We're talking about Mother Dough! The bakery's name actually refers to a fermentation starter used in bread making. Its baker, Naadhira actually spent 4 years in New York City learning how to perfect the art of bread making.

Previously only at pop-up events, Mother Dough opened its permanent shop in May 2018 and has been plying us all with mouth-watering pastries ever since. Aren't we glad that happened?!? With a selection of croissants, baguettes, quiche and cakes, Mother Dough will make any pastry lover's dream come true.

One of their signature pastries has to be their Almond Croissant (SGD4.80). Baked to perfection with a delicious almond filling topped with slivered almonds and powdered sugar, you'll definitely want a bite of this yummy treat. If you're a chocolate lover, you can indulge in offerings such as their Sourdough Chocolate  (SGD4.80) or a Brownie slice (SGD5.50) ?

While it might be easy to focus on their delicious sweet treats, don't forget to taste their savoury bakes too! Some popular options include their quiches as well as their savoury buns with fillings such as turkey ham or chicken sausage with gouda or spicy mushrooms. Mother Dough rotates their bakes frequently, so you can look forward to checking out the different baked goods they have in-store every time you pop in!

#HHWT Tip: We highly recommend that you come early to get the best choice of all the baked goods available - if you drop by close to their closing time, there's a chance they might have run out on several of their items (they go fast!).

The bakery also has specials over the weekends, including some hot food like pizza and toasties. Their current weekend special for November 2019  is a whole wheat sourdough flatbread featuring toppings including beef pepperoni, tomato brown butter sauce, cheese and honey  ?Follow their Instagram to get updates on their specials and also other current bakes.

And if you're popping in the store, don't forget to pick up a loaf of bread to bring home! Their popular wholewheat sourdough loaves come out at 12pm on weekdays, and 11am on weekends.

Mother Dough serves coffee too which would be the perfect pairing with your pastries. Their store is small, so it might be hard to get seats if you're in a big group, but if you visit during a quiet period or want to catch up over coffee and cake with a friend, it's a perfectly cosy space to do so. When all else fails, you can just get your delicious pastries to go! Also, did you know you can also order baked goods from them online?

So, if you're looking for some good pastries, cakes or bread make sure to head over to Mother Dough for that perfect baked treat ?
