Old Fashioned Crumb Cake, Cinnamon Rolls, Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Custom Scratch Cakes, Pies & Tarts and Everything in between! Baked Fresh Daily to order in Beacon, New York. Little House Bakeshop…Happiness. Delivered.
It all started with the Crumb Cake...
Each week, we would sneak away from renovating our tiny new Beacon home to wait in line for the most amazingly perfect, old-fashioned, DELICIOUS Crumb Cake. It was the Crumb Cake we remembered it from our childhoods. As we ate it, we could hear our Brooklyn/Polish/Norwegian grandmothers worry that our moms didn’t feed us enough.
Crumb Cake nirvana lasted a blissful three months. Then... disaster. The Crumb Cakess absconded, leaving not even a recipe behind.
This was NOT OK.
Our priorities and lives have changed over the years.
We escaped our 4-hour-a-day commuting lives and focused on building our Little House Bakeshop. Dawn obsessed over THE Crumb Cake and then traditional pie crusts, French tarts, breads, and pastries. Then came home-made fillings, jams, and frostings. An avid baker since childhood, she still had not found the PERFECT Vanilla cake recipe. Welcome home "Very Vanilla" layer cake! You get the idea...
OUR GOAL? Supply elegant, old-fashioned, home-made desserts from scratch, to order....just like you remember from your favorite neighborhood bakery. After several classes, hours of research, endless recipe testing (thank you friends, neighbors & hospitality colleagues!) we are ready.
Oh, and the Crumb Cake?
We are pretty happy with it. So are our friends, neighbors, taste-testers, and now our customers. But you'll have to decide for yourself. Just let us know if you want us to reserve you one!
Not a problem. We love to customize orders!
When not baking, we spend most of our time hiking with our dogs, tending our vegetable, herb and flower gardens, and building or refurbishing guitars and banjos. Our days start at 4AM. By 5PM we are more than happy to relax on the patio and enjoy the sunset from our spectacular mountain-side view with a glass of wine or two.
We have an eclectic, truly magical life here in the Hudson Valley and hope we have the chance to meet you real soon.
Dawn & John
