In 2010, Germans Kerstin Marks and Judith Lamb began their baking enterprise under the name of 'Störtebäcker', which translates (they insist) to 'disturbingly delicious rogue baking'. Starting with a sourdough loaf raised in Corstorphine, the bakery now extends to include many other loaves, rolls, cakes, tortes, pastries, conserves and chutneys, many of which are steeped in German tradition. Kartoffelbrot using potatoes in its recipe and the Winschgauer Brot (containing Blackforest ham) and Winschgauer, with bread spices and roasted onions, are just two of their German breads. Desserts and sweet snacks include Schneckennudeln: cinnamon iced buns, and Baumkuchen Torte: a spiced German layer cake glazed in apricot that resembles the inside of a tree trunk when cut. Many of the loaves and cakes are also gluten free and always included in market bakes - Störtebäcker attends Edinburgh's weekly markets in Portobello, Stockbridge, Juniper Green and Morningside. Their main bake day is Friday, but pre-orders are taken on any day.
