While working with a client, I was fortunate to have had a corporate apartment in Midtown Manhattan for 7 months and really fell in love with the city. So I try to make it to New York City for fun a few times a year to visit my favorite gluten free eateries, take in a few Broadway shows and enjoy the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
One bakery that is great in New York City is Erin McKenna’s Bakery located at 248 Broome Street between Orchard and Ludlow. In fact, for one party, my friends even had a variety of the cupcakes delivered to their doorstep!
Erin McKenna’s Bakery (formally known Babycakes) offers all-natural, organic and delicious bakery items free from the common allergens: wheat, gluten, dairy, casein and eggs. Although their baked goods are 100% vegan and they offer numerous gluten-free products, a few of their baked goods contain spelt flour. (Separate pans, trays, utensils, sinks and sponges are used for the spelt ingredient).
They do not bake with soy; however, all of their gluten free flours are processed on equipment that packages hazelnut, almond flours and soy. They power wash the machinery and discard the initial 30 pounds of flour between runs.
In addition,Erin McKenna’s Bakery sweetens a number of their baked goods with agave nectar. Based on your allergen concerns, please remember to check out their ingredients list to see which sweets are right for you.
In my opinion, the cupcakes and brownies are very tasty but I have to say, that my all time favorites, are the blueberry muffins. These are some of the best gluten and dairy free muffins that I’ve found anywhere!
So if you are looking for delicious baked goods that are vegan and free from gluten, wheat, soy and egg, visit Erin McKenna’s Bakery in New York City, Los Angeles CA or Downtown Walt Disney World in Orlando FL. Also find Erin McKenna’s Bakery in the listing of specialty bakeries around the world!
