It’s National Baking Week here in Britain this week, the objective of which is to get Britain baking and sharing! You can bake and share at home, bake and share at school or bake and share at work. Of course, here at The 21st Century Housewife it doesn’t take much encouragement to get us baking, but I love the idea of an initiative to take the mystery out of this wonderful home craft and provide loads of inspiration for great ideas on how to get started.
I’ll be posting lots of baking recipes on the site this week, and referencing other sites where you can find even more ideas and inspiration. And of course, the National Baking Week website is a great place to start. There are articles, recipes, games, ways for you to Bake a Difference, and even competitions.
Speaking of competitions, the nice people at Pyrex have offered to sponsor a giveaway just for readers of The 21st Century Housewife and The 21st Century Housewife’s Kitchen. You could win a selection of Pyrex non-stick bakeware and prepware worth £50! All you need to do to enter is email me by clicking here with the words ‘Pyrex Giveaway’ in the subject line of the email. The giveaway closes on Thursday so get your entries in quick!
After you have entered, head on over to the National Baking Week website, grab your apron and get started baking something yummy to celebrate. Baking is a wonderful stress reducer and a great way to treat family and friends - so come on, let’s get baking and sharing!!
The 21st Century Housewife was not paid for this post. Pyrex and the National Baking Week website are supplying the giveaway prize. Contest is open to UK residents only and closes Thursday 21st October. Winner will be drawn at random on Friday 22nd October.
