It’s chilly here in New York and we’re well into the month of September. It’s about time that I announce the September Baking Challenge, isn’t it? 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.
We had a pretty great turn out for the August Baking Challenge. We had five of the best zucchini bars entries. One entry had sprinkles that hinted to the ingredients and another one had substituted the oil in the recipe for applesauce which is perfect for a lighter variation!
For this month’s recipe, since we’re kicking off Fall and all, I’m going to pick the Pumpkin Earthquake Cake that I just recently posted on the blog. It’s an easy recipe using a spice cake mix that’s doctored up into a pumpkin cake. Swirled in the cake is a cream cheese and butter mixture AND chocolate chips.
August Challenge Winner
This month the winner is Megan Gagnon! 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.
