Fresh From The Oven! - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Fresh


I find traditional bakeries unique and personalised, unlike the modern bakeries today. Located in a sleepy estate in Semabwang Hills is this bakery which is popular among residents for its variety of yummy buns and traditional breads.

At various times of the day, we could smell the aroma of baked bread fresh from the oven! mmm.......


fresh from the oven, ready to be eaten!


Singapura Bakery and Confectionery started more than 30 years ago. Their age-old methods of preparing traditional type of breads and sweet buns have not changed over the years. The yesteryear decor and pricing in this bakery evoke a sense of nostalgia and bring back memories of my childhood.

Their popular buns are those with red bean, curry and coconut fillings. The small buns cost only $0.60 each, while the traditional white loaves and milk bread cost between $1.20 and $2.20.

these small rolls are great with a cup of hot coffee!

Despite no fancy icing and packaging, regular customers including me love to patronise this traditional bakery for their simple and tasty breads, baked fresh every day. Many of us are passing on the word to friends and relatives .....

  5. I love bread. In fact my youngest was allergic to packaged breads so I learned to bake my own early on.
    Now I still love to bake, but unfortunately my weakness is I love to eat what I bake and it makes me fat. So I just don't anymore.
    But when I go to my friend's home in Germany I enjoy the local bakery and all their fine breads and rolls!!!

  8. I love the smell of baked bread.In Katong our fav bakery/pastryshop was ChinMeeChin,don't know if it exists anymore.Recently here there was a fad for home breadmaking machines.Not bad but lacking in variety.Not for PangSiuSees unless Asian version of machine exists.
    I remember this bakery in the Sembawang estate and I think my mother & aunty raved over something called pangsiusees there.

  10. Hi ecl,

    I wonder if stores like Bread Talk r also mass-produced ? I do like their range of yums :-) Indeed it is a pity that traditional shops with honest prices r diminishing in SG.

    Bread is a staple for europeans, so big cities or little towns like ours hv several bakery offering fresh bread 6 days a week. I love the buttery fragrance floating out their stores !

    In the old days, those redbean n coconut buns comes in a pack of 4. Nowadays they r sold per piece. It's expensive if u hv to feed a big family :-o

  28. I too love local (non-chain) bakeries. Am fortunate in that there's about 3 minutes' walk from me that makes really good egg tarts and pineapple buns -- that often are newly out of the oven and pleasantly hot when I go buy them. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. we call these small rolls "pandesal". Filipinos love pandesal in the morning with black coffee. and they smell divine, too!

    ReplyDelete
  30. That´s definitely the best way to get good bread. I also buy med bread at a bakery that makes old fashioned bread, but I have to pay 5 US dollars for a bread.
    Happy weekend.

  31. oh you just can't beat fresh baking...I can smell those buns all the ways over here!

    ReplyDelete

  40. everything looks so delicious!
    I've owned 2 bakeries in my lifetime, never again. Baking everything fresh every day is a monumental amount of work!

    ReplyDelete

  44. I think bakeries use too commercialized machineries to make their goodies nowadays. I love eating home made baked bread and pastries. They taste so much better and different.

  45. The peacock was there during the Deepavali celebration, that's why you didn't see it anymore!

  46. You should try the hot pandesal bread of the Philippines. Yummy!

  48. seeing the breads so freshly baked like that makes me feel like having a bite!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I am drooling.. wanna eat those rolls.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi ECL, for additional information in the Philippines there is also small rolls similar to what is shown in the picture and it is also very good with cup of coffee. Try in with margarine it is very tasty, we call it "Pandesal" it cost about S$.01 per piece. If you'll have a chance to visit the Philippines you can ask some bakeries about our famous pandesal. :-) mattscradle
