Bake something fun, share it with the world, and you could win a fancy new gold loaf pan
Thank you to all of you who participated in last month's Bake Club Challenge and sent in photos of delicious looking Black Forest Cakes and Red Velvet Cakes and Cupcakes! Many of you outdid yourself last month, turning out cakes that would look right at home in any gourmet bakery.
Also, I've been so happy to see so many of you baking with your children! I have many memories of baking with my kiddos when they were younger. It's fantastic to see photos of many of your children baking recipes I've also baked with mine.
The winner of this month’s challenge has been chosen and will be announced with their permission once they have been notified.
Ready for the next challenge????
the March 2020 bake club challenge recipe:
I can't remember the last time I let March go by without making this cake. We've never been the kind of people who go all out for St. Patrick's Day. We're more the kind of people who like to find somewhere interesting to sit and watch all the people who love to get dressed up and party hard in the name of all things Irish and green.
However, there is one thing that everyone in my house can count on every March 17th, and that's the food! A feast of Corned Beef and Cabbage and Irish Apple Cake is seriously one of my favorite meals of all time. It's a given every March, but I usually also make it sometime in the Fall, when the weather is getting all crisp and cool and apples are at their peak.
Irish Apple Cake is one of my favorite cakes because it's not overly sweet, and somehow manages to be both light and substantial at the same time. It's hearty without feeling heavy. The custard sauce is optional, but I beg you to try it. It's incredibly simple to make and the texture of this cake is just perfect for soaking it up, bite after delicious bite.
