On the corner of Historic 25th Street in Ogden, you’ll find a charming little bakery, aptly named for a woman with a passion for good ingredients and sweets of all kinds: Brookey Bakes.

The tidy space is just as sweet as the treats it houses…

With a case full of cookies, cakes, quiches, and all manner of sweet and savory hand pies, it’s no wonder that Brooke Barragan has been picking up steam—and clientele—since 2018. This gal is originally from the Windy City, and—like so many before her—it was a series of unexpected-yet-serendipitous events that kept Brooke and Co. in the Beehive. And, luckily for us all, a passion for baking and all things tasty eventually blossomed into a real life, brick and mortar shop. Many of the recipes served here are near and dear to Brooke’s heart, but of all the premium ingredients in this kitchen, Kerrygold butter might just be this baker’s favorite (a good indicator, we think, of the flakey, buttery deliciousness to be found inside).

Brooke’s baked goods aren’t the only bit of this business that comes from the heart—the company strives to “be a happy, cooperative, collaborative, and supportive member of the Ogden community in all the ways we can,” and has even created the hashtag #benevolentbrookeybakes to document their charitable endeavors (which include fundraising, donating, and general do-goodery for their community and other local businesses).

In short, it’s not only Brookey’s baked goods that are making the world a whole lot sweeter (but they certainly help).
