Best known for their very Australian lamingtons, Kytons Bakery has branched out, baking a product that originates from the other side of the world – Belgian Waffles – and launching a new retail pack at the Royal Adelaide Show.
“Kytons bought the La Waffle business just over 12 months ago, but at the time the business was just servicing the café side of the market with boxes of 30 waffles” said Kytons owner Sharon Sutton.
The Kytons team have spent the last 12 months perfecting their waffle-making skills and developing the new four-pack.
The Belgian recipe behind the product differs from other waffles currently in the market. It uses pearl sugar, little nuggets of sugar mixed into the dough that, when baked, “caramelise to add a golden, crunchy texture to the outside of the waffle and a fabulous aroma to your kitchen,” says Sharon.
Kytons chose the Royal Adelaide Show to launch the new retail format for La Waffle because of the opportunity to introduce thousands of show visitors to the product and demonstrate how it can be used at home.
La Waffles are prebaked, so they are easily reheated in a domestic toaster in just a few minutes and even though they are sweet, they can be used with either sweet or savoury toppings.
“Everything from salty bacon to fresh berries goes with waffles. We think they taste even better when served with other South Australian products– Beerenberg Chocolate Sauce, Golden North Ice Cream or La Casa Vanilla Bean Double Cream are some of the products we’ve tried so far,” Sharon said.
This year marks the tenth year the company has participated in the Taste SA pavilion at the Show. Also on the stand are Kytons famous lamingtons and their Christmas Pudding, which has won first prize at the Royal Show for the last two years.
The La Waffle four pack has been launched into selected Foodland stores to coincide with the Royal Adelaide Show and will also be available from many other Kyton stockists around Adelaide as well as from the Kytons retail outlet at Edwardstown.
