Gluten Free Danish Cakes & Pastries from O&H Bakery

We’re Danish and we want everyone to experience delicious pastries!  Being on a gluten-free diet doesn’t mean you need to miss out on the joy and experience of biting into a soft, luxurious and flavorful dessert.  We understand that having a gluten allergy means you need to avoid foods that contain certain ingredients such as wheat, rye, barley and oats which is why we have created a range of delicious gluten-free Danish desserts.  Our Racine bakery is the perfect place to source mouthwatering baked goods that will satisfy your sweet tooth while also abiding by your dietary restrictions.  We use quality ingredients and scratch-bake our decadent desserts to ensure that you receive a perfectly balanced, flavorful, sweet treat.  Our customers are often amazed as how good our gluten free items taste, even serving this to guests who have no dietary restrictions and the consensus is that “they’ll definitely have another piece!”.

History of O&H Danish Bakery

Dale Olesen BakingIn the hopes of finding a better life for his family, Anton Olesen immigrated to Racine, Wisconsin “the most Danish city in America”, during the 1920s.  After working diligently and saving enough money, Anton finally brought his son, Christian, over to live with him in this land of new opportunity.  As a teenage boy, Christian began to work at a local bakery and found a passion for making traditional Danish pastries and cakes which he continued to master for 25 years before opening his own store.  O&H Danish bakery was born in 1949 and was the humble beginnings of what is now a fourth-generation family-owned business that is based on important core values such as traditional time-honored recipes, excellent customer service, community support and the Olesen family guarantee.

The bakery was taken to new heights by Christian’s son, Ray, and his wife Myrna during their two decades of ownership beginning in 1963.  Ray expanded the business and moved it into a new and larger premise before opening a second bakery location which gave the North and South side of the Racine community better access to our decadent Danish delights and the famous Kringle pastry.  Our bakery has seen further generations of family and bakers carry on our passion and tradition of baking quality Danish pastries, cakes and desserts which has led us to open more bakeries around Racine.  While we continue to move with the times and use the help of the Internet and online orders to reach long distant customers with our tender Kringle pastries, soft Danish cakes and perfect cookies, we pledge to never deviate from practicing the traditional recipes and baking methods that have been passed down from our grandparents.

Gluten Free Danish Desserts from O&H Bakery in Racine

Gluten Free Coffee CakesSinking your teeth into delicious gluten-free pastries, cakes and desserts are now that much easier with our range of Danish baked goods.  We strive to maintain the integrity of our gluten-free treats, which is why we use a separate designated gluten-free bakery to make our yummy desserts.  We guarantee that you will love the flavor and texture of our gluten-free baked products that are filled with just as much tasty goodness as our regular pastries.

Our selection of gluten-free Danish desserts include:

  • Coffee Cakes:  Coming in two tasty flavors, our coffee cake is the perfect accompaniment to a hot drink on a cold day or as a dessert offering for your guests.  The five-inch Cranberry Almond Coffee cake is rich with sour cream making it delicious, moist and tender.  This cake boasts of cranberry while giving off subtle hints of almond flavor.  Alternatively, our Apricot Streusel Coffee Cake is just as delightful and rich in flavor and is an ideal treat for any time of the day.  Both cakes freeze well, meaning you can indulge in a piece of these Danish desserts for days on end.
  • Layer Cake:  Celebrating a birthday or anniversary?  You can enjoy a piece of cake on your special day with our hand-decorated Gluten-Free Trinity Layer Cake.  A beautifully presented cake that starts with a silky smooth cheesecake base layer, you will enjoy every bite from the first taste to the last mouthful.  Our famous Wisconsin cherry and cranberry filling give this cake a balance of fruity tartness as the second layer while we complete the third layer with our specially made gluten-free cake.  This cake looks just as good as it tastes with a smooth hand-decorated frosting and toppings.
  • Chocolate Brownies:  The decadent taste of triple chocolate in our six-inch baked gluten-free brownies is every chocolate lovers dream.  Our brownies are baked to perfection, which results in a thick and chewy delightful slice of goodness that contains semi-sweet, white and milk chocolate chips in every bite.  We know this baked good is too delicious just to have a small serving, which is why we send two round brownies with every order.
  • Triple Chocolate Cookies:  If you prefer small sweet dessert rather than cake then we have just the treat with our Triple Chocolate Cookies.  Our one rule for baking specialty goods, including our gluten-free products, was that they had to taste just as delicious as our other bakery items.  That goal is achieved with these perfectly round triple chocolate cookies that are like a sweet taste of the good old home baking.  With dark, milk and white chocolate chips scattered through the chocolate-flavored dough, you’ll find it hard to only eat one cookie.
