SEPTEMBER BAKING CHALLENGE
September 2020 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread
I’m using this month to focus on an easier recipe since I know some of you are starting a new routine with children learning at home or back in school. This is also a wonderful recipe if you want children to help out in the kitchen– my toddler LOVED whisking the ingredients and sprinkling the cinnamon sugar on top. Though above all else, who doesn’t love a comforting quick bread? I think we could all use a soul-satisfying treat this month.

Let’s Review the August Baking Challenge
August 2020 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: Breakfast Pastries
One statement covers everything: I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! I know many of you felt nervous to try the breakfast pastries at home. I mean let’s be honest– it’s not an easy looking recipe. But by taking your time and not rushing the process, many of you were pleasantly surprised (and delighted!) with recipe success. I knew you could handle this. There were so many beautiful, delicious, and creative pastries this month. Some bakers tried different shapes and fillings, too. A few I loved seeing included: individual cranberry cream cheese pastries, mini pastry braids with cherry filling, and apple pie filling with crumble topping. Your creativity and courage inspire me every month. 🙂
One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Megan:
“Wow! This is might be my new favorite Sally recipe. Had a blast making them and really couldn’t believe how good they turned out considering how easy they were to make. We love cream cheese danishes so all were filled with cream cheese and topped with assorted jams, fresh berries or mini chocolate chips. Already thinking about all the endless flavors to try. Can’t wait to add them to the rotation and share them during the holidays! Another stellar recipe!”
We gathered as many breakfast pastry photo entries as we could and included them below. (Email is the only way to guarantee your photo will be included!)
Challenge winner for August is Thomas and he has been notified. 🙂
