Plant City’s Grit Rambusch reaches quarterfinals for The Greatest Baker
Grit Rambusch, owner of Plant City bakery Crumbles and Cream Kaffeehaus, has reached the quarterfinals for The Greatest Baker.
The Greatest Baker is an online, public voting competition hosted by celebrity bakers Alice Fervonia and Sophie Faldo, both finalists from past seasons of the Great British Bake Off. The winner will take home the title, $10,000 in prize money and a two-page feature in “Bake from Scratch” Magazine.
Baking professionally since 1991, Rambusch’s signature bake is prasselkuchen, a buttery puff pastry, a thin layer of homemade cranberry fruit preserve spread, topped with crunchy but tender ‘melt-in-your mouth’ vanilla butter crumbles, drizzled with a freshly squeezed lemon juice glaze after baking. The perfect combination of soft and crunchy and sweet and tart.

One free vote can be cast every 24 hours throughout this round of voting, running through Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. For more information about Crumbles and Cream Kaffeehaus, visit www.crumblesandcream.com.
