With the holiday season upon us, Oprah has just released her 2016 Favorite Things list, and Tyler staple is on it, Janie’s Cakes!

According to our news partner KLTV.com, Oprah said, “Texas-based bakery owner Janie Clapp makes pound cake using only natural ingredients, just as her great-grandmother taught her. But Grandma never filled her cake with coffee-toffee buttercream or raspberry curd! Hands down, it’s the best pound cake I’ve ever had.”

Of course, Tylerites have known this secret for nearly three decades. The bakery responded on Facebook:

We are yelling from the roof top…the best secret ever. We are Oprah’s Favorite Things 2016! Pick up O, The Oprah Magazine ion Nov 8 and check us out! #OprahsFavoriteThings

Here’s a look at the Texas Country Reporter’s profile of Janie Clapp, owner of Janie’s Cakes, in her former location. She is now located in Downtown Tyler on Front Street.
