Let’s Review the January Baking Challenge

January 2022 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Honey Wheat English Muffins

January baking challenges are always my favorite because I like to focus on baking bread– a welcome comfort after the sugary sweetness of holiday baking. My team and I always see a large volume of participation in January which shows many share our same sentiments! Homemade English muffins were a new recipe for me to tackle and your feedback said the very same– plus, many of you tackled your fear of yeast which is always something to celebrate! A lot of bakers used this challenging recipe as a fun indoor activity for snowy days or as a weekend project with your families.

Gathering together to try something new, comforting, and delicious. Is there anything better? 🙂

Thank you so much for participating! We gathered as many honey wheat English muffins emailed photo entries as we could and included them below.

Reader Questions and Reviews

  1. Hi! I have been participating in the Baking Challenge for several months now, and haven’t received a confirmation email nor have any of my pictures been used. I am COMPLETELY fine with both of those things! I just wanted to make sure I shouldn’t be worried that my entries were not being received? I know you receive an overwhelming amount of entries, so I am by no means fretting, I just wanted to double check to be sure!

    1. Hi Lindsey! Are you submitting it to the right email address? We reply to every single emailed entry. I checked my spam and don’t see anything. Can you send my team and I an email so we can make sure it’s coming through properly? Sorry for any trouble!

  2. Hi Sally,
    I submitted my English Muffin photo yesterday and didn’t see it with the other contestant photos. I tried to submit the photo in the proper area to submit but when I clicked on “email” to send photo the page is not opening so I had to email it a different way. Please check this, there may be other entries unable to submit properly. Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Tina! We have your entry in our January spreadsheet, so it was counted. It looks like team member Michelle replied to your email yesterday. But there was definitely a fluke and your photo didn’t make it onto a collage. There may have been a problem downloading it, but we will absolutely triple check this should it happen to anyone again! Thank you for letting us know and participating!

      1. Tina, we actually just found your photo in one of the collages. It’s in the 41st collage (the second to last one at the bottom) — hard to spot for sure but these collages are the only way we can get everyone’s photos on the site!!

  3. I sent my photo in yesterday – and I didn’t get a response. Can you check to make sure it went through, please?

    1. Hi Audrey, my team did some digging and found your email in our spam folder! Oh no! We completely missed it and I apologize for that. We will add you to our spreadsheet for February and if you’d like to also join the February Baking Challenge, you will be entered twice. (We will also begin checking our spam before the end of month too!)

  4. Obviously this challenge captivated many bakers. And when have I ever enjoyed scrutinizing the photo entries for my idea of perfect size and color? What fun! Thank you Sally, great choice.

  5. This was my first baking challenge and it was definitely worth it! The icing set a little fast for me. As far as flavor goes, RICH! If I ever do these again, I might do half sizes! They sealed surprisingly well and kept a great brownie-like texture after baking.
