We got the opportunity to speak to the founders and get an insight into their upcoming plans. There is even a very interesting story behind the name and how this ‘Dozen’ actually symbolizes ‘thirteen’. The Baker’s Dozen currently operators in Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad. But their base kitchen is in Mumbai were everything is baked from hand without use of any preservatives or flavors. Their flagship store is also in Mumbai which was created with an European theme and the key focus being breads and not pastries.
We tried couple of their products ourselves and see how their live up to our expectations. The ‘Croissant’ literally had 25 layers and was super fluffy. The layers were so soft that it just melted in the mouth. Goes well with any hot drink like Coffee, Chai or even milk. Their Pain Aux Cereal’s (Sourdough) bread is made with flax and sesame seeds. Made with naturally occurring yeast it is slightly sour in taste. The Baker’s Dozen has a variety of snacks bread as well like the Ragi Crackers and the Lavash. You can try these breads with a variety of dips which makes them super delicious.
Their Red Velvet Cake is in the form of a brownie. The cake was delicious. But my favorite was their Banana Cake. The cake was so soft that it melted in the mouth without any effort. You must try it to believe it! The Double Chocolate Brownie was eggless and was soft from inside and little hard from the top. The brownie was quite dense. Their Fresh Orange Cake with Chocolate Drizzle had a subtle flavor of orange. The cake was nicely done and tasted super fresh!
