Pamela Richard first thought of the idea for her business, Miss Peabodys Southern Tea Cakes, while watching the Great British Baking Show. With the help of Rocky Mountain MicroFinance Institute, she finessed the idea into a full-fledged baking business offering unique southern sweet treats to the Denver market. Inspired by her grandmothers baking, Pamela opened her business in 2022 and decided that tea cakes would become her niche. ince then, she has also incorporated pies into her selection, making her one of Denvers favorite pie ladies.
Pamela was a part of boot camp class 2 at RMMFI, and she has stayed involved in the RMMFI community since those early days. Pamela joined the team as a part-time Outreach Specialist in 2022 to help recruit new aspiring entrepreneurs. She has volunteer as a mentor and was a part of the Bamboo Club Leadership Team.
For Pamela, her love for baking is a way to honor her late grandmother, who would often make tea cakes and share them with those who needed a little extra love.

The third episode of the Channel 4 baking show saw the remaining 10 contestants try their hand at various tasks for Bread Week, but during the first challenge judge Paul Hollywood set the team with a teacake task.
It led to Julia stopping Steven making it a hat-trick of Star Baker wins as she scooped the coveted prize, thanks to her penis snail, which was meant to be a Snail Under A Mushroom that left Paul and the viewers in hysterics.
Step 3Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured worktop and knead for about 10 minutes, until very pliable and stretchy. Put the dough in a clean, lightly oiled bowl, then cover tightly with cling film and leave to rise somewhere warm for about 1 hour, until doubled in size.
Step 4Punch down the risen dough to deflate it, then turn it out onto a lightly floured worktop. Scatter the cranberries evenly over the dough, and knead them in for 45 minutes, until evenly distributed.
Step 5Divide the dough into 12 equal portions. Shape each portion into a neat ball, then gently flatten with your fingers to make 12 perfectly round 11cm discs. Space them well apart on the lined baking sheets, then cover loosely with cling film. Leave to rise for about 40 minutes, until almost doubled in size. Towards the end of the rising time, heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/400F/Gas 6.
Step 7Meanwhile make the jam. Weigh out about 250g of the prepared fruit and place in a large pan. Place the cinnamon stick pieces, allspice, cloves and peel into the centre of the muslin, then draw up the sides and tie with string.
Step 9Remove the jam from the heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Remove the spice bag and the vanilla pod, then use a stick blender to blend the jam to a coarse pure. Take care: the jam will be very hot. Transfer the jam to a heatproof serving bowl. Cool, then cover, chill and set aside. Ką aš galiu padaryti, kad tai būtų užkirsti kelią ateityje?

Ive always loved Tunnocks Teacakes. To be honest I dont usually buy packets of chocolate biscuits when I do my weekly food shop as I know once that packet is open, Ill trough the lot! I did buy them when my children were at primary school and took packed lunches. We all love them in our house, so when we do buy a packet of teacakes, its a real treat.
In series 3 of the Great British Bake Off last summer the Technical Challenge in Biscuit Week was to make Chocolate Teacakes! I was excited to see this as they have always been a mystery about how you went about making them. As I had bought the book to accompany the last series How To Turn Everyday Bakes Into Showstoppers, I had the recipe but had absolutely no confidence in making them. Who can forget the lovely Cathryn and her famous catchphrase Oh my giddy aunt! every time something went wrong in the Bake Off tent. I also loved her comment I cant serve Mary Berry green carpet! Cathryn was a joy to watch on the TV, her bakes were stunning but the chocolate teacakes and the other biscuit bakes led to her leaving the show.
Last Wednesday my husband was away working up in Scotland. I was spending a day catching up on jobs and errands but decided once and for all I was going to get on with making these teacakes. I knew I was in for a tricky time but I thought if I followed the instructions carefully then I mightbe ok.
While all the chocolate was setting I had a go at making the marshmallow filling. I have never, ever made marshmallow before and began to get worried once I saw the method. It involved heating the egg whites, golden syrup and salt in a pan rather like an Italian meringue. You needed to add a vanilla pod but I didnt have one, so a splash of vanilla extract went in here instead. The one and only time I made Italian meringue to make a topping for lemon meringue cupcakes resulted in me burning my thumb when the meringue splashed on me. I still have a scar about 1cm long 2 years later! I opted for another method, mixing it all in the KitchenAid with my balloon whisk. It seemedto work ok.
It's the final two bakes of the competition with the only three remaining bakers of the original ten being Miranda Gore Browne, Ruth Clemens and Edd Kimber, one who will be eliminated after the first bake leaving only two for the final bake. They're at Fulham Palace this week, appropriate as what they will be preparing is a proper British tea fit for royalty. For their signature, they each need to make twenty-four identical mini cakes. After what ends up being a five hour deliberation by the judges and the announcement to the three of who has been eliminated, the final two have another nervous night before the final day and the final bakes for that royal tea party, they each to make twenty-four miniature tarts, twenty-four scones, twenty-four choux buns, and twenty-four finger sandwiches with their own made bread. The announcement of the winner will be made in front of forty special guests for tea, including their friends, family and some familiar faces from this season. Huggo
I found their website. There I learned the Tunnock's Teacake has been made in Scotland since 1890 and theyare popular throughout the United Kingdom. 've watched enough of "The Great British Baking Show" to know about thatlove of biscuits and tea cakes.
But what is Tunnock's? It's aÂ chocolate-coatedÂ treat with a biscuit base. Between the biscuit and the chocolate is a dome is created by Italian meringue andÂ a whipped egg white and butter mixture that creates a texture similar to marshmallow. But there is no gelatin so it's vegetarian, like my friend who bought them.
Pamela was no longer that little girl with two bouncy pigtails but she knew baking would nurture and comfort her during this time away from work. he had always loved baking with her grandmother. She had even been a given special name, Miss Peabody, a throwback to the Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show since she had always worn glasses.
It all became clear what she needed to do and in November 2022 Miss Peabodys was born. hen Im baking, I can feel my grandmother hugging me. She often tells her customers that baking tea cakes are her way of remembering the importance of loving each other. An old tradition that can still heal the world one tea cake at a time.
Miss Peabody was the nickname given to Pamela by her Grandma Helen. er grandmother was from Simmsport, Louisiana, a small town located about two half hours south of New Orleans. Pamela was the first of all the grandchildren which gave her seniority for helping cook with her Grandma Helen in the kitchen. ou could often find Grandma Helen making a pot of beans, okra and tomatoes, and sweet potatoes. Pamela paid close attention to everything she made. randma Helens home was always filled with family and friends. No special occasion was needed to stop by for a plate of her amazing food.
One of Grandma Helens specialties were her tea cakes. It was a sweet treat that poor people could afford to make. Grandma Helen would allow Pamela to help pour the dry and wet ingredients in a bowl and mix. y the time she was ten years old she was Grandma Helens official batter taster. Pamela often jokes that she comes from a long line of cooks. For us there is no greater love than a well prepared meal over a shared laugh.
This southern treat represents a time when families spent more time together and being neighborly was a way of life. iss Peabodys Tea Cakes hope to inspire memories that remind you of the importance of caring for others.
