Pumpkin this and that at Lovejoy

PumpkinRollBlogRev

Throw on a cozy sweater and stroll over to Lovejoy to pamper yourself with some of our favorite fall treats. Feeling decadent? Try a slice of our Salted Caramel-covered Pumpkin Roll. Inside is a fluffy pumpkin sponge cake swirled around a heavenly cream cheese filling. Outside is a dusting of candied pumpkin seeds and pecans, wedged into a generous drizzle of Salted Caramel sauce. If one slice isn’t enough, you can buy the whole roll too!

And if you want to catch some rays before the big bright ball disappears for the winter, sit outside with a cup of our Autumn-spiced Latte. Spiked with notes of cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, we also kick it up with caramel and pumpkin spice syrup. Every sip will wrap you up in the warm fuzzies.

Beginning October 25th our Halloween cookies will be ready to haunt your cookie jar (if they make it that far before you’re “gobblin'” it up: ha, see what we just did there?). Stop by to stock up on the 25th!

We’ll see you soon.

Have buns of fun on the Fourth!

ArielShot
Quickly becoming a “take-home” favorite, Lovejoy’s beautiful hamburger and hotdog buns are the PERFECT way to elevate your 4th of July celebration. Delicate enough to host a simple egg salad, but still hearty enough to support a big juicy burger or brat, these light and buttery breads have a perfectly moist, rich consistency that will make your cookout truly special. We offer them at our Lovejoy West location, 939 NW 10th Avenue. They are also available at the following fine establishments:
Whole Foods: Pearl, Bridgeport, Sandy, Fremont, Burnside
Zupans: Belmont, Macadam, Boones Ferry, Burnside

Last minute Father’s Day Idea…

FathersDay

Yikes!  Father’s Day is this Sunday and if you can’t bear to give another golf shirt, necktie or tool caddy, consider the Lovejoy Bakers Truffle Trio!  At only $4.75, it’s a great way to show dad (dad-to-be, gramps, hubby, uncles, brothers) the sweetness of your love. Packaged with a gift bow.

3 Perfect Ways to Make Mom’s Day

UPDATE: Orders are now closed for Mother’s Day Cakes, HOWEVER you can still stop by Lovejoy to pick up some lovely treats for Mom! Gift cards also make a great gift ♥

Mother’s Day is next Sunday May 12 and if you haven’t made plans yet, we have some great ideas for you. Since Portlanders LOVE their brunch, Lovejoy Bakers will be making some special additions to our menu!

1) Choose from Royal Eggs Benedict with Roasted Asparagus or a creamy Chevre and Spinach Strata crowned with a Sunny-Side Egg.

2)  We’ll also be offering a delicate Mother’s day Mimosa Cake, pictured above, made with pink champagne and filled with mandarin orange cream and frosted with orange buttercream.  You can preorder this cake on line (scroll down for order form) and have it inscribed with Mom’s name or another short message.

3) Pick up some chocolate dipped meringue roses (flavored with orange blossom water, yum!)… they are light as air and a wonderful gift, just because.

And one more thing, you may also order a CHOCOLATE VERSION of the Mimosa Cake filled with mandarin orange cream and frosted with orange butter cream. To order, complete the form below by noon on Thursday. We will have your cake ready to pick up on Sunday. Payment is received at the time pick-up.

 


Easter ‘Sun’ Day

The weather is supposed to be GLORIOUS this weekend, so whether you celebrate Easter or not, hop over to Lovejoy Bakers for some special treats to herald our much anticipated Spring! There are bunnies, chicks and other fanciful cookies, hot cross buns, as well as delicate egg-shaped macaroons that melt in your mouth. And yes, weather permitting, the patio will be set up with tables and chairs to dine al fresco and soak up all the Vitamin D we’ve been missing!

For the Irish in all of us


Just in time for St Patrick’s Day, Irish Soda Bread is now available at Lovejoy Bakers. First conceived by homemakers in the 1880s who had neither ovens nor leavening, Irish Soda Bread was cooked in a heavy cast iron pot placed directly in the fire. It’s traditionally made with flour, baking soda, buttermilk and salt. Our version is scented with cardamom and gets a light dusting of crystallized sugar. Enjoy it warm, with a little butter and a cup of hot tea.
