Alphabakes - June 2014

Welcome to our second run-through of the alphabet with Alphabakes, which started with A in April, moved to E in May - and now for the third letter we're staying in the first part of the alphabet. The letters are chosen at random so that's a bit of a coincidence - this month the letter we are baking with is

Remember, you can either make a recipe beginning with D, or use an ingredient (preferably one of the main ones) beginning with D.

If you're stuck for ideas, you could have a look at the round-up for the last time we had D, back in January 2013! I quite fancy having a go at doughnuts myself....

If you haven't participated before, here's all the information you need:

1. Post your recipe on your blog and link it to The More than Occasional Baker and Caroline Makes, stating the relevant month's host. If you do not have a blog, email us a picture and a brief description of your entry which we will include in the round-up at the end of the month.

2. You can use your own recipe or someone else's recipe. The recipe can be sweet, savoury or a mixture! Anything goes as long as the random letter is predominantly featured in the recipe as one of the main ingredients or flavours or in the name of the bake itself (i .e . not as a garnish , or using 'flour' for the letter F!) You can also republish old posts/recipes but you must include the information for this challenge as stated in these rules.

3. Add the logo to your post and add 'alphabakes' as a label to your post.

4. Email your entries to by midnight (GMT) 25th of the month. Please include:
  • Your name (that you want included in the round up or we will use the name of your blog)
  • Your blog post URL
  • Recipe title
  • Photo of recipe (to be included in the round up)
5. You can submit as many entries as you like.

6. You do not have to participate every month to join in.

7. You may submit your entry to other challenges as long as it complies with their rules.

8. If you use twitter, please use the tag #alphabakes and mention @bakingaddict and @Caroline_Makes. We will retweet all those that we see.

9. Have fun! :)
