“Charmingly homemade.” — Wall Street Journal
At Alpine Bakery, we make wholesome fruitcakes using organic ingredients. Choose either our dark fruitcake with twice as much fruit as batter, or try our light fruitcake. Ideal for gift-giving or complementing holiday festivities.
For lovers of the outdoors, wrapped slices of fruitcake in your backpack are a welcome treat and/or survival food because they keep well and are rich in nutrition. Our fruitcake has been used on many adventures, including a Geological Survey of Canada scientific expedition to Mount Logan, Canada’s tallest peak, as well as RCMP and dogsledding expeditions.
The majority of commercial fruitcake producers use ready-made mixes of cut fruit that come from industrial farms along with a variety of chemical preservatives. At Alpine Bakery, we hand process chemical-free organic dried fruits. While this process is time-consuming and labour-intensive, the end result is a much healthier and higher quality product, evident in the cake’s moisture and flavour.
Light Fruitcake – $59.50
Dark Fruitcake – $59.50
One of the first breads of the Alpine Bakery, the special expedition bread is great for trips (will last 4-5 weeks without refrigeration) or as a healthy snack for children. Sweet but not cake-like. Dense and easy to pack. Thinly sliced, the bread is excellent with cheese or peanut butter.
Made with organic, fair-trade, 70% dark chocolate. Studded with almonds and cranberries.
