Baker's Corner

The Baker's Corner: where we share with you the best baking secrets, recipes, sales, specials, strategies, events, tricks of the trade, stories, memories, and most of all lots of warmth and laughter. Why? Because we have always believed that like crafting quality food and bread, running a family-business is about creating moments and traditions to be enjoyed.


We hope this special season is treating you well and is filled with friends, family and good food. Our elves are busy hand-crafting all of your Sunrise Bakery favorites. We love to be part of your family's holiday traditions.

As we round up our 104th year, we are thrilled to be baking and preserving an Iron Range favorite: potica. Our region's history is rich with stories of families and friends working together for a full day to carefully craft and hand-roll potica. Perhaps it is the way that these stories of collaboration and determination mirror much of this region's rich history that cultivates our love of this dessert. Or... maybe it's the honey, butter and walnuts. Either way, we are proud to be preserving this tradition. 

As you prepare for the weeks ahead, stop in or order online your favorite potica products: potica, potica coffee cake, potica bars. Prepare to stuff your stockings, treat your hostess, or gift your friends  and family with your favorite potica products. For local folks, call our store to special order all your holiday favorites including Tom & Jerry batter, snowflake rolls, coconut snowballs, our famous Italian bread, cookie trays and much more. 

From now until Monday, enter the code MERRY for 15% off your online order of any of our potica products. We recommend you order no later than Monday to ensure delivery for the holiday.

As always, thank you.
