Windmill Bakery – Huntsville Ontario

Almond ring huntsville ontario bakery

I went out today to take a few pictures of the fresh snow fall, and on the way back I decided to stop in at the Windmill Bakery in Huntsville. It just so happened the bakery was having an open house and giving out A LOT of free samples. YUMMMY! I could not resist, just take a look at all the delicious baked goods they had! (I know my girl friend sure liked them)

I was offered coffee or ginger hot chocolate. I had never tried ginger hot chocolate before so I picked up a cup, it was delicious. There was apple beignets (apple, loosely wrapped in a fried dough and sprinled with some crystalized cinnamon) and sausage rolls next to the coffee. I really liked the apple beignets and my girlfriend loved the sausage rolls, but there was much more to try.

Next I moved on to the almond ring! I remember quite a few years ago when my dad brought one of these home. It was so delicious but I have never seen one since then. I saw one for sale in the front shop and was happy to see they had samples. Just as I expected it was really good, and made right here in the bakery, what more could you want?

Not only was the almond ring delicious, it is only $12.95 for a butter almond wreath (with some fancy edibles on top) and $6.95 for a butter almond stick (I bought a stick before I left)

Windmill Bakeries had many other sweets to try. They had Sweet breads, Desserts such as butter tarts, mixed nut and fruit tarts, blueberry starlets, breads, buns and rolls, Cookies, bars, squares and even meat pies and pot pie! Windmill Bakery has it all!

As if giving away all these free samples wasn’t enough they even had take home bags for you to grab on the way out. The take home bags had a couple of very tasty gingerbread men pressed in almond shavings. They were even baking some ginger bread men while we were there.

After trying all of the delictable, flavourful treats there was only one more thing to do.

Decide what to buy!

If you missed the open house they may still have some samples left, swing by the bakery at 969 Muskoka Rd (that’s the road by the Tim Hortons on hwy 60) and let them know you read about their bakery and want to get some goodies for Christmas.

Windmill Bakery bakes all of their food with no added preservatives or additives and the wheat is freshly milled on site with their stone mill!

I know Christmas can be a busy time of the year so why not take a load off and put in an order of baked goods from Windmill Bakery? I grabbed an order form on my way out so if anyone is interested just leave a comment below and I could scan and upload the order form. Windmill Bakery has great prices for the quality of tempting treats they bake. If you have been there before I would love to know what your favourite food from the bakery is. I think for me it is either the Apple beignets or the Almond ring.

This was the first time I went to the bakery, but it certainly wont be the last!

I was in Huntsville last week for a few days and never thought to go to the bakery. My loss as their stuff looks amazing. I won’t be north again until Christmas Day so I guess I’ll miss out for awhile, but I’ll keep your suggestions in mind.

Hi, I stumbled by “accident” on your website by just “googling” around and am totally surprized by the awesome job you did with your pictures and comments. Had forgotten all about you coming in and taking pictures. If we ever wanted to do a website we wil give you a call; right now it is not feasible .

The last step up the process is to package the
finished product. A Reverse Switch – A reverse switch is an
extremely handy product feature that may free any jams
that will occur. A meat grinder, also referred to as
a meat processor, is fairly self explanatory but for the masses, it is a kitchen appliance which is useful for grinding, mixing or fine mincing of raw meat.

Jilly – Pollack’s mommy forwarded this to me, I am so glad. I love that litlte guy, but you brought tears to my eyes and goosebumps. You did an incredible job of capturing him. Awesome photos! I bookmarked your site and will pass it along!

Phil , Grest blog , well done site . I have gone from 30 years of guitar to manilodn . Then about 10 years ago to Scruggs style playing . Reaized one day that this style was better suited to ensemble playing ,to thin sounding when playing solo . Five years ago taught myself Clawhammer better suited to for solo playing . I’am now interestedin two finger style banjo after listening to some Roscoe Holcomb’s stuff . Which brings me to your blog about 2- finger style . It seems to me that your are describing two finger index lead , by where the index finger picks out the melody notes and the thumb continues to play the 5th string as a drone . I have been trying 2- finger thumb lead by where the thumb plays all the melody notes and the index finger plays the 1st string as a drone to confuse things more ! I can tell you Phil that there is so very little information out there . These two styles must be ancient and pre-date clawhammer . I have found one website with some tabs and MP3 s . The 2- finger style not only lends itself to solo playing but good for singing also . I thought this style would be very thin sounding with only two fingers but I’am surprised how full sounding it can be . I’am currently working on Prett Polly . Also these two finger style tunings can be very odd . Pretty Polly is tuned GDGA#D . thanks for listening . Bruce

Good point. I hadn’t thought about it quite that way. :)

It’s great to find an expert who can explain things so well
