Pik A Pie Bakery has been awarded the crown for Australia’s Best Kitchener Bun, for the second consecutive year, at the Baking Association of Australia’s (BAA) South Australian Baking Show.

The Adelaide Hills Bakery has been whipping up their award-winning buns since 1999, and with two years of consecutive wins, they’ve clearly perfected their version of the classic South Aussie dessert.

“We sadly didn’t win Best Sausage Roll, but we did WIN BEST KITCHENER BUN for the 2nd year in a row. So we are pretty pleased with that,” Pik A Pie shared in a Facebook post.

Born from the rich German heritage and traditions embedded across the state, The Kitchener Bun is a true delight. Originally called the Berliner, the Kitchener Bun is made of yeast dough and is doughnut-like, just without the hole. This sweet treat is the ultimate addition to any afternoon tea or morning coffee run and is filled with fresh cream and jam and rolled in sugar.

This year’s South Australian Baking Show & Australia’s Best Sausage Roll competition was held at the Marion Hotel earlier this month, with 49 Bakeries competing and 274 pieces of product being judged over the day.

Official Trophies were presented at the Cocktail Awards Evening these included the Champion Loaf of the Show Trophy, Champion Cake Pastry of Show, the Official Winner of the 2024 Australias Best Sausage Roll, and of course, SA’s Best Kitchener Bun awarded to Pik A Pie Bakery.

Pik A Pie now has two locations, Meadows in the Adelaide Hills, and McLaren Vale. In addition to their delicious buns, you can also enjoy winter warmers like pies and sausage rolls, delicious doughnut creations, coffee, and all your favourite bakery goodies.
