Welcome To 'Laine's Bake Shop!
We manufacture all natural baked goods as our way of tackling chronic unemployment, recidivism, and wealth inequality in the hardest hit areas of Chicago.
Rachel’s Grandpa Lane grew up in the Bronzeville and Oakland neighborhoods during their heydays. Grandpa Lane loves sharing stories and pictures of the neighborhood’s rich cultural and commercial history. Rachel and her husband Jaryd are now proud homeowners in the Oakland neighborhood.
Rachel’s mother Elaine introduced her to a love of baking. It all started with a brownie recipe that Elaine taught Rachel during a homeschool math lesson on fractions. Apparently, something clicked between the math and the baking because Rachel went on to build a career in Accounting and Finance before opening 'Laine's!
“Awesome peach cobbler. Also highly recommend the red velvet cheesecake brownie.”

“We ordered custom donuts from ‘Laine’s for an office event. Rachel was super responsive and helped to create donuts with a watercolor splash that perfectly matched our theme. The donuts were delish and wonderful. We will definitely order from the bakery again!!”

“Just tried some of the delicious items they offer. Wow! I had the banana pudding and a peach cobbler. Both items were served in cute little mason jars to go. I couldn’t which dessert tasted better. The banana pudding was made from scratch and was divine! The peach cobbler was just sweet enough and the peaches were not mushy or over cooked.”
