Lura’s Kitchen ‘Madear’s Teacake Mix,’ is a simple but rare blend of rich decadent vanilla and fragrant nutmeg. Named for Lura’s mother, Mary Lee Daniels, who was affectionately called “Madear.” Just like each of Lura’s mixes, they are three ingredients and ready to eat in thirty minutes or less. Just add eggs and butter. Steeped in African American history and culture, teacakes in America date back over 200 years ago, prepared by slaves in the southeastern United States; Plantation cooks made Teacakes a specialty for guests of white plantation owners. Although plantation cooks created this “sweet cookie” served with tea, it was not “slave food” as slaves did not have access to white flour. However, cooks would hide cookies to slip to their families at their own risk as a matter of record. Over time, Teacakes have become inextricably linked to southern African American culture.
Lura’s Kitchen is a multi-generational family-run benefit corporation located in South Los Angeles. We are in the business of doing good and giving back 2% of annual profits to our community each year. This June as part of our “Sweetness of Doing Good Program,” partial proceeds from our sales will help restore the tower of the Congregational Church of Christian Fellowship. The site of Civil Rights Advancement, the housing of labor leader and civil rights icon Cesar Chavez, and formative involvement in community healthcare. The tower serves as a symbol of hope, peace, and freedom for thousands in LA daily. So order your mixes today. Enjoy a time-honored dessert and help keep the Bell Tower and Cross perched high above the palm trees to inspire us all.
