I am delighted to announce that we have a prize sponsor for the Great Irish Bake Off.
Starting this week (Week 2 of the Challenge), Dr Oetker Baking Ireland will sponsor a prize of a hamper containing some very pretty goodies for the winner as selected by our judges.
I’m over the moon that Dr Oetker has generously offered to come on board and look forward to being able to share the baking happiness over the next few weeks.
So to recap the Week 2 details are as follows:
This is a blog/tweet hop but is not restricted to bloggers or tweeters. In order to enter you must either tweet me ( @wholesomeIE ) using the hastag #GIrishBO your picture of the recipe of the week or email me your photo. If you’re a blogger, please also email me wholesomecook(at)gmail(dot) com details of your blog so that I can link to your website and give you full credit.
Week 2 Challenge
Next week’s challenge is an Eight Strand Plaited Loaf. Click on the name to be directed to the BBC Food website for the exact recipe. As we have a bread recipe to follow, can you please forward 3 pictures for the judges to evaluate.
- An overhead shot so that they can see the plaiting.
- A shot of the underneath of the bread (no hiding sticky bottoms thank you very much).
- A cross section of the slice for bake quality.
As you bake in the week ahead use the hashtag for advice and any questions. It was very useful to everyone who attempted the Rum Baba from last week’s challenge. For example we all discovered that the 1 hour proving time recommended needed to be doubled!
Remember this is a bit of fun to challenge your baking skills. Don’t take it too seriously but do enjoy yourself and we are really looking forward to seeing your efforts this week!
Please note: This is not a sponsored blogpost.
My opinions are my own and I am not paid to give them.
Dr Oetker Baking Ireland are sponsoring a prize per week for the duration of the challenge.
This is for my readers only (I am exempting myself from being eligible for a prize) and I have received no payment or benefit in kind to arrange the competition.
The competition is open only to residents of the Republic of Ireland.
