AlphaBakes April 2013

I hope everyone had a good Easter weekend. Welcome to April's AlphaBakes, if you haven't read March's round up, please head over to Caroline's blog to check out the exciting "I" entries. Now I know we've had a few difficult letters in a row so I was really pleased when I clicked on the random letter generator and it gave me .... A  Get your thinking caps on and start baking/cooking!

The usual rules apply, a quick reminder below. The most important is to email your entries to by midnight (GMT) 25th April 2013.

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 each 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! :)


  1. almost too easy!... i'll really enjoy it this month x

  2. "A" really has spoilt us for choice and if I'd had more time would have made almond macaroons or used up my apricot jam in something, but as usual I ran out so had to go with an old recipe I hadn't got around to publishing. It's a good one though.

    1. I know what it's like -I'm always running out of time! Thanks for entering this month.
