Alma Bakery and Sweet Shoppe - Alma, Kansas

The first time that we visited Alma Bakery and Sweet Shoppe in Alma, Kansas, it shared an 1886 native stone building that had formerly housed the Wabaunsee County Bank, a general store and a barber shop. The old bank vault provided storage.

As soon as I walked through the door, I knew I was going to like Alma Bakery. It smelled wonderful! 

The owner, Jeanette Rohleder-Supernaw and her son were friendly and when Jeanette saw me taking a photograph, invited me into the back to take a picture of the vault left over from the days that the building housed the Bank of Wabaunsee County.

Since that time, Alma Bakery has moved up the adjacent street to a newer building with much more space.

Jeanette purchased the Alma Bakery & Sweet Shoppe in 2000 and uses recipes which were handed down by her German Grandmother. The bakery produces a wide variety of cookies, breads, pies, fudge and sweets, but doesn't make everything every day. Call ahead to request your favorites. My favorite is the peanut butter cookies.

They bake fresh bierocks once a week and have the frozen ones available on other days. A bierock is a German pastry baked with a savory beef, onion, and cabbage filling. It sounds a lot like a pastie, but the flavor and texture are quite different. Alma Bakery's bierocks are black peppery and quite good.
