Hello June Baking Challenge! It's that time of the month again where I announce the monthly baking challenge for all to make. I"m thinking of something that's tangy and refreshing. Scroll to the bottom of the post to find out what this month's baking challenge recipe is.
I just finished up shooting a video for the June baking challenge recipe and I can't wait to get it edited and share it with everyone. Did anyone else think May was a long month? It seemed to really drag for me, but maybe it's been because of too much going on and the lack of motivation.
Oh well, we're onto June now. We just celebrated my son's 8th birthday yesterday. I didn't shed a tear, but I did look at all of his baby photos. Now onto dreading summer vacation as it's going to be here at the end of the month. (That's pretty late, right?)
May’s baking challenge ended with 4 entries. They all looked fantastic and I appreciate the ladies that entered. Take a look for yourself!
Monthly Baking Challenge
For this month’s recipe, I picked a key lime cheesecake recipe. For this recipe, I didn't use freshly squeezed key lime juice. Instead, I recommend using Nellie and Joe Key Lime Juice. It has great flavor and doesn't have a plastic taste to it.
It's slightly different than my other cheesecakes. If you look at my strawberries and cream cheesecake or even the triple chocolate cheesecake, I add sour cream and heavy cream. Instead of adding heavy cream and sour cream in this key lime cheesecake, we're adding sweetened condensed milk.
May Challenge Winner
I randomly selected a winner using random.org. The winner for May is Melissa Costa. She will receive the $50 Amazon gift card! I’ll be notifying her in the Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt VIP group just in case she doesn’t see it in the email.
