Thank you to everyone who participated in May’s Recipe of the Month! We’re going to go over May’s recipe below and I’ll announce the winner, but first, it’s a new month and with that comes the June Recipe of the Month….
Angel Food Cake!
Don’t be deceived by it’s simple, frosting-less appearance, Angel Food Cake* is my favorite dessert, it has a soft, light-as-air melt in your mouth texture that has me reaching for it over a slice of chocolate or vanilla cake every time. Tomorrow we will dig in to everything you need to know about making your own light and fluffy Angel Food Cake completely from scratch.
Also, it requires about 10-12 egg whites, so, uh, you might want to pick up some eggs and set them out to get to room temperature in advance!
What is the Recipe of the Month?
In case you missed last month’s intro, here are the details.
- Tomorrow I will publish the full “Recipe of the Month” for June (complete with a step-by-step video… are you subscribed to my YouTube channel?)
- I’d like for you to make the recipe for yourself and let me know how it turned out for you!
- Share a photo of your results and tag me #sugarspunrun in my Facebook group, on Instagram, or on Twitter or you can e-mail it to me. Everyone who participates will be entered for the chance to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card. Make sure you tag me so that I’m able to see your photo!
Select reader photos will also be featured on my Instagram account, on Facebook, and in next month’s re-cap (if for any reason you don’t want me to re-share your photo, please let me know with your submission).
Last Month’s Recipe Re-Cap
Those of you who participated know that the Recipe of the Month for May was Strawberry Shortcake!
I was so pleased with how many of you participated and I really loved seeing everyone’s photos! Everyone who made my Strawberry Shortcake Recipe and shared a photo (and tagged me, so I could see it!) was entered for the chance to win an Amazon gift card.
Here are a handful of the entries that I received. Can I say again how much I enjoy seeing all of your photos??
A winner was chosen at random from all of the entries, and May’s winner is Vicki S.! Congratulations, Vicki!
I want to hear from you!
What kind of recipe would you like to see next month? Would you like something simpler that doesn’t require as much technique, like perhaps a fun cookie flavor? Or something even more complicated that requires more technique, like choux pastry?
Let me know in the comments or bring the conversation over to my Facebook group “Baker’s Club”. This is a great place that anyone can join where you can talk to other bakers about the challenge or just to share your recent bakes (I love seeing your photos!) or any other general baking questions you might have.
*Full disclosure, I’ve been using the same Angel Food Cake recipe for years and it is actually already live on my site, so you actually don’t have to wait until tomorrow to make your own. However, tomorrow the post will be re-published with new photos, much more in-depth information, and a full video to be as helpful as possible!
