About Us

The Allergy Table is a small home-based bakery founded in 2016 by Jennifer Plumer.  The Allergy Table specializes in baked goods that are free of the top 8 allergens (Peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, wheat (gluten), egg, soy, shellfish & sesame) and full of the delicious qualities of traditional baked goods that we all know and love.

The Allergy Table is a business that was born from the simple desire to create a cider mill donut for her son Aiden, who lives with severe, life threatening food allergies.

Jen refused to let her heart be broken once again over the idea of her son being excluded from enjoying a traditional treat with the rest of his class.  Jennifer worked tirelessly to create an allergen free donut by experimenting with a variety of recipes in her own allergen-free kitchen.

After many (many) hours of research and countless failed attempts, Jen finally developed a winning recipe that tasted great and looked just like the cinnamon sugar donuts at the cider mill. This one piece of success allowed her son to participate in a school Field trip to the cider mill for the first time ever.

Once word got around school that Jen’s donuts were not only safe, but delicious too, the orders started rolling in  and a small business was born.  That one donut inspired an entire menu of items that are now available by private order and at local farmers market events in the Rochester Hills area.

This company was created first and foremost for Jen’s son Aiden, and second for every person that has ever had to sit at an Allergy Table because of a food allergy or food restriction.

We make it possible to stop saying NO to traditional baked goods and treats and start saying YES with a little help from…the Allergy Table.
