Baking With Spirit: The "Go Crazy" Round Up

Due to technical difficulties at the start of the month, I was a little late posting this month's Baking With Spirit Challenge. To make things easier and make up for the shorter time available to enter, I decided to let you all go crazy and bake whatever you wanted as long as it contained alcohol.

Considering how late I posted the challenge, I'm impressed that I got any entries at all! Thanks to those of you who took part. Don't forget that Baking With Spirit has its own Pinterest board full of all previous entries - perfect for boozy inspiration.

If anyone wants to host the challenge for a month, do get in touch (email, facebook, twitter, pigeon?)

And now, without further ado, here are this month's entries:

Laura kicked things off by posting these amazing Cheddar, Ale & Chive Savoury Muffins. Having only recently shown a savoury side on her blog, I'd Much Rather Bake Than..., I hope she continues if she has more like this up her sleeve.

Choclette from Chocolate Log Blog entered these luxurious looking Chocolate Lavender Parfaits. She got the recipe from one of her many chocolate books and tinkered with it to add the lavender flavour. Delightful!

Next is my entry: Chocolate Tart. I added whisky to the pastry base and substituted Greek yoghurt for the usual double cream to produce a slightly more tangy version of the tart.

These Bailey's And Chocolate Miniature Cheesecakes from Pauline's Occasional Baking Adventures are only Pauline's second foray into cheesecake making, but you can hardly tell. They look delicious, and are right up my street since I love Bailey's.

Thanks to all those who entered; come back on Monday to see what I have in store for next month...
