Granny Logan's Shortbread

Yes, there was a real Granny Logan and, yes, Yummy Stuff's yummy Granny Logan shortbread is made from her tradional Scottish recipe. Granny Logan was as Scottish as they come. Her maiden name was Robertson and she lived in Edinburgh. Grandpa Logan was famous for his rendition of Hail Caledonia!

As you may have guessed by now, Granny Logan was Morag's grandmother. Did you know that the name Morag is Gaelic?

Of course, we're keeping Granny Logan's recipe as secret as the recipe for Coca-Cola (we're convinced it's equally valuable). It's known only to Morag and her mother (who has a Scottish accent to prove her credentials).

What we can guarantee is that the mixture is entirely kneaded by hand and produced in small batches. A rare treat indeed!

Come and pick some up -- $6 for a package of six, or $1.25 for a single bar from the cookie jar.

Dad's Granola

Morag's dad is a journalist. While he's pretty good at writing, he's less skilled at most things around the house. Even changing light bulbs pose a bit of a challenge for him.

But he is quite handy around the kitchen. Dad's granola is especially yummy. The original recipe came from the internet, but he has refined it over the years with the addition of such ingredients as various dried fruits, pumpkin seeds and golden flaxseed (one of nature's healthiest foods). He uses no sugar, apart from honey or maple syrup. And it bakes for over two hours, giving it an intense flavour that you'll find in few other breakfast cereals (certainly not those bought in the supermarket).

Morag thinks her dad's future may lie in granola rather than journalism, so she asked him to put his famous recipe to work for Yummy Stuff. It's now available at the store at a cost of $8 per jar. Try one -- you're sure to come back for more.

New Blog, New Store!

Thanks for reading the Yummy Stuff Blog! We hope you will check in from time to time for updates on what is happening in the bakery. This is where we will post upcoming events, specials, seasonal offerings, ideas, and new yummy things that we have been baking. We welcome you to add comments and hope that you find the blog a useful way of staying in touch. We won't be checking the blog daily, so please ensure that any orders or inquiries are done by email to or by calling the store at 416-531-9732.

Yummy Stuff will soon be opening a retail bakery at the end of June! Thanks to our loyal and wonderful customers, we have decided to make the move to a storefront in Parkdale. We are very excited to be able to offer an assortment of Yummy favorites that you can see in our pastry case and take home with you moments later. We will also offer a selection of celebration cakes that can be ordered in advance and customized according to your wishes.

The coming weeks will be busy ones as we work to make the Yummy Stuff store a reality. We are looking forward to seeing you in the store once we open, and want to ensure that you keep coming back for more!
