Enter Betty Crocker's Baker's Challenge Gluten Free Recipe Contest (plus giveaway) #MyBlogSpark

It's no secret that I'm a fan of Betty Crocker's Gluten free mixes.  I love the convenience of having cake mixes and brownie mixes since I'm not that good of a scratch baker.  I actually did wonder why there wasn't a gluten free contest, like the Pillsbury Bake-off and then recently, I found out that Betty Crocker does have a gluten free recipe contest!  Since I am always looking for inspired desserts, I was more than a little excited.  Do you need a little inspiration now?  Check out the gluten free recipes at

The's Challenge

What type of recipes are they seeking for the's Challenge?  Despite the heat of the summer, they're looking for your holiday recipes. It's never too early to plan ahead for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Eating gluten free can sometimes be a challenge around the holidays for sure so the more lead time, the better.  More specifically, they want your holiday recipes using a Betty Crocker gluten free dessert mix or Bisquick's gluten free baking mix.

Gluten free baking/dessert mixes to use in the Baker's Challenge!

Prizes:  What you can win?

One fantastic baker will receive $5,000, plus a gluten free gift basket.  Ten other finalists will receive a gluten free gift basket.  Hurry though:  the contest ends June 30! Finalists will be announced in September, so get your favorite gluten free mix out and start working on your recipe today.


Thanks to the sponsor, Betty Crocker, via MyBlogSpark, one lucky winner will receive a gift pack of the same items that I did - that being what is pictured above.  That includes one of each of the four gluten free dessert mixes from Betty Crocker, plus one box of Bisquick's gluten free mix.

This contest will run through June 15, 2011 at 11:59 PM Eastern time, with the winner being selected by on or about June 16, 2011.  You must be a US resident and 18 or older to enter.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond to my email seeking shipping information, else I will have to chose a different winner.  Therefore, it is imperative that I have a way to reach you via email.  Please leave your email in the mandatory comment or note that your email is available in your profile.
