All About Batter & Crumbs
You probably guessed that we’re vegan. Good guess. But we are vegans who love desserts. These days, many restaurants provide vegan menu items as an appetizer or entrée, but when it comes time for dessert disappointment sets in. Since it’s not easy to find vegan pastries on restaurant menus we decided to tackle the problem by marketing our products to local coffee shops and restaurants. Now these same places with nothing to offer their vegan customers can proudly serve great tasting items made by us!
Don’t worry, we take individual orders too! Although we can only serve local customers right now, we plan to ship some of our items in the near future.
Frequently Asked Questions
None. Nada. Zilch. Rather than use eggs, we have other tricks up our sleeves. Although there are commercial egg replacers available, we prefer to stick with bananas, ground flax seed, applesauce and cornstarch. By taking eggs out of the mix we say goodbye to a bunch of fat and cholesterol. Best of all, it makes the chickens happy.
No Whey! That’s right. There are so many amazing options for us to use when baking our products. Our favorite non-dairy milks include soy, almond, coconut and rice milk. In fact, we recommend trying any of these non-dairy alternatives at home too. Cereal with vanilla almond milk is delicious!
What about butter?
Ah, thought you would never ask. Two words. Earth Balance. This item is readily available at almost every supermarket these days. Pick some up next time and use it just like you use butter. No trans fats and tastes great.
We can accommodate requests for gluten-free items that are also vegan. With so many flour and starch alternatives available, gluten-free baking is a breeze. Although we do everything we can to avoid cross contamination, our kitchen is not a total gluten-free operation.
We can be. Many of our recipes are free of nuts but some of the ingredients we use are packaged on equipment shared with nuts. So if you are highly allergic you need to take this into consideration.
I want some now! Where do I go? What do I do?

I'm not local, do you ship?
Although we aren’t shipping our items just yet, we plan on doing so real soon. We still need to work out some details before offering this service.
How far in advance should I order?
For wholesale orders or orders for large events, we ask for 5 days advance notice. Smaller orders can be accommodated with less notice but we recommend 3 days to be on the safe side.
Do you deliver?
Yes we do. Local delivery is free of charge. Local is defined as within 10 miles of Media, Pennsylvania. Deliveries further than 10 miles will have a delivery charge of between $5-10. We can also arrange for you to pick up your order.
How quickly should I eat my treats?
Since we don’t use preservatives, we suggest eating them within 5-7 days. Most items freeze really well too. And, who are we kidding? Once you have a taste, they won’t stand a chance.
So if it's vegan, it must be healthy, right?
Well, not exactly. Let’s face it, it’s still dessert. Our goal is to create amazing treats that are cruelty-free.
