All New Pillsbury Bake-Off® Contest Now Accepting Entries

Put on your best apron and compete to win $1 million in dough! The freshly redesigned 46 th Pillsbury Bake-Off ® Contest is now open for entries at www.BakeOff.com.

For the first time in the 64-year history of the nation’s premier cooking competition, America will vote from among entries selected by the Bake-Off ® Kitchens to determine all 100 recipes to vie for the grand prize. Those 100 finalists will compete at the Bake-Off ® Contest finals, November 10-12, 2013, at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

To give creative home cooks more chances to enter, the Bake-Off ® Contest now features three recipe categories with separate entry periods. To encourage simpler, original recipes, submissions must include no more than seven ingredients, not including table salt, ground black pepper and water, and take 30 minutes or less to prepare, not including baking or cooling time.

“We’re excited to roll out changes to the ever-classic Pillsbury Bake-Off ® Contest,” said Jann Atkins, Bake-Off ® Kitchens Manager. “We know consumers crave recipes that are delicious, yet easy to make, so adding an ingredient limit allows us to provide inspiration for even the busiest families and novice cooks. And with voters selecting all 100 finalists, we hope to rally excitement and friendly competition across the country as people choose their favorites.”

Other sponsors of the 46 th Bake-Off ® Contest are The J.M. Smucker Company, GE Appliances and Green Giant.
