Pumpkin spice season has officially arrived. If you’re looking for other ways to indulge beyond the standard latte, there’s no shortage of options in town. From donuts to cookies to cinnamon rolls, the spicy, earthy delights of pumpkin spice can be enjoyed in many ways thanks to some of Toronto’s most creative local bakeries. Be sure to check them out before the season ends.
Here are the best pumpkin baked goods in Toronto.
It’s Bunner’s classic cinnamon roll, spiced with pumpkin. So you get the gooey, doughy, sticky, buttercream-covered goodness of the bakery’s most beloved candy, with a seasonal twist. Choose between a mom or baby size. If cinnamon rolls aren’t your thing, you can get a pumpkin pie cheesecake bar, a pumpkin pie scone or a pumpkin pie cupcake – all vegan, all gluten free.
Bloomer’s artisan donuts are perhaps some of the fluffiest and freshest in town, and their Pumpkin Donut is no exception. It’s covered in pumpkin frosting and pumpkin seeds, with a dollop of cream in the middle to complete the pumpkin pie experience. Like all other items on the menu, it is vegan.
These hearty dark chocolate muffins are plant-based, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free, so you can feel a little less guilty about having chocolate for breakfast. They’re also just one of the pumpkin-infused baked goods options on the fall menu, which also includes pumpkin spice cupcakes, pumpkin spice donuts, and pies and pies. Some items can be made keto, upon request.
Baker/entrepreneur Craig is best known for his chocolate chip cookie mixes that include candy bars, pop pies and other sweet surprises, but pumpkin lovers have surely just found their favorite with this chocolate chip pie offering. the pumpkin. It’s the classic family recipe for chocolate chip cookies, soft, thick and puffy, wrapped around a piece of pumpkin pie. You get the best of both worlds.
If regular pumpkin pie seems a little too basic for your Thanksgiving table, get an upgraded version of the Rolling Pin, where pies are anything but boring. The zesty version of the classic features a graham crust, creamy pumpkin spice filling, salted caramel layer, whipped cream and caramel drizzle, and is topped with roasted candied pecans. Or, you can opt for a Dulce De Leche Meringue Pumpkin Pie, which comes with an all-butter flaky crust, pumpkin spice filling, and a generous layer of dulce de leche topped with a mile of meringue. If you are looking for a showstopper on your table, this is the place to come.
Fall offerings from this award-winning Eglinton Way bakery will inspire you to entertain yourself this season. Choose from a celebration-ready Pumpkin Spiced Caramel Cake, Chocolate Pumpkin Cake, Pumpkin Cake, and Pumpkin Cheesecake, and stock up on other pumpkin spiced treats like pumpkin challah, rugulah, muffins, etc.
