Sometimes a passion turns into a career. For Morgan Tyschper, owner of DeEtta’s Bakery, she gets to live out her dream job of baking and creating every day. DeEtta’s Bakery opened their doors in Naperville a decade ago, and ever since, has become a staple in the Naperville community for all things sweet.
Tyschper began baking with her mother and grandmother back when she was a young girl. She felt the most comfortable when she was in her kitchen baking. “I knew when I became a mother, I didn’t want to set an example of not enjoying my career. I didn’t want to be 80 years old thinking ‘coulda, shoulda, woulda…’” Tyschper says. This led to her and her husband opening DeEtta’s Bakery.
DeEtta’s Bakery is named after Tyschper’s late mother, DeEtta. In fact, it was her mother who always encouraged her to bake, buying her ingredients and cookbooks to do so. Tyschper says it was also her mother who “made sure (she) learned to clean up after (herself).” Baking requires more than mixing ingredients together; it also includes wiping down the counters after, too!
Not only is DeEtta’s Bakery located in Naperville, but Tyschper also lives within the community, raising her family here. Her love of being part of the Naperville community is considered very rewarding for her. Outside of baking and owning a bakery, she greatly enjoys getting to be a mom for her three children and going to their activities.
DeEtta’s Bakery is a one-of-a-kind gem in the Naperville community, as it is a locally owned and independent bakery. She says that she, the bakers and the decorators do what they do because they love it. One thing that makes DeEtta’s Bakery stand out is their (not-so) secret ingredient: butter. “We only use butter in our baked goods, and butter makes everything better!” she adds.
One of her favorite baked goodies to bake are chocolate chip cookies. “The simplicity of them is what makes them delightful,” she says. After all, you can never go wrong with chocolate chip cookies.
Another unique characteristic to the bakery is their use of local ingredients to make their tasty treats. All of their treats use real butter, flour, sugar and eggs. Their website states that “during local growing seasons, (they) can often be found at local farmer’s markets sourcing items for the bakery. (They) look to support local growers in (their) seasonal offerings.” DeEtta’s values the use and support of local ingredients, which makes their bakery so unique to Naperville.
