One bite into Oxford Bakehouse’s signature sausage rolls and you know you’re tasting something truly special. Flavoured with onions and sage, the house-made pork sausage is tender and juicy. The sausage is wrapped in buttery, flaky, from-scratch puff pastry baked to golden perfection. According to the May family, who run the Oxford Bakehouse, these bite-sized sausage rolls have been their bestsellers from the start.
Oxford Bakehouse started off in England as the Handmade Cake Company, with Suzanne May and her mother at the helm. When Suzanne moved to Canada, she quickly began receiving requests for her baking. From classic scones to custard tarts to a rotating slew of cakes, the May family’s talent for baking is easy to see. Suzanne, Tom, Bethany, and Eleanor May run the kitchen, while Natalie Morris mans the counter. As Suzanne says, “We all love working together because it is lovely to have a job where you can be creative and make products that make people happy.”
The Oxford Bakehouse joined Crossroads Market this past Christmas, and Cornish pasties have become a market favourite. These pocket-sized pies stuffed with beef, onions, potatoes and swede are delicious. While their savoury offerings are an absolute delight, Oxford Bakehouse’s sweeter treats are not to be missed either. The bakery offers different cakes by the slice weekly and always has the classic Victoria sandwich cake on offer (an airy vanilla sponge cake with a generous layer of buttercream and jam).
Now, excuse me while I finish scarfing down these sausage rolls!
