Our Story

Elegant Elephant Baking Co.

was founded in May of 2012 by Jessie Scarola in Eugene, OR. Jessie has been gluten-free since 2005…tired of a dismal selection of celiac-friendly pastries and treats, Jessie took her highly-praised homemade recipes into the Incubator Kitchen at Hummingbird Wholesale — and from there, into the world!

Elegant Elephant Baking Co. currently specializes in gluten-free desserts and pastries and also provides accommodating options for nut, dairy and soy allergies as well as vegan products. Gluten-free is all we do, and we aim to be the very best! Check out our product descriptions, keep up with our news on our blog, find out where to get your hands on some of our delicious desserts, and coming soon, online ordering!

  1. I ordered from you the potato bread with currants, donuts, vegan and sugar free these are my favorite. The pumpkin pie is great. The raspberry muffins are ok, not my favorite. Its a nice treat to have for the holiday, Thank you. Now with this new lockdown will you stay open?

    1. Hi Jody,
      So glad you’re enjoying them!
      Yes we will remain open, with curbside pick up and walk up To-Go orders.
      Best,

  2. Hello, I live in Central Oregon and have been lucky enough to find your products locally. As I’m learning more about glyphosate and pesticides and trying to keep an organic diet, I’m wondering if your products are also organic. Actually, I wonder if I need to be concerned about glyphosate in the gluten free flours? It’s so hard to find this information so I appreciate any help you can provide.

    1. Hi Tamara,
      Thank you for your comment. It is often hard to find information about use of pesticides in food products. We use as much organic ingredients as possible, while keeping our products price affordable for our customers. We work with reputable groups to source our raw ingredients from. While we can’t guarantee 100% of our ingredients are free of pesticides we do our absolute best to provide nutritious and safe products to our customers.
      Best,
      Jessie
