The Tea Cake Roundup began with my personal quest to replicate my Aunt Maggie’s tea cake recipe. The tasty treats were a fond link to my past in rural Minden, Louisiana.
As an adult living in Austin, I longed for Aunt Maggie’s unwritten tea cake recipe. An avid cook, I set out in earnest to recreate the treasured recipe.
I embarked on my own trial and error, and finally took my quest to the world wide web. I set up a website, teaccakeproject.com where I solicited recipes, poems and remembrances. The response was overwhelming and I received submissions from around the country fueling my determination to preserve the recipes and memories for generations to come.
