Raisin Bread

Baguio Country Clubs's trademark raisin bread first originated from an old home recipe of then manager of the Baguio Country Club some 51-52 years ago, Kate Reed. Half century old “secret” coffee partner of the BCC family.

Then BCC's now famous raisin bread first made its appearance in the Club's even more famous Verandah – Long-time BCC member, Soccorro Merril, said “merienda” time at the BCC in those days just had a few members on the Verandah having coffee, but often wishing there was something to eat with their coffee. “To address the wishful thinking, Kate Reed one day presented them a raisin loaf, made from an old day family recipe. It made everyone's day, and went on to become a staple for the coffee-drinking Verandah set”.

And so, “from a merienda staple of old, it evolved through the decades into the trademark loaf most anyone who visits the BCC has to have. Who would ever have imagined, more than 50 years ago, that the simple merienda loaf would one day be a part of the must-have, must-taste “Raisin bread” not found elsewhere.

In 1993, the Pastry Shop was built with a sitting capacity of 20 people and was renovated in July 2006.

It was inaugurated last November 16, 2006 and was named the “Raisin Bread Shop”.
The Raisin Bread Shop now offers a wide variety of homemade cakes and pastries.

Raisin Bread Shop's Operational Hours: 7:00AM - 10:00PM DAILY
