Gluten-Free

As a gluten-free person, you can still play with us.  We always do sugar-free, but we can make your two layer 6″ and 8″ cakes to any flavor you want.  We do ask that you give us 48 hours notice so we can make it perfect for you.  Ken, our decorator, will make it look extra special for you and personalize it if you want.  We also do cupcakes, cookies, brownies, cheesecakes, and wedding cakes.  Unlike our regular three layer cakes, we make the Gluten-Free cakes in two layers as the flour has more calories and we want you to enjoy your cake without too added calories.

GF NEW YORK STYLE CHEESE CAKE with raspberry on top. None of our cheesecakes have a crust. You get a full serving of the creamest, smoothest cheesecake and nothing more. Ours are so yummy and devine.

CHEESECAKE:  We have always had sugar-free & gluten-free cheesecakes in a variety of flavors both in the 6″ size and 9″ size. A list of our variety is:

New York (plain, but can have toppings added like caramel, raspberry, and chocolate.

Raspberry Swirl – can add more raspberry for topping

Chocolate Swirl – can add more chocolate for topping

Pumpkin (seasonal)

Personal Cheesecakes $3.00 each Raspberry & Chocolate Swirl, & New York (I see one with caramel poured on top).

Right now we are offering individual servings of the cheesecake in New York (plain), raspberry, and chocolate swirl. They are selling for $3.00 each.

These little gems are extremely popular and often times we run out (certainly not on purpose).  Please let us know your choices and we will try to have them ready on pre-orders with 48 hours’ notice.

 

 

We have three different toppings for the Gluten-Free brownie: German chocolate, Walnut, and Chocolate Chip. We just keep getting better and better.  One brownie is 292 cal.   11g. carbs   2g. fiber     6g. protein          I know we are showing one with peanut butter chips, but we can no longer get them in Sugar-Free.

This is a “dressed up” brownie.  We took two and stacked with whipped cream in the middle and cherries on top. Really good if slightly warmed with Dryers no-sugar added vanilla ice cream on top.  I actually ate this delight after we made it.  It was soooo good!  In my job I can eat what bugs me and this was bugging me sitting there all by itself with no one to enjoy it.

   Haystack cookie.  1 cookie is   57 cal.   5g carb   1 protein  1 point per cookie

The haystack cookie is made with chocolate, oats, and dry coconut.  These are like the no-bake cookie we made as children.  Now there is a memory that warms the heart.

  1. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one today..

    • Tina from City Beautiful Design created the theme and banner for me. She created the different headings. I did all the writing, picture taking & placement within the website. I thank you for your kind words. Nanette

  2. You have a lot of gluten free items listed here. Today was my first trip to your store and the only gluten free item I found was a whole cheesecake. I asked about the other items and was told cheesecake is the only gluten free item you sell as you are primarily a sugar-free facility. I’m glad to see a sugar-free bakery, especially one that uses natural sweetners as opposed to artificial, thanks! As a gluten-free and sugar-free person I’d love to see more items made gluten-free too!

    • I am so sorry that you were not shown the other items we have on the shelf. I will have to remind our staff to direct inquiries to the other items. It is the only dessert we have except the pear upside down cake (has sugar.) We have bread, dressings, jam, syrups, chicken tenders, pizza crust, etc. You have looked at the website to see what we have. I hope your next visit is more satisfying. We are working on more gluten free items. Our oatmeal cookies are considered gluten free as oatmeal is not considered a gluten. We also have developed a fabulous peanut butter cookie that is gluten free. I have not worked the nutritional values yet so it probably wasn’t out. Thanks so much for writing and your interest. Nanette

  3. I just want to mention I am just all new to blogging and seriously savored this web-site. Most likely I’m planning to bookmark your blog post . You definitely come with outstanding articles and reviews. Kudos for sharing your web page.

    • Thank you. I’m new to doing a website and I love how people are responding to it. I write like I talk except you can’t see my hands moving. Maybe that’s a good thing. Keep checking back. I am always putting in new pictures and new goodies. Our opera cake, gluten-free items, bread pudding, and custard pie – all these have a coming out party soon. We have them – I just need to show them off. Thanks for writing. Nanette

    • Actually, we have just started making them. They are excellent, but the crust is such a pain to work with they cost a little bit more than our usual. We do them on request.

    • We make a chocolate and orange cake that can be put into a loaf pan, but an actual GF lemon pound cake…No. Thanks for asking.

      Nanette

    • Hi Jessica: Why, YES WE DO and it is so good. It’s a special order at no extra cost and it is DELICIOUS! Give us a call and order one. We prefer 48 hours notice as we have to buy the sweet potatoes and cook them up. Thanks for asking.

  4. ——items to satisfy multiple(organic/lactose-free/protien/etc) needs-
    It would be nice if you had a few items that would satisfy multiple dietary restrictions all in one item and attract customers from different diet groups. Its nice that you have a store that deals with low sugar, but the issues i have is the following:
    -lactose free
    -organic products
    -equal protein to carb ratio, if possible. I know that some imbalanced recipes cause me to crave but if it is balenced then i feel full and satisfied. I know in europe they combine some protien items with certain bread or pastry products. i will try to think of what they are when i remeber the details.
    -sugar alcohols: just a footnote for me that some sugar alcohols cause cravings the same as sugar, but stevia and xylitol seem fine to me.

    Just wanted to share my opinions, thanks for reading.
    Could you keep me posted if this is implemented.

    • Please give us a call at 503.657.4547 and let us see what we can do to help you. We realize that there a lot of health concerns out there and we can’t address them all, but we do make an effort for special orders. If we can’t do it we will tell you.

      Thanks so much for writing with your helpful suggestions. Nanette

    • Hi Ann. We do our best to not use anything with sugar-alcohol. We use a Stevia-Xylitol blend now that Thom King (who makes the steviva we have used for years) has blended and it is excellent. The best of two worlds. I really haven’t studied the protein to carb ratio. Our raw products are very expensive and going organic adds more cost that we can sustain (such as fruit and berries). As for lactose free; taking the sugar out was a huge pain in our necks and we do depend on some dairy products to help with moisture content when we have removed so much of the oil too. We have tried to find the perfect balance, but alas we don’t always make it.

      Thanks for writing. I hope you can find a bakery that will provide you with what you need. It’s tough for you.

    • Hi Heidi – we buy our gluten-free flour from Bob’s Red Mill in Milwaukie, Oregon. It is made with garbanzo bean flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, white sorghum flour, and fava bean flour. Thanks for asking. Sorry it took me so long to answer you, but I forget that I get messages through the website and I don’t make the time to go check. My bad, but I promise to get better.

      Nanette

  6. Just a quick note in reference to your comment about oats being gluten free. This may be something you already know, but you’re correct that they are naturally gluten free; however, you must be sure they are from a facility that does not produce other items with wheat, or they risk cross contamination, and then would no longer be gluten free.

    Bravo for all the sugar free and gluten free items you’re producing. Looks delicious!

    • Thank you Judy for writing. We purchase our oats from Bob’s Red Mill and they have two plants – one for regular milling and a gluten-free plant. There is no cross contamination. We strive very hard to do our best to provide safe, no aftertaste bakery items for our customers to enjoy.

      Nanette and Staff

    • Judy, you are very correct. We buy all of our grains from Bob’s Red Mill. We get the ones from the Gluten-Free production plant. When we bake here we are very careful not to have any cross contamination.

  7. Just wondered if you were familiar with the Trim Healthy Mama plan? It’s mostly sugar free and gluten free. Looks like some of your items might be on plan. You are definately using one of the sugars they recommend

  8. I heard you on True Talk 800 “Difference Makers” and am extremely impressed! I listened to the interview three times with delight!
    All your careful research is truly appreciated! My adult twin daughters and I must be gluten free; we also pretty much avoid lactose & most sugars. (Also “Organic” when possible.)
    I must admit that, until I heard you on the radio, I had sworn off even coming in to your bakery; this due to the fact that most “sugar free” establishments use artificial “sweeteners” that are more detrimental to one’s health than beneficial.
    Now I am so excited and anticipate visiting your store next time we come to town from our home on The Coast!
    We very much appreciate your efforts in lowering the fat, carb & calorie content AND your meticulous attention to flavor & detail! Being a perfectionist pays off!!

    • Good Morning Carolyn:

      I finally found some time to get into the website and work on it and found your lovely message. I am so sorry that I did not find it earlier and respond. Thank you so much for your lovely comments and support of our efforts. I wasn’t sure how many listeners I would reach that day with Mike, but I did reach you not only once, but three times. You have touched my heart. I have made a promise to myself that I would do whatever is necessary (even outside my comfort zone) to get the word out about our bakery for one year. That’s advertising, talk shows, TV, events. Thank you for letting me know that I encouraged you to come see us. We are always trying to make things GF, but taking the sugar out does have it’s own set of problems. We will work harder. Thank you for writing. I so appreciate your comments and the time you took to do so.

      God’s blessings – Nanette
