Ten Popular Terms to Savor About Bakeries

We’ve all eaten a slice of birthday cake or taken a bite out of a delicious cookie. While bakeries are not as common as they used to be, the ones that are still around produce some outstanding, independently-made baked goods worth taking a whiff of. But even the biggest dessert fan might not know everything on the shelves, so check out these ten terms you’ll come across next time you visit a bakery.

  • Gluten – A protein naturally found in goods processed from wheat, barley, or rye sources. When mixed within baked goods, gluten gives the recipe a chewy texture and is commonly used as an additive to foods that do not contain protein.
  • Meringue – A dessert made from whipped egg whites and sugar, mixed in with fruit to give it an added sweet flavor.
  • Pirog – A type of Ukranian pie that features a puff-type pastry filled with meat and vegetables (savory) or fruit (sweet), usually served with a side of broth.
  • Pastry – A type of baked good derived from a doughy mixture it resembles before baking. Pastries are flaky due to their higher fat content, and popular recipes include cakes, tarts, and biscuits.
  • Cake shop – A type of bakery whose menu specializes in cakes and cupcakes. These shops usually cater to special occasions like birthdays and weddings.
  • Coffeehouse – A small restaurant that sells coffee and tea on its menu as well as small baked goods like cookies and biscuits.
  • Fondant – Cake-making material that is derived from sugar and water that has been cooked to a soft stage where it is malleable enough to mold into any shape. Fondant is used to make elaborate cake designs of practically anything for special occasions
  • Custard – A dessert made from mixed yolk with either milk or cream. It varies in thickness, and can be served as a filling or by itself mixed with flavors such as vanilla and chocolate.
  • Pastry bag – A cone-shaped bag with a nozzle at the bottom corner that is used for birthday cake decoration, filling donuts with jelly, and add shaped icing to dishes.
  • Empanada – A small doughy pastry originating from Europe and Latin America. It is usually filled with meats or cheeses, but can also contain vegetables and fruit.

    Once fire and heat were discovered baked goods could be produced by people. A good bread recipe is truly a gem and mom's homemade cake on the menu is the best part of the meal. No birthday party is complete without birthday cake and we visit our favorite restaurant just to get that special dessert on the menu. There are many occasions for baked goods to appear in any given recipe. For example what is a holiday or wedding without a display of pastries or the beautiful wedding cake? You may frequent cafés for a nice cup of Joe and that decadent gourmet sweet treat. A breakfast morning may not be complete with a fresh blueberry muffin or donut. Do you fancy French, German or Italian desserts? Find your local pastry shop and enjoy. Gluten-free baked goods may not sound tasty but there are a variety of recipes and shops that specialize in gluten-free baking that are good to the last bite. Pie is a never-ending feast with all the fruits and fillings made available to incorporate into these crusty delights. Cookie comes from the Dutch word koekje, meaning small cake. These small cakes are delicious in a batch with your choice of chocolate chips, nuts, raisins or many more options. Even vegan diets institute baking methods for many dishes that will make meat seem less appealing to anyone. Local bakers and bakeries may create your favorite baked goodies. Many cities have franchised pastry shops for general baked goods like cakes, cookies and pies. There are many options for getting your just desserts.
