Our famous Fruitcake
“Charmingly homemade.” — Wall Street Journal
Our fruitcake is famous even in New York!
At Alpine Bakery, we make wholesome fruitcakes using organic ingredients. Ideal for gift-giving or complementing holiday festivities. We ship our Fruitcake around the world.
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.
Fruitcake – $59.50
One of the first breads of the Alpine Bakery.
The special expedition bread is great for your outdoor trips (will last 4-5 weeks without refrigeration) or as a healthy snack.
Sweet but not cake-like. Dense and easy to pack.
Thinly sliced, the bread is excellent with cheese or peanut butter.

You will have a great choice of chocolate, from the naturally flavoured truffles, to the Appreciation bars, the famous hedgehogs or the barks studded with almonds, cranberries and different seeds.
