Old World Baked Goods from Petra’s Backstubchen
by Ted Scheffler
A Utah Backstube
Backstube is the German word for bakery or bakehouse. And for authentic, German-style pastries in Utah, look no further than Petra Vigil’s Old Country baked goods at Petra’s Backstubchen. Developed from her mother’s recipes and those from cookbooks she brought with her from her native Germany, Petra Vigil bakes and sells strudels, pretzels, cookies, cakes and seasonal pastries from her home-based business.
Prior to becoming a full-time baker, Petra worked with youth in group homes and foster care situations. “I enjoyed working with kids,” she says. She always enjoyed baking, as well. “It relaxes me,” said Vigil. It was her family and friends who first suggested that she turn her love of baking into a business. She followed that advice and says, “I made my dream come true.”
