The Taste of Georgia
Mrs. Jeannie Gray
Jeannie Gray was born in Elberton, a small town in Eastern Georgia. Later in life, she lived in Atlanta, where she found her passion for baking when she began sharing her cakes with friends and family. She baked a variety of pastries, but being from the south, baking pound cakes was her specialty.
Her homemade recipe took a lifetime of love and care to perfect. In 1945, Jeannie put the finishing touches on her original recipe. It showcases exactly what a moist and fluffy pound cake should—Incredible texture and a baked-with-love taste that has given our family smiles for decades.
Jeannie, my Teacher
For years I have stood under my grandmother learning to bake. In her memory I have striven to share her love of baking with the world. She taught me about baking and entrusted me with her secret pound cake recipe, just as I am with my children. In our home everyone shares in keeping this family tradition alive. It's our passion to ensure that each and every cake is precisely mixed and handled with care, just as my grandmother had. Thank you for helping us continue on Jeannie's legacy.
