IMA Gala Saturday May 12, 2012

Hi Lillabee Friends,


We wanted to let you all know about a wonderful event for a wonderful cause. This Saturday you can join International Midwife Assistance (IMA)  from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., the day before Mother’s Day, to celebrate mothers everywhere! BoldeReach is hosting a gala in honor of IMA in a beautiful  private home in Boulder’s Pinebrook Hills neighborhood (map provided with ticket purchase). It will be a fabulous evening of friends, international cuisine, festive music, entertainment, live auction, dancing and desserts by Lillabee!


IMA raises the standard of maternal and infant care in areas experiencing health crises. The BoldeReach Gala is raising funds to support IMA’s Teso Safe Motherhood Project (TSMP) in Soroti, Uganda. TSMP is a health clinic and birth center for the most marginalized and vulnerable populations. IMA offers nearly 40,000 women and children annually medical care, prenatal checkups, vaccinations, family planning services and a birth center. Through these services, women receive the assistance they need to help ensure safe, healthy pregnancies. Simple, low-cost health interventions are all that is needed to save countless lives of women and babies in Uganda.


To join us in supporting these wonderful folks in their efforts to provide health care service for women in need, please go to to purchase tickets. Tickets cost is a donation of $95 per person and space is limited.


To learn more about IMA go to


This organization is so very near and dear to our hearts here at the Lillabeehive. If you are unable to attend, please consider making a donation in honor of  mothers and children everywhere. As little as $7 can provide an expecting mother with a mosquito net to protect her and her unborn child form malaria. 100% of your donations will go directly to the cause.



Happy Mother’s Day! 

We hope to see you at the gala!

Paonia Pear Upside-Down Ginger Cake



What happens when Lillabee teams up with MM Local? A heavenly match made in Boulder! This delicious holiday tasty treat is surely one to share! You will impress any crowd with this show stopper.


  • 1 box Lillabee Classic Yellow Cake Mix 
  • 1 jar of MMLocal Paonia Pears
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 c + 2 Tbsp butter/ Non-dairy butter substitute
  • 1 tsp gluten free vanilla 
  • 1/2 c milk (cow, rice, almond, soy, etc.)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1/4 c molasses 
  • 2 Tbsp fresh ground ginger
  • 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice blend
  • 2 Tbsp black currants (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp spiced rum or pear brandy (optional)

Place rack in the center of oven and preheat to 325.

Grease a 9″ round pan. Slice pears and arrange in the bottom of cake pan. Add currants if desired. Reserve pear juice for glaze.

In a small bowl, combine milk, vinegar or lemon juice and vanilla. Set aside.

Open Lillabee sugar packet and measure out 1/4 cup. Discard this 1/4 c of sugar and use the remaining contents in the next step.

In the mixing bowl of your electric mixer combine remaining contents of Lillabee sugar packet, butter or non-dairy butter substitute, molasses, ginger and 2Tbsp pumpkin pie spice. Mix until combined, making sure to scrap the sides and bottom of bowl to incorporate all ingredients. Add eggs one at a time until combined. Add in milk mixture and Lillabee flour packet. Mix until just combined. 
Pour batter into cake pan over top of arranged pears and currants. Bake at 325 for 35-40 min. Since all ovens are slightly different, it is wise to check your cake at 30 min, then every 5 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Make glaze: On stove top, combine pear juice, rum or brandy and 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice blend in a small sauce pan on low heat. Stir frequently until liquid reduces to approximately 2 Tablespoons. Remove from heat and set aside.
Let cool in pan for 15 min. Flip cake over onto a cooling rack. Brush glaze over top and sides of cake while still warm. Let cool completely. 

Transfer to a festive holiday cake plate and head off to the party.

Happy Holidays! Happy Baking!

Lillabee at Lucky’s Market tomorrow!

Hola friends;

Are you a Boulderite?

Ever wanted to try Lillabee’s (almost) world famous brownies & muffins but missed us at the farmers markets or haven’t made it to Tee&Cakes yet?

Well tomorrow (Wednesday Feb 9th) from 4pm-6pm ish(well until we run out), we are going to be handing out samples of our brownies and muffins for all to try at Lucky’s Market in north Boulder . Our lovely Jenny will be there making smiles happen so please stop by and say Hi!.

Plus, you know, grab a brownie bite and a muffin taste. We bet you might even leave with a bag a Lillabee in your hands. (Lets call it enlightened self interest).

See you there!

Everyday, Year-Round, Anytime…(well almost); Lillabee is now at Lucky’s Market!

We are really excited to tell you folks the great news ’cause it is so sweet!

Lillabee & Lucky’s Market, Lucky’s & Lillabee whichever is the former or latter (and we can never remember which is which) the only thing you need to know is that you can now get Lillabee whenever your baking occasion or mood for tasty treats arises.

Lucky’s has been a beloved part of many Boulderites daily market trips since 2004 and  has served the community as our city’s only locally-owned and operated supermarket. They have a fantastic local focus and we are so honored and excited to be on their shelves alongside  so many other locally-grown or locally produced products. Boulder is one of the few cities in the country to have a locally owned grocery store alternative which offers such a fantastic selection and amazing service.  Bo, Collin and everyone at Lucky’s has been so kind and welcoming to us at Lillabee and we hope you support them and tell all of your friends about them as well.

Be on the lookout in the coming weeks and months as well for Lillabee  in the Lucky’s store as we’ll be offering up delectable samples of our (almost) world famous food-allergy friendly baking mixes. We’ll always let you know through Twitter when we are going to be there and what we’ll be serving up to our fans. Our Twitter handle: @lillatweets
