Alexander’s Bakery is based in Rockdale, and they set up a stall at the hugely popular Peakhurst Foodies Markets.
I’ve had their unique jam doughnut before, and I have been keen to try their Macedonian sweet called tulumbi, sometimes called tulumba. I’m not sure if the difference in spelling is singular v plural, Macedonian v Turkish, or something totally different. As I type this, my Auto Spelling Correct is changing the last letter from an ‘i’ to an ‘a’, and I have to keep changing it back.
The tulumbi (did it again) is a type of doughnut, being a deep-fried doughy batter. It looks like a fat churro with its grooves along the side.
It’s crispy on the outside, and very airy on the inside.
The best part is that it’s dripping in a sweet syrup.
The syrup, which is runnier than honey, seeps right through, which makes eating the tulumbi a bit messy, but thoroughly enjoyable.
I’ve never had a tulumbi before, and I can recommend trying one.
The website for Alexander’s seems to be non-existent. Looks like they only have a Facebook page these days.
