Drum roll, please! The November Baking Challenge is FINALLY being posted. I’ll be announcing Octobers’ baking challenge winner and sharing all of the great photos too! Scroll to the bottom of the post to find out what the monthly baking challenge is going to be! You can check out previous monthly baking challenges too.
I was debating on whether or not I should do the winning coffee cake recipe from my new Easy Cake Cookbook, but it hasn’t been a week for the poll on Facebook and I want to stick by my word of posting it next week. Booooo!
But a recipe from the book will definitely be next month’s baking challenge.
Do you want to see all the entries that I received in the Facebook group for the October baking challenge? Well, you’re in luck because I put together a collage of them.
Did you know last October we made the coffee cheesecake recipe for the monthly baking challenge?
For this month’s recipe, I’m in the process of updating my old Pumpkin Spice Cake Recipe. It’s such an amazing pumpkin cake that it needs to be brought back to life with some pretty pictures. I just love the brown butter frosting too. If you plan on covering the whole cake like in the picture above, you’ll want to triple the frosting recipe. The original recipe is just enough to put a layer between the two layers and on top of the cake.
NOTE: The pumpkin spice recipe only makes two 8-inch cake layers. You’ll need to double the recipe to make four.
October Challenge Winner
This month the winner is Shelley Worthington! 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.
