After a life-long love for baking, Tennessee-newcomer Sarah Gonzalez started her own at-home business, Spring Hill Bakery. Sarah started her business in May 2015 and quickly became known as the go-to person for fresh, homemade bread in Spring Hill. Less than a year after opening, Spring Hill Bakery opened a commercial location at the historic Rippavilla Plantation on March 5th of this year.
“I grew up in the kitchen. I think I remember helping as early as 6 when I’d stand on a stool and stir cookie dough or peel carrots for my mother. My Gramma, mom, and three aunts (one of whom was a professional chef) are all fantastic cooks and bakers. I’ve learned a lot from all of them,” Sarah said.
But homemade bread is what Sarah is most passionate about.
“My first experience with amazing homemade bread was with my aunt’s sourdough,” she said. And Sarah wants to share the wonder of excellent homemade bread with her community. At Spring Hill Bakery, everything is homemade, using the finest ingredients and baked in small batches to maintain the best flavors.
Just a few of the things you can purchase at Spring Hill Bakery:
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Chocolate Chip Espresso Cookies
Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Twist
Flourless Peant Butter Cookies
Jalapeno Cheddar Bread
Try one of their newer items–the Rippavilla Rose: Rippavilla Rose. Named for Spring Hill’s historical landmark Rippavilla Plantation, this light and airy confection is layer upon thin layer of sweet brioche dough with cinnamon, brown sugar, sweet cream butter, and local honey. Add cream cheese frosting, or eat it plain. Either way, these will soon be one of your favorite treats!
