Baking With Spirit: September 2014

After many years of enjoying the smell (and my friends enduring me asking to sniff theirs), lately I have acquired a taste for beer. This has got me in the mood for baking with it, and experimenting a little bit more.

I wonder how many of you have learned to love a particular alcoholic beverage over time? I think this would make a fun theme for the challenge, so I'm going to ask you to bake with an acquired taste. I would prefer the acquired taste to be alcoholic, but if you've genuinely loved everything since your first sip I will allow some food choices too. The dish still has to include alcohol, though!

Here are the rules:

  • Bake anything sweet or savoury that contains alcohol and follows the acquired taste theme.
  • Post about it and email me a link and photo at cakeoftheweek@hotmail.co.uk
  • The deadline is the 28th
  • Tweet me @cakeoftheweek to have your post shared, and don't forget to share this page!
Don't forget to check out last month's round up, where I let you all run free and go crazy.

I'm linking this up to the Food Blog Diary, which lists a lot of the food challenges and giveaways that go on in the foodie blogosphere every month.


  1. I'm really hoping I have the time to enter this one because it has the potential to be really interesting. Brilliant idea Janine =)

  2. Oohhh...this could be so interesting. I learnt to like red wine over the last few years only. After having non during pregnancy, I just started enjoying it in major moderation (still breastfeeding). I really, really hope I can find the time to make something to contribute.

    1. Red wine could be very interesting! I hope you manage to take part.

  3. I've just blogged a recipe which fits this theme :) I think this is the first time I've ever entered this challenge - I don't often bake with spirits!


Did you try this recipe? Let me know what you think! Comments are always appreciated. Unless they are spam.
