Mr Holmes Bakehouse Singapore brand new menu tasting notes

Mr Holmes Bakehouse Singapore kicks off 2022 with a brand new menu of playful and inventive bakes catered to the local palate.

Starting 2022 with a bang, Mr Holmes Bakehouse – the original cruffin makers from San Francisco, California – is set for another pastry revolution since their highly-anticipated debut last July. After a successful year of delighting fans with playful bakes, the folks are charging ahead with a menu overhaul across all pastry forms, promising inventive flavours both sweet and savoury.

Traditional viennoiserie with a playful spirit

Here's all you need to know about the hand-crafted philosophy that defines Mr Holmes Bakehouse.

01.

FOR THE LOVE OF CARBS & CRAFT

Spearheaded by the skilled hands of one of the pastry chefs from its original San Francisco store, what sets them apart is their obsession with hand-crafted perfection where flavours are constantly reviewed and experimented to express inventiveness and uphold its reputation as a trailblazer in the pastry world.

02.

Signature recipe, hand-rolled with time-perfected techniques

Based off a proprietary recipe which includes a specific blend of three types of flour and premium French butter in precise ratios, each cruffin is fervently hand-rolled via traditional viennoiserie techniques that require months of extensive training for a full grasp.

03.

Cruffins that stand tall among the rest

While most cruffins are typically shorter and denser due to their reliance on muffin trays, the cruffins by Mr Holmes Bakehouse are significantly taller with an irresistible buttery prominence that crisp and flaky on the outside, airy with pockets on the inside when baked.

04.

Brand new menu for another pastry revolution

Now set for another wave of all-butter-everything, fans can look forward to an entirely new rotation of bakes which include Mr Holmes Bakehouse’s first-ever savoury signature cruffin and brioche donut alongside three sweet variants, a twice-baked croissant, danishes, buns, cookies, muffins and sandwiches.

This month's weekend-only special created in collaboration with Park Bench Deli that reintreprets the American classic sandwich with a tart strawberry rhubarb jam and nutty almond butter twist.

$7.50

Sundried Tomato & Bacon Jam

New mainstay that deviates from the usual sweet flavours where bits of gruyere are incorporated while proofing for crispy cheese skirts when baked, while drizzles of balsamic glaze and an alternated fillings of tomato and chive cream cheese and bacon jam pose an undeniable piquancy with every mouthful.

$6.50

Irish Cream Cruffin

Donut piped with Irish breakfast cream for a vanilla filling lifted with gentle hints of coffee and a finishing sprinkle of cacao nibs.

$5.80

Everything Donut

A toothsome ball that's just as promising as named. Comes piped with chive and caper cream cheese, the fried brioche is then glazed with spicy Sriracha honey and a coat of house-made Everything seasoning for a sweet, savoury and slightly spicy bite all at once.

$5.80

$7

Bacon Mac & Cheese Danish

Flaky laminated rectangle centred with red cheddar bechamel, bacon-studded Mac & Cheese, more red cheddar cheese and a sprinkle of herbed croissant crumbs and chives just as you would in the usual Mac & Cheese.

Pistachio Mixed Berry Croissant

Twice-baked croissant as a means to add crunch, Pistachio Mixed Berry Croissant comes draped with nutty pistachio frangipane, piped and drizzled with mixed berry jam cooked from strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and raspberries for a jammy contrast. Finished with brushes of rum syrup for a slightly boozy whiff.

$13

Tuna Sandwich

Toasted homemade rye sourdough, generously slathered with a tuna salad that tosses chopped kale, pickles, onion, in a lime mustard and white truffle fragranced mayonnaise. Simple, different and oh-so-hearty.
