As part of my series about “Powerful Womxn Who Are Changing The World”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Daphne Subar, who is a law practitioner turned baker and entrepreneur! Not only is she on a mission to help the world be a little sweeter, but she also hopes to inspire women to follow their passions and achieve their dreams.

I am thrilled to highlight Daphne Subar and share her inspiring story and delicious creations.

After practicing law for many years, Daphne came to the realization that it was time to follow her dreams and passion and open a bakery. She knew that she wanted to create something unique, something tasty, and something sweet. After thinking (and over-thinking) this idea for several years and being encouraged and nudged by friends and family, she finally had the courage to take the next step, and Subarz was launched.

Growing up, Daphne Subar always loved to bake and watch her mother in the kitchen. She shared that once she had a family of her own, the kitchen became a communal place in her home, not only for her husband and daughters but for friends and family as well.

While her children were little she experimented and adapted recipes to appeal to their various taste preferences, as well as their various dietary restrictions and allergies. Through those experiments, she developed a recipe for mandelbread — which soon became a favorite among friends and family.

After perfecting that recipe, she knew it was time to create something unique. She endeavored to combine the flavor and texture of mandelbread with the ease and popularity of a cookie or a bar. After spending hours in the kitchen and through trial and error with various ingredients and shapes, Subarz were created and were an instant hit.

Over the years, Daphne has introduced expanded the selection of Subarz, and now offers gluten-free Subarz as well as Passover-friendly Subarz. Daphne is always looking for new ways to make this crazy world just a little bit sweeter, bite-by-bite
