Zucker K√ľchen

Zucker K√ľchen, our newest offering of our Winter Holiday Menu is an Ambrosia Exclusive, you will not find this delicious dessert anywhere else!!!

Our owner & executive pastry chef, Sabrina Kate, grew up with this recipe being handed down generation after generation.. Here is her story about Zucker K√ľchen:

“Every holiday get-together¬†my father’s side of the family would celebrate with HUGE FEASTS!! The highlight of the meal (at least for¬†us kids) was Great Grandma Katherine’s Zucker K√ľchen, or what we all called “zooga kooga” lol ūüėČ My dad’s mama would even mail¬†some to us every Christmas after we had moved far away, and it was a sweet reminder of the times we had spent with all the cousins, aunts, and uncles celebrating.”

Sabrina has taken this original recipe and worked her magic on it to convert it to #organic #gmofree #glutenfree #cornfree #peanutfree #soyfree and STILL taste like the original recipe she grew up enjoying..

Zuker K√ľchen literally¬†translates in German to “Sugar Cake” and the texture of the cake is light and airy with anise and citrus flavor notes topped with cinnamon streusel and all-natural sprinkles.

Teal Pumpkin Project

1 in 13 kids in the U.S. have at least one food allergy.. This is SUPER frustrating and disheartening as Halloween approaches and parents have to worry about their children getting candy with known allergens in them (gluten, dairy, soy, nuts, etc)…

Food Allergy Research & Education has taken the Teal Pumpkin Project campaign national and even news agencies are supporting the initiative. The Teal Pumpkin Project’s goal is to protect kids with food allergies by letting trick-or-treating families know that there are non-food or allergy-safe options at your house.

As a food allergy sufferer myself and mama to littles with food allergies, this is a VERY exciting and important movement!!! My kids already have their costumes picked out and are excited to be watching for teal pumpkins ūüėÄ

Some non-candy ideas to drop in trick-or-treaters bags are: bubbles, play-doh, temporary tattoos, glow sticks, sidewalk chalk, mini puzzles, stickers…

Just 3 weeks ’til Halloween, and little ones (and big people too!) with food allergies should not be left out of the festivities!! Of course you can order some goodies from Ambrosia Natural Bakery that are totally food allergy-friendly for your little goblins and ghoulish celebrations!!! Selections off of our Autumn Menu¬†are available through November 30th, you may email your order to: ambrosianaturalbakery@yahoo.com, message us on Facebook, or give us a call/text at (541)295-4859.¬†‚Ä™#‚Äéorganic‚Ĩ¬†#gmofree‚Ĩ ‚Ä™#‚Äéglutenfree‚Ĩ ‚Ä™#‚Äédairycaseinfree‚Ĩ ‚Ä™#‚Äéeggfree‚Ĩ ‚Ä™#‚Äépeanutfree‚Ĩ ‚Ä™#‚Äésoyfree‚Ĩ ‚Ä™#‚Äécornfree‚Ĩ¬† #vegan

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day was an exciting time¬†this year¬†as the Ambrosia Team worked hard to celebrate the women who do it all!!!

Simply¬†Smashing Events and Shannon Queen Photography¬†hosted an amazing Mother’s Day Celebration Brunch at¬†the EdenVale Winery¬†for 12 local mothers in the Rogue Valley. The women were nominated and chosen for¬†a full day of pampering: getting hair, nails, and makeup done at a local salon; a catered brunch; professional photos; and lots of take-home goodies.¬†¬†We were thrilled to participate¬†by spoiling the heck out of these ladies with our most decadent, organic gluten-free gourmet desserts!!!

The celebration was featured on Catch My Party and KDRV Newswatch 12

One of our clients also hosted a Mother’s Day brunch, and she ordered several¬†delicious selections off of our Spring Menu to serve to her guests. Here is what she had to say about her order: “Sabrina at Ambrosia Bakery did a wonderful job in providing fantastic food for my brunch in honor of Mother’s Day. We had the blackberry muffins, lavender vanilla scones, green tea cupcakes, and the asparagus quiche. I love how she uses the best natural ingredients and avoids gluten and provides many alternatives to her already amazing menu. All my guests and I enjoyed everything and the presentation was amazing! Thanks Sabrina!”¬†¬†We think that and the pictures she submitted says it all!!! ūüėÄ
