Continuing their 150th anniversary festivities, Iconic Port Adelaide-based institution Mayfair Bakery & Patisserie is digging through their historic recipe archives and bringing back some old favourites, starting with the Wagon Wheel.
This will not be your average Wagon Wheel. The team at Mayfair Bakery are keeping the classic chewy fluffy Marshmallow centre and pairing it with seasonal house made jams.
This first round of jams will be paying tribute to the classic by not only including fresh Raspberries, but also using Wild Hibiscus picked by traditional land owners. Mayfair will also be changing their jam flavours regularly, so keep an eye out for updates!
To complete the treat, Mayfair’s Wagon Wheels will be available in both dunked in White and Milk Belgian couverture chocolate and will finish with a topping of freeze dried raspberries and pistachios.
Phil Donnelly, Mayfair Bakery’s owner and baker is incredibly excited for this relaunch.
“I found an old recipe from Mayfair’s archives. I believe the original Mayfair Wagon Wheel recipe dates as far back to the late 19th century,” he says.
“As many much loved classics, it has a new 21st Century spin on a signature Mayfair twist on this traditional favourite.”
“We will use the best local seasonal fruits and flavours right here in our own backyard. We are very proud to be sourcing native Australian flavours,” continues Donnelly.
“You can’t get much more local than from our first nation people. Not only bringing their culture into a bakery environment but also providing new experiences.”
As well as the Wagon Wheels, Mayfair is also serving another fan favourite of their native ingredient range, their famous Vegan Wattle Seed tea cake.
Keeping with their regular tradition, their new Kransky of the Month is a Pork and Manuka Honey Kransky, made in collaboration with Organic Berkshire pig farmers in Boston Bay, called Boston Bay Smallgoods, located just north of Port Lincoln.
