MARCH BAKING CHALLENGE
Welcome to the 50th Sally’s Baking Challenge!
March 2021 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: French Macarons
Can you believe we’ve been doing this for 50 months? Does anyone remember participating in the very first Sally’s Baking Challenge back in 2017?
This is a very exciting month, so I’m assigning a highly requested challenge recipe for the celebration. French Macarons have been the #1 requested Sally’s Baking Challenge recipe for the past few years. Do they require precision and concentrated effort? Absolutely. Are they manageable for home bakers? Absolutely. I can’t wait for you to try them!

Let’s Review the February Baking Challenge
February 2020 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Chocolate Soufflé
All of your chocolate soufflés were incredible. I was so happy to see well over 1,000 bakers try their hand at this classic French dessert, many of you baking them for the 1st time ever. The general feedback was that making chocolate soufflé is much more manageable than you ever realized, which is really what these baking challenges are all about!
One of our favorite recipe reviews came from reader Jessica:
“This recipe is fantastic!! I was nervous to try something like this, but the recipe made each step really clear and I was able to successfully make a dessert I never thought I could. The video also helped a lot; I watched it several times to make sure I understood the techniques involved. I used 7 ounce ramekins because that’s what I have, and they turned out great. I will definitely make these again!”
We gathered as many chocolate soufflé emailed photo entries as we could and included them below.
Challenge winner for February is Jennifer and she has been notified. 🙂
