Who is the Krazi Baker?

Who is the Krazi Baker?

Anything that can be baked on a griddle, the Krazi Baker does it. From soda farls to potato and apple cakes to fluffy pancakes, customers are wolfing them down as fast as he can make them. None of them need yeast, so all he has to do is mix the ingredients and he’s good to go.

This Krazi Baker bakes at markets across Northern Ireland and beyond. He’s also recently branched out into oven bakes and his Butter Shortbread made with Abernethy Butter scooped a Gold Star at the Great Taste Awards. He already holds one for his Potato Apple Bread.

Mark Douglas is from Dromore in County Down, Northern Ireland. He had the idea for street food after seeing lots on offer on various city breaks over the years.

You’d see every product under the sun, but never bread baked on site. I was wondering how to do this and when I went back to work, the answer was staring me in the face- hotplates and soda bread.”

Mark is a Bikram Yoga enthusiast who did classes at Belfast’s Conway Mill and also had a stall at their market. While he was there he was telling his classmates about his work as a Scuba Diving Instructor. When he told then there wasn’t much to see in Strangford Lough because visibility is poor, a guy shouted “The Crazy Baker is diving to see nothing!” Mark changed the Crazy to Krazi in keeping with his street food vibe and a brand was born.

Mark’s aim is to teach a lost skill back into the home; one that people will use and develop and bake to suit their needs. He holds does demonstrations and baking classes in workplaces, clubs and schools.

The Krazi Baker will return to Allianz Garden Show Ireland to bake artisan griddle breads on site, no additives or preservatives, just like at home!
