41 Months Going Strong!

Can you believe that Sally’s Baking Challenge has been going strong for 41 months? The first Sally’s Baking Challenge in February 2017 seems like forever ago and I’m just so grateful for the continued dedication and excitement for these monthly baking challenges. 🙂

Participation is growing each month. It’s incredible. Some months see over 2,000! As you can imagine, it’s becoming difficult to properly track the entries on multiple social medias, as well as through email. I’m always afraid we’re missing some and I certainly don’t want to accidentally leave any out.

All Entries Must Be Emailed

My team and I keep a master spreadsheet for each month and we’d love to streamline the process since there’s so much participation! So we don’t miss any entries, we’re narrowing down how to submit your recipe photos. I invite you to share them on social media just as you always have, but in order to formally submit your recipe photo into the running, you must send it via email: [email protected]. With the volume of participation, email is the best way to guarantee it’s properly counted. And we need your email in case you win, too– that’s how you receive your gift card! As we welcome a new baby, I’m taking time off the next few months, so a team member will respond instead of me.

To Sum Up:

  • Feel free to continue to share your #sallysbakingchallenge recipe photos on your social medias, but please make sure you also email us the entry. (Most of you do anyway!) Here’s the email to use: [email protected]
  • We’ll include this updated information in all Sally’s Baking Challenge posts moving forward so there’s no confusion.

Thank you again for your dedication to the monthly baking challenges. This baking tradition wouldn’t be what it is without YOU!

Q: Which Sally’s Baking Challenge has been your favorite?


  1. Wow, you’ve been going on for so long.
    I hope you are proud of yourself.
    Can’t wait to see what happens next.

    1. Hilari @ Sally's Baking Addiction says:

      Thanks, Zoe!

  2. I love that you’re doing this, and as a self-declared “spreadsheet nerd”, I’m even more excited that there’s a spreadsheet involved! I have to pick the June 2020 baking challenge as my favourite. My wife ranked the brownie ice cream sandwiches as one of the top 3 desserts she’s ever had, which is pretty fantastic. I’ll also admit that this was the first month of participating, so my statistics may be slightly skewed…looking forward to July’s challenge, and congrats on the parental leave!

    1. Hilari @ Sally's Baking Addiction says:

      Hi Thomas, thank you so much for your positive feedback! I’m thrilled the brownie ice cream sandwiches were such a hit 🙂 Hope you’ll join us for July’s Baking Challenge!

  3. Congrats on the success of your blog, but more importantly on the impending arrival! Enjoy your time with your children! Try to rest whenever you can!

  4. Letitia Maynard says:

    Wow! Congratulations! I think i have been only doing it for almost two years. It is awesome you dk these to help people test themselves in the kitchen. I enjoy the challenges each month! So much fun and to see if i can do it. Some i have master others i fail miserably. That is the point in trying and trying new things. I love it! My favorite has been the homemade bagels. Thank you.

    1. Hilari @ Sally's Baking Addiction says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Letitia. Thrilled you’ve been participating for almost 2 years- I hope you are proud of yourself! Way to go for continuing to try new things in the kitchen!

  5. My favorite challenge was the checkerboard cake!

  6. The recipe for the best banana cake ever was just posted and I tried it the same day.
    It truly lives up to its name
    Easy to put together and super delicious the cream cheese frosting just as wonderful
    I will make this again snd again can’t wait for my bananas to Ripen

  7. I have to say this is so fun. I make the recipes thinking that your watching me. And, when I say to myself I can’t do this, I thinking your saying yes you can. So I don’t quit. When I see a challenge coming up, I thinking I cannot do that! I going to mess it up, I hear you pushing me saying, yes you can, I showed you the video. Watch it again. Haha. Yup. The Sally’s spirit is in my kitchen.

    1. I love participating and get excited as the month end nears to see what will be next! This is the year I participate all 12 months!!! Congratulations on baby countdown and I know we can’t wait to hear about your new angel!

      1. Hilari @ Sally's Baking Addiction says:

        What a great goal, Lauri!

    2. Hilari @ Sally's Baking Addiction says:

      So sweet, Bonnie. You CAN do it! 🙂 Thanks for your positive feedback and trusting our recipes!

    3. Thank you. I feel that if I give up totally, Sally would be disappointed at me. So, she makes me (in my mind) to keep trying

  8. Hi sally, Thank you so much for all your baking tips. You have helped me so much and my family has benefited greatly. God bless you and your family as you prepare to welcome this precious little one. Take care and stay safe.

    1. Hilari @ Sally's Baking Addiction says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Sandy!

  9. Great, I’m sure this will make things a lot easier for you and your staff 🙂 As for my favorite Challenge recipe…hmm, I’ve only entered twice, but I’ve made more than one of the recipes and my favorites are Sky High Chocolate Mousse Pie, Checkerboard Cake, Apple Hand Pies (with your awesome pastry!), and Chocolate Cake Pops. Honestly, they’re all so good, choosing a favorite is impossible! I love the No-Bake Cheesecake Jars and Brownie Ice Cream Sandwiches too!!

    1. Hilari @ Sally's Baking Addiction says:

      I agree! So hard to choose a favorite. Thanks for your kind words, Erin!
