Hannah’s Gluten Free Bakery began with a passion to bake delicious, home style, gluten free baked goodies for anyone with sensitivity to gluten and those who have chosen the gluten free lifestyle. We specialize in custom cakes, but we can bake just about anything. From soft croissants and hamburger buns to beautifully decorated custom cakes and cookies…we will satisfy your sweet tooth and help you maintain your healthy lifestyle!
Love first. Bake second.
Why gluten free?
“I believe you might have Celiac Disease.” When I first heard my doctor say those words, my world came to an abrupt halt. Me? A person who has loved baking since I was six and learned to make my grandma’s tea cakes by age seven. Me? A person who loved through my kitchen? You’re telling me that I can no longer cook the things that my family and I have loved for generations? So…I got depressed…like really depressed.
One day, I decided to get off my bum and take some sort of action. I began experimenting with several different flour combinations…then, EUREKA! I found the perfect blend of a little bit of this and a little bit of that. My first goal was to create gluten free cinnamon rolls…SUCCESS! I invited a friend and her gluten free family over to try them. Her words, “Mmmm Mmmm. La…Larissa. You’ve gotta sell these!” Of course, I thought she was just being nice. Even when I tasted my warm, sweet, buttery creation I still couldn’t believe I had done it. (Us women, we can be so critical of ourselves sometimes, can’t we?)
Three months later, I was laying in bed with my six-year-old Hannah Bear (Hannah B, Hannah B Nana, Nana, Nana Bear…she answers to all of these), and I asked her what she wanted to do with her life that would positively impact the world. Her response was, “I wanna start a bakery for people like me.” You see, Hannah (like me) not only has issues with gluten but she’s also allergic to nuts, some fruits, and several other foods.
The words of my sweet little girl coupled with the voice of my friends “You’ve gotta sell these” echoed within and with that, Hannah’s Gluten Free Bakery was born! Now each and every one of you are the reason why we continue to do this! You, my friend, are our MOTIVATION!!!! So thank you! The smile on your faces as we watch you light-up to the realization that you CAN have Red Velvet, Carrot Cake, Salted Caramel Chocolate and all your other fav’s—gluten free! We live for that moment when someone tastes our goodies and ask in all seriousness, “Is this really gluten free?” LOL. Of course it is silly!
