Mama Achma Bakery is a little Georgian bakery nestled in Manassas. All the fruit cakes, muffins, cookies, pies, pastries, and breads are handmade and housemade, right on the premise, using old-world and family recipes. They even do catering and birthday/holiday/any special occasion customized cakes.
The hubs and I stopped by, and I was super excited in checking this place out, as I just had a good feeling about this place! Ms. Catherine, who owns this bakery with her husband, shared us the items that they had and we just had to get literally one of each!
We tried a Mama’s almond cookie (made with almond flour, this was the perfect amount of sweetness and pretty tasty; the hubs was a total fan!); and purchased: a slice of an apple pie (topped with cinnamon and almonds); a fresh cheese boat (filled with cheese and boiled eggs; the bread was nice and doughy, and filled with cheese and chunks of boiled egg); 2 kinds of achmas (a seven-layered dough with cheese and butter, and a beef version made with pulled beef, sour cream, and spices – I really enjoyed the latter); a Sweet Snail (filled with raisins and walnuts); an edible ‘apple’ rose tart (really pretty!); a ‘Sail’ (filled with chocolate and egg cream); and, a mushroom turnover (that kind of looks like an empanada, these were filled with some sauteed, finely-diced mushrooms; any mushroom lover would enjoy this!).
Since everything is made with love and with all natural ingredients, one does not need to worry about preservatives or artificial flavors – you can really taste how fresh each item is!
To re-heat, it is recommended to use your toaster oven, rather than your oven. I cannot wait to go back and try out their khachapuri and a raspberry basket, as these items also sound pretty amazing! Check this little gem out!
