Rice's Bakery

Gil_caricature_small.jpg

Up into the 1970's the driver of a Rice's Bakery truck would come to your door with a tray full to overflowing with sinfully delicious baked goods - Vienna bread, Parker house rolls, cherry pie - and Louisiana Ring cakes. Louisiana Ring cake was a house specialty whose recipe, owner Emory Rice said, remained secret, known only in these years to Rice's alone. The Rice's door-to-door delivery trucks are gone - and the legend is that nobody these days has the recipe for Louisiana Ring cake, and this is the story of that legend.
