Join the fight against breast cancer with your kitchen skills in the 2010 Fleischmann’s Yeast “Bake for the Cure” at the North Dakota State Fair on Friday July 23rd. Fleischmann’s Yeast is providing a generous $375 in cash prizes for home bakers plus $3,000 in national grand prizes. The Bake for the Cure competition is a great way to support the cause and create delicious recipes. There are two categories: traditional or whole grain yeast breads and baked goods. Make any flavor or shape of baked good using any type of Fleischmann’s Yeast. Themes and decorative presentations are encouraged.
The first category awards $150 for first place, $75 for second and $50 for third. In the second category, $100 is awarded for the “Best Whole Grain Bread” that contains at least 50% whole grains. Qualifying bread recipes in the second category use whole wheat flour, rye flour, and/or other whole grain ingredients (oatmeal, flax seed, bran cereals, bulgur, etc). All-purpose or bread flour should be limited to 50% or less of the flour in these whole grain recipes.
For each entry at all contests nationwide, ACH Food Companies Inc. will donate $10 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure on behalf of its Fleischmann’s Yeast brand.
All entries will be judged on flavor (40%), presentation (40%), and texture (20%). Each person can enter one per category. Contestants of all ages are welcome.
This recipe contest is hosted exclusively at 52 state and county fairs. From the 1st place winners of both categories, ACH Test Kitchens will pick one grand prize winning recipe from each of three regions: Northern, Central and Southern. These national grand prize winners will be selected and announced after the 2010 fair season (January 2011).
