There’s no shortage of recommendations for Hominy Bakery on a visit to Katoomba on the internet.
Located on the main road in Katoomba, its shelves are filled with baked goods. (On a side note, Katoomba is still very much into using plastic strip doors, which I am not fond of especially when my hands are full.)
They have organic sourdough or yeasted bread on their shelves as well as cakes and pastries in their cabinets to satisfy sweet tooths like D and me.
First up is the Little Apple Pie ($2.95).
The apple pie has a crispy sugar crust on the top that goes so well with the sweet soft apples inside.
This is the Pear Danish ($2.60) with a cube of baked pear but crispy and flaky pastry.
This is the Pear & Apple Cake ($3.90). This was a tad too dense and sweet with cubes of pear and apple and raisins.
And finally, the Apple & Rhubarb Turnover ($3.55).
This apple turnover has the same sugared top to the pastry that gives a satisfying crunch to the soft innards. The rhubarb brings a pleasant tartness to the sweet apple.
The Apple & Rhubarb Turnover and the Little Apple Pie were both winners that we’d return for if we were in the area. And so I join the crowd recommending this bakery!
Hominy Bakery is at 185 Katoomba St, Katoomba NSW 2780.
