Pik A Pie Bakery has been named Australia’s Best Kitchener Bun for the second year in a row at the Baking Association of Australia (BAA) South Australian Baking Show.

Adelaide Hills Bakery has been making award-winning pastries since 1999, and with two consecutive years of winning, they’ve clearly perfected their version of the classic South Australian dessert.

“Unfortunately we didn’t win Best Sausage Roll, but we did WON BEST KITCHENER BUN for the 2nd year in a row. So we’re pretty stoked about that,” Pik A Pie shared in a Facebook post.

Born from the rich German heritage and traditions embedded throughout the state, the Kitchener Bun is a true delight. Originally called the Berliner, the Kitchener Bun is made from yeast dough and resembles a doughnut, but without the hole. The ultimate addition to any afternoon tea or morning coffee, this sweet treat is filled with fresh cream and jam and rolled in sugar.

This year’s South Australian Baking Show & Australia’s Best Sausage Roll competition was held earlier this month at the Marion Hotel. 49 bakeries entered and 274 products were judged on the day.

During the Cocktail Awards Evening, official trophies were presented including the Champion Loaf of the Show Trophy, Champion Cake Pastry of Show, the Official Winner of the 2024 Australias Best Sausage Roll and of course the SA’s Best Kitchener Bun, awarded to Pik A Pie Bakery.

Pik A Pie now has two locations, Meadows in the Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. In addition to their delicious sandwiches, you can also enjoy winter warmers such as pies and sausage rolls, delicious donut creations, coffee and all your favourite bakery treats.
