Vancouver, BC | An Easter tradition, Beaucoup Bakery & Café will be baking brioche hot cross buns for a limited time beginning March 23. Some historical legends imply that hot cross buns stored on Good Friday will stay fresh throughout the year. These tasty treats from Beaucoup Bakery won’t last long enough for anyone to find out. Made with Beaucoup’s buttery brioche recipe, combined with candied lemon and orange peel sourced from France, currants and a pinch of spice, these buns are intended to be enjoyed hot and fresh.
Sold individually, Beaucoup’s brioche hot cross buns are priced at $2.75 and will be stocked daily from March 23 until April 6. Those wanting to place bigger orders are encouraged to call ahead at 604-732-4222 to ensure availability.
Jackie Ellis, baker and owner
Beaucoup Bakery & Café opened its doors in December 2012, offering French-inspired pastries and childhood favourites with some smart, unique twists. The reason for opening Beaucoup Bakery was simple, to leave the world a happier place, even if through something as simple as a cookie. The company’s priority is to put care and pride into everything it does, from the ingredients used and the little details that go into the baking, through to the way the company treats valued customers and friends.
“At Beaucoup Bakery, we want to share amazing food, prepared with passion,” says owner and baker Jackie Ellis. “The biggest compliment we can receive is seeing someone’s eyes roll back and hear them say that it’s the best thing they’ve ever tasted! We strive to make people love food as much as we do!”
Beaucoup Bakery offers sweet pastries, cakes, seasonal tarts, cookies and viennoiserie, along with sandwiches made in-house—all of which can be enjoyed “to go” or in the charming 16-seat café. The café also includes a small retail area featuring hand-picked food and lifestyle items that match Beaucoup’s commitment to quality: coffee from Vancouver roaster 49th Parallel, Mellifera Bees honey, Lovely Home Idea linens, Black & Blum water bottles and Aquaovo thermoses.
“The opening of Ellis’s South Granville bakery was delayed and then delayed again. And again. The resulting wait created a near-unmeetable expectation upon opening. Which, with the help of her perfect croissants and other transformative pastries, Ellis has been able to exceed.”
