Great Harvest Bread

100% Delicious

All our Whole Wheat breads are made with flour we mill fresh each day, and none of our products contain High Fructose Corn Syrup.  Complete ingredient labels will allow you to check all ingredients, and we will be very pleased to answer your questions any time about what goes in to our breads. All our breads this month except American Rye (Molasses), Cinnamon Raisin Walnut (Molasses) and Lemon Sunburst (Cane sugar) are sweetened with honey.  American Rye and Cinnamon Raisin Walnut are a Vegan breads with no egg wash.  Cedar River Sourdough is unsweetened entirely and is also Vegan as are our Baguettes and French bread.   Please keep giving us your input about dietary preferences so that we can make informed menu choices in the future.  Any of our breads like Dakota or High 5 Fiber that are topped with seeds or grain or flour instead of a shiny top are free of Eggs but do usually contain Honey.  Stop by any time or phone to discuss this with Dion or Laurel.  In the meantime, please check back with us here every month as we highlight new breads being introduced.  Our menu will be changing often.  The following is the February Menu.  Breads in bold below can be sliced for your sandwich.

King Cakes!

We are proud to bring you this New Orleans recipe of a traditional Pecan King Cake.  The swirl is a rich Pecan Cream Cheese and the oval ring is glazed and liberally sprinkled with Mardigras colored sugar.  A full sized cake comes festively packaged with three strands of Mardigras beads and a baby which you can insert into the cake.  Traditionally, whoever gets the baby in their slice brings the cake to the next party, of which their are many at this season in the Big Easy.  At the bakery, we are Cedar Rapids Mardigras central!  Dion will roll out these gorgeous treats for you every Wednesday and Friday morning until Mardigras (the 25th).  On Fat Tuesday we'll have a big party complete with Shrimp, Chicken, Andouille Gumbo (You'll think you are in New Orleans, Cher, believe me!) and Beignets with Dion's recipe adapted from the Cafe Du Monde's and fried fresh on our patio no matter the weather.  :)  Pick up a King Cake today (we sell half and quarter cakes as well) and join us on Tuesday the 25th for Gumbo and Beignets (and/or order a Quart to take home for supper... it freezes really well as we can attest, having just finished our last frozen quart last week!)    Laissez les bon temp rouler!

Lemon Sunburst

Back on the menu to brighten our winter days, this fluffy loaf of sunshine is a white, lemon loaf with a lemon glaze.  It's perfect for brunch or afternoon snack any day of the week! 

Cheddar Garlic

Big chunks of extra sharp cheddar enrich this soft white loaf, perfect to enjoy by itself or make a delectable toasted sandwich.  We make some hamburger buns too, and these are wonderful both for hamburgers or for breakfast sandwiches!  Pre-order some for a spectacular brunch!

3 Olive Swirl

Once a month on the third Tuesday every month, we make this gorgeous savory loaf absolutely overflowing with green, kalamata, and black olives and Parmesan cheese.  If you like olives, do not miss this!  We make low carb bread on the same Tuesday, so don't be confused.  The 3 Olive Swirl is definitely NOT low carb!  :)
