Blue-Ribbon Muffins

The August 7-11 cooking camp focused on baking for the Montgomery County Agricultural Fair, in addition to preparing and eating a simple, healthy lunch each day.

Since only one person could take credit for each entry, we drew lots, because everyone helped to make all the baked goods. As a result, six campers competed with seven entries. Campers baked:

  • Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
  • Chocolate Fudge with Pretzels
  • Snickerdoodles
  • Banana Loaf Cake
  • Pecan Caramel Bar Cookies

It was so fun! We had a blast. Each day, we set aside the six most perfect specimens for the fair, and then we divided the rest for campers to take home and share.

Today Chef Sheila received an email from the mother of the 8-year-old girl, who won first place for muffins. YAY!!!

Here is a link to the recipe for Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins, from Chef Sheila’s cousin, Edith Benthem Bain.
