There are now two outposts of this popular bakery named after Betty (also listed as Elizabeth on their website) Ruth Hinton, the mother and grandmother, respectively, of co-owners Linda Hinton Brown and Norrinda Brown Hayat. The mother-and-daughter duo update their family recipes for pound cakes and cupcakes and even name flavors after family members—the Jean’s Road Trip cake, for instance, combines layers of moist red velvet with cream cheese butter cream frosting. In 2011 the original Liberties Walk shop moved a few streets down to a space three times its former size. The other outpost, named Brown Betty Petite, is in Liberty Place.
