The Mason Dixon Bakery in Huntsville, AL

Ashley at Mason Dixon BakeryDr. Ashley Ramirez, Founder

Hearing the name Mason Dixon, I automatically have the urge to sing the song Dixie (aka “I Wish I Was in Dixie” and “Dixie’s Land”).  Soon it will start to take on another connotation to me – that of sweet treats in the Tennessee Valley.

Mason Dixon Bakery is located in a very unassuming location – if you blink you just might drive by it.  Once inside, you will be delighted by the aroma of sweet treats being baked.

Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcake at Mason Dixon Bakery in Huntsville

Rich chocolate.  Creamy icing.  The cupcake above and the cupcake below were delicious.  I should know – I ate both of them.

I confess to eating this one, too:

Here’s another cupcake – I cannot recall if I ate it or if my daughter did.  (I think all of the sugar may have affected my memory.)

There is a special feature to (the) Mason Dixon Bakery – all of the treats are gluten-free.  That’s right – there is no wheat in the products available at Mason Dixon Bakery.

Aren’t they cute?  Not only can you find cupcakes there, but also other baked goods.  Below are some of the cookies that are available:

What is really interesting is that they even make wedding cakes.  This is great news for those who suffer from celiac disease or who have a wheat/gluten sensitivity.  They can enjoy their special day with a special wedding cake.

Mason Dixon Bakery, opened by Ashley and her husband Taylor, has been producing delicious treats since August 2013.

Ashley discovered that she had a severe allergy to gluten while she was in college.  After finishing her PhD. in Chemistry, she and her husband moved to Huntsville.  When things did not work out as planned due to sequestration, the two pursued their dream of opening a dedicated gluten-free bakery.

If you are in the Tennesee Valley (Huntsville, Alabama), you can stop by and get a cup of coffee and a gluten-free treat.  My favorite?  The Brownie Crunch – it has a pretzel almond crust.

Yum! I'll have to check that out next time I visit my MIL in Huntsville! We go right by there. Actually, I'll tell her to stop in ahead of time to sample it for us. :)

Pretzel Almond crust? Oh that sounds divine! I have a friend that lives in Huntsville, I'll have to ask her if she's ever been and if not, tell her to go!
