AlphaBakes November 2015

Welcome to November's AlphaBakes. It feels like only yesterday when it was still summer and now we are well into autumn.  Where has the year gone? If you haven't already seen the "W" October round up on Caroline's blog then do head on over to check it out. The random letter generator has selected M as the letter for this month.

Look forward to seeing all your marvellous M entries.  Entry is via the linky tool below and if for some reason it's not working then please email by 25th November 2015.

Quick reminder of the rules....

1. Post your RECIPE on your blog and link it to The More than Occasional Baker andCaroline 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. Entry is via the linky tool below. Alternatively, you can 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. M is great! I can think of loads of M's!

  2. I can't think of a single M, but as I've been working hard all day today, my brain has fried and I can't think of anything very much ;-)

    1. I was stumped initially but now have some ideas. Hope you've managed to rest enough to come up with some ideas :)

  3. I always get stuck as I think this challenge is limited to cakes, but then remember - no its not - coming back later with an submission.

    1. Just seen a tweet so will check out your entry and you're right, not just for baked goods!
