4. A surprise twist on traditional baked goods
Traditional baked goods were infused with hidden ingredients, redefining expectations and surprising and delighting eaters. From preserves to vegetables, Bake-Off® Finalists added new flavors and textures to put their own spin on iconic recipes.
"Adding an extra, hidden element to any recipe, especially a dessert, ensures an unexpected and sweet surprise for diners," said Atkins.
Finalists also found new, creative ways to incorporate the brand's refrigerated dough products into their contest submissions. For example, Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookie dough was transformed to create cupcakes while Pillsbury® refrigerated classic pizza crust was used to make homemade bagels.
