Bake-off Winner

After much baking, tasting, and deliberation....okay, I baked, we tasted, and scored and it certainly was not a painful process, I'm ready to announce the bake-off winner. I've actually known for days because we scored instantly and I've kept all my notes, but a little thing called life has kept me busy. Plus, I had to come up with a prize. After all, what does one buy a bake-off winner? A pony? A cookbook? (I did like the cookbook idea, but I have no clue what the winner already owned or would enjoy.) A year's supply of monthly jams? A box of Count Chocula? Well, my friends, I finally decided but I'm not going to tell you. I'll let it arrive to the winner first and then I'll share a picture and an explanation of my choice. The logic that rattles around in my head is my own, so I feel the need to provide commentary for my decision.

But first, a word from our sponsor...

Okay, there was no sponsor.

But if I had to choose one it would be Count Chocula. Man, do I love that cereal. Expect a post dedicated to the Count very soon.

Okay, fine, I'll get back to the winner.

With a 1 point advantage, the winner of the MW bake-off is....

TravelingAlissa116's Banana Pineapple Muffins!!

It was such a close race with only 1/2 to 1 point separating the entries. Each recipe had its strong point and appeal. And if I hadn't used a point system, I have no clue how we would have chosen a winner. Thank you to the wonderful women that entered!

So to all you awesome cooks out there, ask yourself this: Are you ready for a throwdown?....Sorry, I've been watching too much Throwdown with Bobby Flay lately.

Happy Baking!
