Mama Donna was born and raised in Philadelphia during a time when every neighborhood had at least one storefront bakery. These bakeries supplied communities with fresh breads, sweet rolls, pies for the holidays, and cakes for special occasions. Nearly every weekend, boxes of freshly baked sticky buns or crumb buns graced the kitchen table as families gathered before Saturday activities or after church on Sundays.
As more supermarkets added in-store bakeries, the storefronts closed down and local such as the crumb buns, butter cakes, and properly made pumpernickel bread with its dark, chewy crust disappeared. After years of experimenting, searching, and testing, Mama Donna perfected these recipes and brought old-time favorites back to life. Her dream was to someday be able to (re)introduce these special treats and the traditional family-owned bakery.
In 2015, Mama Donna's Bakery was born!
