Traditional German style doughnuts (berliners) & pretzels
Images - Bretzel.biz
If you're a lover of pretzels and you haven't heard of Bretzel.biz, you need to ask yourself which rock you've been hiding under. They're a popular sight at huge events like festivals and Oktoberfest events. A popular supplier of speciality Bretzels (pretzels) and Berliners (German doughnuts - baked, not fried) made in the authentic German method, they also cater to events and supply Bretzels wholesale.
Baking Bretzels is a fine and time-consuming art and loving rolled by hand by the Bretzel bakers. The bakery is decked out with equipment imported from Germany as well as a standing oven that can bake 200 Bretzels at a time. If you'd like to be a Bretzel baker, contact them via social media eg. their FB page.
With coronavirus at our doorstep, they continue to bake berliners and bretzels fresh and hot out of the oven. So popular, loyal followers travel from near and far to support their bake nights and having a sold-out night is not uncommon.
The best way to stay updated is via their Facebook page where they make announcements of bake nights and take orders on said FB page under the appropriate bake night post. They also put up notifications on Instagram. Be sure to be following them so as not to miss out on what has to be one of the best, if not the best bretzels in Melbourne. I've definitely chowed down on a fair few over the years and to date still remains a favourite.
If you absolutely miss out, Blacksheep_3015 next door to the bakery also stocks 3 of the flavours. The salted cinnamon and the chocolate filled ones throughout the week.
Watch out for bake nights where the offerings go something like cinnamon, savoury and salted caramel bretzels, 1 kg bags of plain flour for sale, and raspberry-filled topped with cinnamon sugar glaze; choc hazelnut filled topped with choc sprinkles; silk vanilla filled dusted in icing sugar and lemon curd filled topped with shredded coconut berliners.
