When her husband was diagnosed with celiac disease, Pamela Schulte went on a mission to make the sweets and treats he still craved but couldn’t eat. She spent hours and hours refining recipes to take the “tasteless” out of gluten-free baking, and her husband was happy when she came up with some cookies, muffins, and cupcakes that were moist, delicious, and completely free of gluten. 

Her quest became her passion, and Lucky Spoon Bakery was born.

Pam joins our hosts in the latest episode of The Taste of Harmons Podcast, to talk about her experiences developing delicious treats that everyone can enjoy, not just those who are gluten-intolerant. You’ll want to tune in to hear her trips and tricks to gluten-free baking, and more. 

Pamela Schulte is proud that her business, Lucky Spoon Bakery, is changing the way people think about gluten-free food. Instead of gluten-free being code for taste-free, she spent hours refining recipes to make it good…really good.

Always a baker at heart, Pam found her niche when her husband became gluten-intolerant. She set out to reinvent the concept, and to serve up foods “every bit as tasty as their fully glutenized counterparts.”

Now she is on a mission to share her gluten-free treats—including cookies, cupcakes, muffins, brownies, and cakes—with the world, making Lucky Spoon Bakery synonymous with moist, fresh, and delicious baked goods.
