Happy May! I’m interrupting my regular posting schedule to bring you something that I’m super excited about: The Sugar Spun Run Recipe of the Month!
Some of you may have heard me talk about this in some of my earlier posts, some of you have e-mailed me asking for a “group recipe challenge”, and today it is finally happening!
Each month I will be designating a specific recipe that I challenge all of you to bake along with me. Every one who participates will be entered to win a small prize.
The challenge begins as soon as the recipe is posted tomorrow and ends at the end of the month. If all goes well, we’ll start all over again with a new recipe in June 🤞🏻.
The goal here is to get everyone baking the same recipe, maybe something they haven’t’ tried before, and get talking about it!
May’s Recipe of the Month
This month’s Recipe of the Month is… (drumroll, please)…
I’m starting with a pretty straightforward recipe that I think most of you will have no trouble mastering, and if you guys think it’s too easy we’ll take it up a notch next month.
Oh, and do those shortcake layers look familiar to you? If you’ve already made last week’s homemade biscuits, you’re off to a great start as you’ll find the recipe is very similar (not identical, though!).
I’ll be sharing the full recipe tomorrow, and if you’re an e-mail subscriber you’ll be one of the very first notified.
How to Participate
- Make the recipe and let me know how it turned out for you! This is really it, I just want everyone to make the Strawberry Shortcakes for themselves. As a bonus, if you want to be entered for a chance to win a small prize, you can also…
- Share a photo of your results!
Unfortunately, there’s no way to share photos in my comments, but you can share your photos any of the following ways:
- In my Baker’s Club Facebook Group
- On Instagram tag me @sugarspun_sam and use the hashtag #sugarspunrun
- On Twitter, tag me @sugarspunrun and use the hashtag #sugarspunrun
- If you don’t have any of the above social media but you are an e-mail subscriber, you can also enter by e-mailing me.
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).
Everyone who participates in the Recipe of the Month challenge by sharing a photo will be automatically entered for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card. The winner will be chosen at random and all entries must be submitted by the end of the month.
But wait! Where’s the Recipe!
Update: The Strawberry Shortcake Recipe is now up! Click the link to see the recipe!
Originally I was going to share the Strawberry Shortcake recipe right in this post, but as I started to write and explain this whole Recipe of the Month thing, I realized the post was going to be way too long and was going to be full of way too much different information. I want the actual recipe post to focus just on the recipe, and so bright and early tomorrow morning I will be sharing the full recipe post along with plenty of tips, photos and even a video (if you subscribe to my YouTube channel you can usually actually catch the video before the post goes live). See you guys in 24 hours!
I’m looking forward to getting started, I hope you’re as excited about this as I am!
