The Disney Parks Blog has provided an update on the BoardWalk Bakery refurbishment. The refurbished bakery is expected to open on Friday April 26, 2013 at 6:30 AM and the facility has undergone several changes.

The interior has been expanded and reconfigured. Per the blog:

“The new location is twice the size of the original bakery, themed to the 1920s Jersey shore,” says John Berko, manager of food & beverage at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn and Villas. Dark wood and colorful tiles and mosaics add a new brightness to the space.

Many favorite options will remain, and several new options have been added including eclairs, cannoli, salted caramel ganache and a peanut butter-banana-candied Nueske’s bacon pie.

They also provided the recipe for the new peanut butter-banana candied Nueske bacon pie:
