Amish Baked Goods from Reading Terminal’s Beiler Bakery
In the Northwest corner of Reading Terminal Market, Beiler’s Bakery serves up an assortment of no–fuss, no–muss, unbelievably delicious baked goods that are made on–site every morning. This is the real Pennsylvania Dutch and simplicity reigns. Relax, the Amish don’t count calories and neither should you. Remember: they’re only open Wednesday–Saturday.
The Sticky Bun
What’s classic: Straight from the oven to your mouth, these cinnamon spiced rolls are still warm when you buy one. Rich, sweet dough is topped with a dark cinnamon–sugar glaze, making for a stickiness that doesn’t dissapoint. ($1.95)
Change–up: Nut Sticky Bun –– same as the classic but topped with raw, chopped walnuts. The nuts add texture and tart flavor which balance the sweetness of the bun. ($1.95)
The Deep Fried Delight
What’s classic: Apple Fritter –– the crisp first bite transforms and unpacks flavor as it melts in your mouth. Large chunks of spiced apple are nestled in a light and fluffy batter, all dipped in a perfectly sweet glaze. ($1.55)
Change–up: There isn’t one. Stick with the original.
The Whoopie Pie
What’s classic: Two CD–sized rich, dark chocolate cookies are the bread of this sandwich. The filling: nothing but whipped cream and as legit as the stuff from the can. ($2.50)
Change–up: Ditch the cocoa for airy, pumpkin–gingerbread cookies — an unexpected twist on this schoolyard classic. ($2.50)
