Our amazing bread is baked fresh by the Gold Coast Bakery.
Today they are very proud of the fact that Gold Coast Bakeries has remained an independent family-owned business and intend, with the help of their family, to keep it that way for many years to come.
Bread baking is part science, part art.
It is the product of a mixture of flour, water, salt, yeast and other ingredients, mixed together to form a dough. Our dough is mixed using either high-speed mechanical dough mixers, or spiral mixers, which develop the protein (gluten) contained in the flour, to form an extensible dough structure that will capture the carbon dioxide produced by the yeast, to enable the dough to rise.
After mixing the dough is divided into dough pieces of the required weight. It is then allowed to rest for approx. 10 minutes before being moulded into the required shape. The dough is then placed into a baking tin, or on a baking tray, where it is then put into a temperature and humidity controlled proofer where the dough rises for about one hour before being baked, cooled, spiced and/or packaged.
