About The Danes Bakery

We are a family run bakery that has been dedicated to baking high quality, great tasting, and amazing looking  cakes and bread, in Limerick City, since 1941. We still use the best of traditional methods and recipes blended with new trends, ideas and flavours.

Our highly skilled team of bakers and confectioners are up before the lark to ensure your bread and cakes are baked fresh.

If it’s a blast from the past you want we still make our legendary chocolate boat buns, delicious chocolate & lemon fresh-cream maderia cakes, and our rich fruit cake is not to be missed. We also make a fantastic range of more modern cake flavours, chocolate fudge cake, red velvet cake, sticky toffee cake and many more to please the most discerning palate.

Each of our breads are hand moulded and made from the finest flour and ingredients. Our soda breads and spelt breads are made with fresh Irish buttermilk and our white farmhouse loaf is a light airy bread with all the flavour of what a good bread should be.

We also make delicious oat and corn bread, seeded breads that are jam packed full of goodness with sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seed, millet seed and linseed.

Our wedding and special occasion cakes have changed in  design over the years. What hasn’t changed since we opened our doors in 1941 is the care and attention to detail that goes into each and every one. If its a traditional rich fruit cake with almond paste and royal icing, a fondant iced floral extravaganza or a wickedly decadent chocolate cake or a naked cake; we can make them all for you and your family and friends to enjoy!
