Serendipity Bakery Opens!

Serendipity Cheesecakes - first batch in the commercial kitchen!
After two months of red tape, applications, business plans and licenses, Papa Bear spent his first evening in the commercial kitchen in La Crosse tonight pumping out nearly 200 bite-sized cheesecakes from Serendipity Bakery.

Not only are they made from locally sourced, organic cream cheese and other gourmet ingredients, not only are they scrumpdilliocious, they are also Gluten-free and low sugar!

Really, how could you say "no" to this type of guilt-free decadence?

The 8-hour night in the commercial kitchen was a hot and painful memory I'd rather soon forget, with us dropping into bed at 4:00am, but I am so proud of the work that my sweetie (pun!) has put into this endeavor and so excited for his new business!

Almost done!

So, what goes into a Serendipity cheesecake, you ask?

The cast of characters, in no particular order:

{Note the 20-quart industrial Hobart mixer in the background!}

Free-range chicken eggs (no, not from our flock - we're not allowed per the inspectors)...

Free-range chicken eggs

Xylitol (glycemic index of 7 compared to sugar's 40)...

Xylitol - low glycemic!

Soooooo Delicious regular flavor creamer (we often use this in place of milk or creamer, since it's coconut NOM)...

So Delicious creamer

Pure vanilla extract...

Ghirardelli chocolate, which needs no introduction...

A little love, a little magic, and a Woodsie popsicle stick.
