The Sweet History of Fultondale Bakery

March 22, 2022

Fultondale Bakery is one of the best-kept secrets in the city, perhaps even the state. At 1214 Decatur Hwy, the small building provides some of the best baked goods around. It’s definitely worth finding. 

Mother & Daughter connection

In 1973, Jewell Hines, known throughout the town as Nanny Hines, opened up her bakery to share her wonderful baked goods with the city. People came from not only Fultondale but the surrounding cities to sample the delicious sweets.  A trip to Fultondale was not complete without a visit to Nanny Hines bakeshop. In 1998, the business was passed down to her daughter, Judy Dobbs, and the attention to detail, high quality, and friendly service was carried on.

Sweets for the sweet

Brownies that are rich, chocolatey, and taste like the ones your momma used to make delicious donuts, and apple fritters that will change your life make the trip to the bakery worth the drive. Pecan pies, donut holes, and cupcakes are always fresh even in the late afternoon.

Made-to-order birthday cakes are also top-notch. Their biggest sellers are the tongue-slapping cinnamon rolls and fresh apple fritters. But there are no complaints about any of the offerings in the display cases.

5-star reviews and smiling faces

With glowing reviews on TripAdvisor and Yelp, Fultondale Bakery is worth the drive. Satisfy your sweet tooth and pin-drop a saved destination.  Future choices will include decadent Kolaches and scrumptious strawberry topped donuts.  If you are not sure what to choose, they will gladly make a recommendation.
