Breadtop - King William Street, Adelaide

The opening of the original Adelaide location was the subject of my very first post on The Lonely Plate back in April 2010. I'm pleased to write that Adelaide's second Breadtop location opened this week on King William Street at the entrance to Southern Cross.

new Breadtop location in Adelaide!

Both times I've visited the new store, it was full of students and business people taking advantage of its location near Rundle Mall. It's more accessible than the market store and seemed to have a better selection of baked goods.

Second Adelaide location!

I had walked by the old Beard Papa shop many times to check the progress of the construction. I have to say this location looks fantastic. It's also very dangerous that it's in walking distance from where I work. Moderation, Nat. Moderation!

The chefs and ovens are behind the tables and chairs

Not a huge amount of seating at this location, but there are some extra chairs and tables just outside the doors as you walk into Southern Cross.

Hopefully the King William location won't be the last to be added in Adelaide. It's really handy to have these reasonably priced buttery baked goods close by.

Recipe: Banana Bread

This classic recipe is the perfect way to use up those over-ripe bananas. For fluffy banana bread goodness:

1 cup sugar
1 tsp bicarb soda (baking soda)
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs, beaten
3 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Grease loaf pan or cake pan with butter, margarine, or canola spray. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Pour in mashed banana, oil, beaten eggs, milk, vanilla, and chopped nuts (optional). Mix well with wooden spoon. Bake for 40-45 mins. Bread is cooked when a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Enjoy!
