A Mommie Helen’s Bakery favorite: homemade sweet potato pie made with sugary yams combined with secret spices, some vanilla and a buttery and flaky crust!

This peach cobbler is made from scratch – some customers prefer the crust on the bottom AND top! 


This 13-year business started off as a family tradition of passing down delicious homemade baked goods and is now a favorite of many communities and even athletes and celebrities! Mommie Helen’s Bakery is owned by Dorothy Pryor Rose, where two of her daughters also help her run the business. It was named after Dorothy’s mother, Helen, who the Inland Empire community would refer to as “Mommie Helen.” From Shaquille O’Neal to James Worthy, her homemade baked goods get everyone asking for more. Mommie Helen’s specialties are old-fashioned sweet potato pie made with sugary yams, peach cobbler from scratch, pecan pie and even red velvet cake. The piecrusts are made flaky, buttery and delicious! How much do people like Mommie Helen’s you might ask?


”Let me put it this way. In a home of 2-3 people, they usually ask for 6 [pies],” said Rose.
