About Douze Bakery
At Douze Bakery, we believe everyone deserves great dessert, made with care and flair. Everything we bake is available in three variations: conventional vegetarian, vegan, AND gluten-free vegan.
We also offer special orders (for individuals and businesses) 7 days a week. Email us at email@example.com to request a special order.
Gluten-free Vegan Info
Everything we bake is available in three variations: conventional, vegan and gluten-free vegan. We are not a certified gluten-free facility because we bake conventional and gluten-free vegan items in the same kitchen (at different times, on clean and sanitized equipment), in the same oven.
If you have celiac disease or a severe allergy to wheat, egg or milk, our gluten-free vegan items MAY not be suitable for you due to potential cross contamination. We are happy to discuss this in detail by email before you place an order (firstname.lastname@example.org) to ensure you feel safe ordering our products.
If you are gluten intolerant, or are just avoiding gluten and animal products, then our gluten-free vegan items are suitable for you.
All of our baked goods are made with Redpath brand sugar or organic raw cane sugar which are vegan-friendly. Our gluten-free vegan items are made with gluten-free flours and ingredients and exclude eggs and dairy products. We use vegan-friendly and gluten-free gel food colouring in items that require it. The chocolate chips we use are vegan certified. The 55% cacao dark chocolate pastilles we use in our gluten-free vegan items are made in Belgium and vegan.
We do not ship or deliver orders. We are a contactless bakery. To obtain your order we offer contactless PORCH PICKUP (FREE) at 133 Grange Street, Stratford, ON N5A 3P9.
Day and time of pickup is part of your order options.
We offer multiple payment options at checkout in our online shop. Not satisfied by the options? Please email us to discuss as we can accept Interac e-transfers on request.
Get to know Danielle of Douze Bakery
Douze Bakery is the passion project of our founder, Danielle Dewar. Douze is French for 12, like a dozen cookies, and is Danielle's long time nickname. A professionally trained baker, she used to work as a pastry person at Clafouti Patisserie, a now closed but once celebrated bake shop in Toronto, and also ran her own healthy cookie and pie business which served Toronto farmers markets, cafes and yoga studios. Danielle also created an award-winning plant based gluten free food blog called Baking Backwards. Her recipes have been featured in online and print publications including Glamour Magazine, Gluten Free Canada and One Green Planet. She left the baking world to focus on her career in marketing but has always wanted to reopen her own shop. Ready to embrace baking professionally again, Danielle runs Douze Bakery part time from home in her health department certified kitchen. She is a certified food handler.
