Tourism–Dutch Maid Bakery, Tracy City
The Dutch Maid Bakery in Tracy City was founded in 1902 by Swiss immigrants John and Louise Baggenstoss and was housed in an old brick building with hardwood floors.
“The bakery has survived this long because of its great recipes,” said current owner Cindy Day, who purchased the bakery in 2005. She collected all the original recipes the Baggenstoss family used back in 1902. “Every loaf of bread is hand-rolled and we ship fruitcakes all over the United States,” said Day.
Breads from the bakery include Black Olive Roasted Red Pepper, Chuck Wagon, Honey Wheat, Jalapeno, Onion Dill, Pumpernickel, Raisin, rosemary Olive Oil, Rye, Marble Rye, Schweizer Brot-Sugar Free, Six Grain, Six Grain Country French, Sour dough, Sundried Tomato, and their famous Salt Rising Bread.
Pastries, rolls, cookies, candies, jams and jellies and fruitcakes such as their Applesauce Fruitcake, loaded with applesauce making the cake moist and delicious, are also available.
Specialty cakes and wedding cakes are also available by special order.
The Dutch Maid Bakery was recently featured in the “Pie in the Sky Trail,” which spans 363 miles throughout East and portions of Middle Tennessee, guiding tourists through communities brimming with attractions and outdoor adventure from Chattanooga to Monteagle, McMinnville to Crossville and returning to the Sequatchie Valley. The bakery is one of the points of interest on the trail.
