Mumma Review

I just love The Bush Bakery!  Situated in Leslie Vale, roughly a 20 minute drive south of Hobart or via the scenic route around Fern Tree, the Bush Bakery resides in a shed (albeit a very clean and modern appearing shed!) adjacent to the family home of the owners and bakers themselves.  My hubby and I have been going to the Bakery for years and now enjoy taking our Great Man there for a bit of a family drive and spot of lunch - often eaten at the river opposite the Longley Pub!  If you fancy eating your goodies ASAP there is a small seated area under a wooden shelter on the grounds of the Bakery as well as picturesque scenery to match.

The Bakery sell a variety of tasty pie options (hot for your picking or sold in cold packs in the fridge to enjoy at home) with our picks often being a Sheppard's Pie; Bacon & Egg; or Curried Chicken....yum!  

But my eyes are always drawn instantly to the cakes.....yummy, yummy!  They sell cakes individually as well as in half dozen packs and stock a plethora of home-made goodies including carrot cakes; chocolate cakes; danishes; fruit strudels; fruit tarts; caramel or peppermint slice; kiss biscuits; anzac's.....the list goes on!  

But my favourite without a doubt is their French Vanilla Slice - honestly it has got to be one of the best around!  With deliciously light, flaky pastry; smooth custard and oh just right icing it really is simply delicious.  In addition to that we enjoy their famous chocolate mousse truffles - for around $1 each they are a true little delight and finish off a meal (albeit a pie meal) very nicely!  

One of Tassie's best kept secrets The Bush Bakery is certainly unique and a terrific place to head to for a weekend or weekday drive with the family :)
