Doughbox Bakery

Almost two dozen people are employed at the Doughbox Bakery where everything is made from scratch by breaking the eggs and blending in the sugar and flour. There are no additives or preservatives. The early risers explain "It's just like home baking of long ago except where Mom made two dozen cookies in a batch, we make 22 dozen per batch!"

Although there are always demands for their assorted dinner rolls, sweet rolls, cookies and pies, the signature item is probably Belly Stickers. The exact origin of Belly Stickers is not known, but most people say in the early 1900's when Archbold's ever-saving Mennonite women wanted to make a sweet treat for their families, they used their leftover bread dough and the plentiful cream from milking to create Belly Stickers. The cream is mixed with sugar and vanilla, and spooned over the raw, raised rolls. During the baking, the sweet cream seeps to the bottom of the pan. Then, just before serving, the pan is turned over and a sticky, but delicious topping results. Belly Stickers are wonderful for breakfast, but because of their sweetness they are also served as a dessert in the Archbold area.

The frozen cookie dough and pies have become quite popular items at the Doughbox Bakery. It seems people really enjoy the smell of fresh baked cookies in their kitchen (without all of the mess!). These frozen goods are now available to groups looking for fund-raising opportunities. We have also added our jams, jellies & apple butter as well as our canned meats & noodles to the list. What better way to raise money for your organization than by selling a quality item from a local business.
