about page, studied baking in New York. (By the way, she’s gorgeous! Just do a Google image search on her.)

The first thing I tried was the Almond Croissant ($5). Very flaky and buttery, as any croissant should be, but better than other ones because the filling (frangipane) wasn’t super sweet. YUM!

Lemon Cake

Next up was the Lemon Cake ($? – I forgot to take note). The lemon flavour was on point but this slice was just a tad too sweet for me.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
Hazelnut brownie

I’ve never had a store bought brownie that was so generous with the nuts. This Hazelnut Brownie ($? – sorry) was LOADED with hazelnuts! It was all gooey, fudgey, chocolatey and nutty in the most wonderful ways. If you bring it home, make sure to warm it up slightly to get the maximum deliciousness out of this beauty.
