Beth McNichols and Frances Kolenik, co-owners and bakers at BakerBaker in West Roxbury, have been recipe-swapping friends and moms for 20 years. The exchange of family classics ultimately led to a neighborhood bakery, which opened in December 2012. The old-fashioned storefront with its original tin ceiling sits on a stretch of West Roxbury where there are many women-owned businesses. At BakerBaker, a simple savory breakfast might be egg cups ($2.29), which are bread, egg, and milk mixed with turkey sausage and cheese, or another version with veggies and feta. For lunch, a club salad offers freshly baked turkey and crispy little bacon pieces tossed with lettuce, tomato, and cucumber in a buttermilk-chive dressing ($7.90). The duo are becoming known for their doughnut muffins, made with buttermilk, cinnamon, and sugar, and an apple-crisp muffin like apple pie in a muffin. Cupcakes ($2.90) come in classics, including red velvet. Squares of apricot and lemon or apple-blueberry pies come in itty-bitty and mini sizes ($2.29 to $4.49); rocket bars ($2.49) are made with whole-wheat flour, nuts, oatmeal, and raspberry preserves. They can’t stop baking. BakerBaker, 168 Spring St., West Roxbury, 617-325-BAKE (2253).
