What is Sally’s Baking Challenge?

Sally’s Baking Challenge is a monthly series on my website. I started this monthly baking challenge in 2017 to connect with readers, create a positive baking community, and challenge myself (and readers) in the kitchen. On the 1st day of each month, I share a new Sally’s Baking Challenge recipe and encourage readers to bake that recipe during the month. The point is to help you learn new kitchen skills, get creative, and have fun! On the last day of the month, a winner is randomly selected. Find details and answers to FAQs over on the Sally’s Baking Challenge page.

Sally’s Baking Challenge is taking a break in 2023, so you will find years 2017-2022 below.

Use this list to find all of the previous baking challenge recipes.

Each recipe now has the participants’ photos included!

As you see, the 1st baking challenge recipe was published in February 2017, and at that time, I had a few dozen readers participate. Now my team and I receive thousands of entries every month. It’s thrilling to know that bakers from all over the world are making the same recipe each month. Maybe we’re not physically together, but we’re certainly having a collective experience in the kitchen.
