THE MARILYN DENIS SHOW
In 2018, The Butternut Baking Co. was featured on The Marilyn Denis Show and was selected to participate in a “High Tea Bake-off” contest. Inspired by their humble beginnings, Michelle and Chris created the ultimate “high tea at the cottage” theme. They were thrilled that the judges loved their concept and were beyond excited when they won a trip to London, England!

“You know you have a valid business idea making sugar-free, grain-free and all-natural baked goods, when you end up serving a customer the first slice of cake she’s had in 50 years.
“Fifty years is a long time,” says Michelle Moraes, co-owner of the newly opened The Butternut Baking Co. on Dundas St. W., east of Keele St.
That customer was a longtime diabetic — and wrote Moraes and business partner Chris Curtis a thank you note after eating a cake slice, which did not impact her insulin levels.
The Butternut sells baked goods based on the paleo diet, so they don’t include any grains or sugar. Many are also dairy free or completely vegan (so no eggs or dairy). So it appeals to those on a limited diet, including gluten free, ketogenic (an anti-cancer diet) and paleo. . . .”
