The team at Three Loaves Bakehouse are always on the go, with new treats for any time of year.  This edition, Andrew Frazer, owner and head baker, passes on a few ideas for bright and tasty Spring goodies to feed the masses.

With Spring approaching we look forward to bringing some new fresh items to the shelves. It is a great time of year in Townsville and there is no better way to celebrate the change of season and second half of the year than with some good food and good weather.

With Melbourne Cup functions already in the works, we have started to see enquiries into catering options both from customers in store as well as wholesale clients.

We pride ourselves on creating new and innovative products offered in store but also by order. Catering options are
endless; from breads, sweets, pastries and a large range of cronuts. We are happy to work with you on your order needs and budget.

With the upcoming wedding ‘season’ we have definitely seen an increase in customers stepping away from traditional cakes and looking for a more ‘rustic’ style. We tend to make a lot of ‘naked’ and ‘semi naked’ cakes which customers can put their own spin on with personalised decorations, cake toppers and flowers. Cakes can be custom ordered, and price is dependent on how many people to be served and preferred flavours.

Our cronuts and other sweet items are always really popular for dessert tables also. We are more than happy to take orders for these items and personalise them where possible.

Another good thing about this time of the year is the preparation for (dare I say)… Christmas items!

We start soaking our fruits months in advance to guarantee depth in flavour. We know it’s early to be talking about it, but you can rest easy knowing we are already preparing for some delicious goodies come December.

It is never too early to start discussing your catering options with us, our preferred means of contact is by email; Our staff will then be in contact to further explore options to suit your needs.

Spring is also an amazing time of year for the markets. With the perfect weather and the market atmosphere in fine form, we love to attend the markets and enjoy the festivities.

You can find us each week at both Willows Markets and Cotter’s Markets (near Flinder’s Square) on Sundays. We take a huge range of bread products as well as our delicious glazed cronuts. We love a chat and a friendly face!

Inspired by authentic age-old processes and using fresh ingredients to create high quality baked goods from scratch. 

Artisan bakers handcrafting doughs and pastry each and every day to ensure depth and flavour are paramount.

Townsville’s very own rustic charm bakehouse.
