Betty Crocker Gluten Free Recipe Contest and Giveaway

Betty Crocker's having a gluten-free recipe contest and you're invited! Betty's home company, General Mills, is sponsoring its first Baker's Challenge Gluten-Free Recipe Contest and inviting bakers to submit an original, holiday-themed recipe over at its Glutenfreely website. The recipe must incorporate one of the Betty Crocker gluten-free baking mixes (Bisquick, Brownies, Chocolate Cake, Yellow Cake and Chocolate Chip Cookie mixes).


The contest deadline is June 30, 2011, so you have a fortnight to cook up an awesome appetizer, bread or dessert recipe. Prizes include a $5,000 Grand Prize and a chance to be featured on a Betty Crocker package or publication. The top ten finalists will also receive baking gift baskets and be featured on the GlutenFreely website. For more details about the contest and to check out a 20% savings on the Betty Crocker gluten-free mixes during the month of June, be sure to visit GlutenFreely.

I'm thinking of baking up something revolving our beloved tradition of passing around a Chocolate Orange on Christmas Eve and reciting a lovely little story about giving that we started after my youngest was in preschool. The preschool owner sent every kid home with this sweet story and we've been incorporating it in our holiday traditions ever since.  Maybe instead of just whacking this mock orange up into segments and passing it around I can develop a chocolate and orange flavored dessert. We'll see...

I am pleased to be able to offer a giveaway for my American readers of a prize pack containing one box of GF Bisquick and the four Betty Crocker gluten-free dessert mixes.



To enter the giveaway, leave a comment below telling me what your favorite holiday dessert is by June 19, 2011, midnight Eastern Standard Time. I'll randomly select a winner after this deadline.

Disclosure: I received a prize pack of these five gluten-free baking mixes from the General Mills Food Company through the MyBlogSpark program myself and have one to offer to a Crispy Cook reader as a giveaway.

Since discovering my gluten intolerance, we have made it a tradition to have a "buche de noel" for Christmas dinner dessert. My other favorite is a flourless chocolate torte.

I haven't seen these gluten free baking mixes, how great! My favorite holiday dessert is German hazelnut Christmas cookies. My family makes them every year!

These GF mixes would definitely come in handy with holiday baking. I don't have a favorite holiday dessert, but we have a special family cheesecake we make for birthdays and other special family occasions. It's absolutely amazing.
