Looking for a delicious treat? Then head into our Danish Kringle Store in Oak Creek.
Situated only twelve miles South of Milwaukee, our Danish baked pastries, donuts, artisan bread and sweet delights are baked fresh daily and are ready to satisfy your sweet tooth and hungry tummy. We are passionate about providing our valued customers with quality and perfection in every bite, whether you select our famous Kringle pastry with homemade fillings or a made to order sandwich. Now in our fourth generation of family ownership, our bakery is continuing to provide quality baked goodies and pastries, excellent customer service and a warm and inviting atmosphere as well as giving back to our supportive community.
Descending from Danish immigrants in the 1920s, our bakery was initially founded by Christian Olesen and has remained in the family since the doors of our bakery first opened. After arriving in Racine County as a teenage boy, Christian spent more than two decades learning the bakery trade before finally launching O&H Bakery in 1949 with a business partner.
Once Christian’s son, Ray, and his wife, Myrna took over the family business in 1963, the popularity of the bakery flourished as did the Danish Kringle pastry. Using the ingenuity of Racine bakers, who changed the original pretzel shaped treat to a new oval shape to pack in more filling, our delicious Kringles continue to be made to satisfy the requests of our customers looking for that exceptional goodness in each bite.
Ray continued to work hard and using traditional Danish pastry techniques and methods; he grew the bakery which resulted in the need to move the bakery to larger location in 1972 and open a second store in 1982. This second location made it easier for people from North and South Racine to access and enjoy our delightful Kringle and baked goods.
We have continued to listen to our customers which has resulted in adding a few more convenient store locations, including our Danish Kringle Bakery in Oak Creek, to share our love for quality pastries, family traditions and our Danish heritage. After more than a century of being made locally, the Kringle is now such an integral part of Racine, Wisconsin history that is was designated as “The Official State Pastry of Wisconsin” in 2013.
Resulting in buttery, flaky and a mouthwatering pastry and filled with an array of delicious flavors, our Kringle is something that everyone must experience. We follow the traditional and time-honored technique of dough making that originated in Denmark during the mid-1800s when Austrian bakers influenced our Danish pastry. Our skilled bakers roll the pastry dough multiple times, layering it with butter and then letting it rest overnight. We know that our patience and dedication to this lengthy baking method always pays off when we prepare the 36-layer-pastry dough.
The Kringle dough that surrounds our scratch made fillings is a rich, light, tender, flaky and flavorful pastry that will remind you of delicious home baking. You can select from a wide range of fillings that have been made with just as much love as our dough, and some delightful ingredients were handcrafted from our family’s homemade recipes that have been passed down through our grandparents and parents.
We use the finest ingredients that we can find to complement our delectable Kringle pastry, and we are fortunate enough to have the best fruits right at our doorstep. These include the famous juicy Wisconsin Door County montmorency cherries, fresh from the bog cranberries and many other of the best seasonal ingredients we can find. In fact, we are always eagerly anticipating a change in seasons and the new flavors each month and season brings. This approach of letting nature provide us with the best ingredients is something we firmly believe in, because if your ingredients taste wonderful then the quality of our Danish Kringle is sure to be outstanding.
This passion that we always use the best ingredients, has led us back to our Viking roots and we embrace roaming the world looking for the highest quality, premium flavors and ingredients, which we use as inspiration to continue to add to our selection. Our travels have led us to create unforgettable tastes using Indonesian cinnamon, Vanilla beans from Madagascar and decadent Swedish Chocolate, just to name a few.
