Bake it like Betty

Every year Betty Crocker hosts a cooking contest that excludes the gluten free mixes, well....hold the gluten, grab your aprons, and start your ovens!

Betty Crocker’s first-ever gluten-free recipe contest, The Baker’s Challenge Gluten Free Recipe Contest, is open for entries Wednesday, June 1st - Thursday, June 30, 2011.  Gluten-free bakers from across the country can enter online at for the chance to win a Grand Prize of $5,000 and the chance to be featured on a Betty Crocker® Gluten Free dessert mix or Bisquick® Gluten Free baking mix package and/or be featured in a Betty Crocker publication!

Entrants will be challenged to create an original gluten free holiday-themed appetizer, bread or dessert recipe, using any Betty Crocker Gluten Free dessert mix or Bisquick Gluten Free baking mix.

Submitted recipes must be entirely gluten free and will be judged on five key categories:
  1. taste
  2. creativity
  3. ease of preparation
  4. consumer appeal
  5. appearance
On or about September 20, 2011, Betty Crocker will announce the 10 selected finalists, who will each receive a Betty Crocker Gluten Free Baking gift basket filled with baking items and Betty Crocker Gluten Free mixes (estimated retail value of $119). The finalists’ recipes will be voted on by the public on, and the finalist whose recipe receives the most votes will be announced as the winner on or around November 1, 2011.

“We’re excited to offer this opportunity to the gluten free community,” said Allison Miller, Marketing Manager, Betty Crocker Gluten-Free Mixes. “The Betty Crocker Baker’s Challenge Gluten Free Recipe Contest is a great way for gluten free bakers to share their innovative creations and show the world how delicious living gluten freely can be.”
