Chalk to Flour a Bend, Oregon
Unlike Portland that has so many destination-worthy doughnut shops they might as well change the nickname from Beervana to Doughnutvana, Portlanders’ playground in Central Oregon, Bend, has a dearth of doughnutteries. Kristina Serhan has changed that all from the comfort of her own home.
Chalk to Flour is her home-based bakery, or cottage-based you can say thanks to Oregon cottage laws that provide for her to make everything from cookies to cakes to those scrumptious doughnuts without a commercial store or kitchen. The only real bummer is that you can’t walk in and have your mouth water staring at a rack of chocolate-glazed hazelnut-topped doughnuts; you have to order two days in advance and either pick them up from her porch (no need for a mask as she’ll have your order boxed up and waiting for you) or you can spring for local delivery.
Chalk to Flour has barely been in business over a year but Serhan is garnering word-of-mouth plus lots of digital oohs and aahs via Chalk to Flour’s Instagram account.
Good thing drooling over her custom cakes is sugar and carb free. And while she’s got a menu of her staples, she’ll truly customize anything you’re craving. Can’t decide between ordering a dozen cupcakes or cookies? Get cookie dough topped cupcakes!
In addition to being a doughnut fiend, I’m a glutton for cinnamon rolls. While she’ll bake you up a half dozen classic cream cheese frosted ones, I saw she makes a chocolate babka (the greater babka?!) roll. And she embellishes it with a little orange zest if you want. Well I love chocolate and orange so Serhan over-zested mine as if she thought, “what would Brian like?” Chocolate-orange-babka-roll not your jam?
Of course, some of her creations are a little more universal in their inspiration. Take the Oreo Roll. “I won’t lie,” says Serhan, “that was a 4/20 inspo. Like gourmet munchie food. My boyfriend only let me have half of one and devoured three on his own.”
