Baker Chat. Made-from-scratch Cheesecake, Muffins and More

Much as we love our organic coffee and specialty drinks at Trees Organic Coffee House, we love our baking just as much. Our in-house bakery is a busy place, baking everything from our made-from-scratch top-rated cheesecake to our yummy breakfast muffins, scones and other treats. We caught up this week with our baker Magdalena and talked about some of her favorite treats and where she finds her inspiration.

Talking about Delicious desserts baked from scratch in our downtown Vancouver cafe

What’s your favorite muffin?

“It’s so hard for me to choose. Let’s see. My favorite would probably have to be the cranberry orange pecan. Someone actually told me last week that it tastes like pancakes (laughs). It tastes like fresh pancakes. I have to agree. It’s really soft and buttery and delicious. It’s not too sweet. It’s quite a treat.”

What makes the cheesecake so special here?

“We do make our cheesecakes from scratch. All real ingredients going into it from local suppliers… The most special thing about our cheesecake is it’s not as hard as your typical cheesecake. It’s definitely a mousse-y kind of cheesecake. It’s lighter than the old world cheesecake. It’s not super-sweet. You still get the flavor, but it’s not over the top sweet, so you can still taste the cream cheese in there. We actually offer nine different kinds of cheesecake, so no matter what kind of flavor you like, you’ll find something you like here.”

Why Mango cheesecake is awesome. A refreshing slice baked with fresh ingredients and love

“The wonderful thing about mango is that it has such a strong flavor. It really comes out. You don’t have to add anything to it. We don’t put artificial stuff into any of our cheesecakes.”

Vegan dessert options? Our Vancouver cafe’s got ’em

“Yes, there are options for vegans. We’ve got our vegan power bar, which is made with oats and banana, blueberry and seeds… It fills you up, tastes great and is very healthy. We also have our power cookie, if you want something sweeter but not quite as heavy.”
