Rodelle is excited to announce that we have judged the entries, recipes and stories submitted in the Scrumptious Spring Sweepstakes and we’ve arrived at our winner! Actually, we have selected two winners! With over 100 entries from several countries, the competition was fierce; and, we really appreciate everyone of you who took time to share the contest, enter your recipe and follow along with us as the contest spanned the last few months!
The Rodelle team reviewed the Scrumptious Spring Sweepstakes entries and enjoyed the exotic ingredients that accompanied many of the contest submissions. Rodelle received recipes for everything from a Mimosa Cake made in Hungary to a Tropical Fruit Japanese Cheesecake made in California! Each entry was truly a great reminder of the powerful memories that certain foods and flavors can create for people across the world.
Now…onto the winners!
Lebanon, Tennessee – Low Fat Berry Yogurt Cake
Upon reading Darci’s entry, we knew she was our kind of girl…suggesting cake for breakfast? We’re all over that! Darci’s short and sweet explanation: “This cake is VERY low in fat. It can be eaten as breakfast, brunch or dessert. It has such a nice light and fluffy flavor and is so perfect and beautiful for spring!” And, her stunning picture of the yogurt cake bursting with spring and summer berries? We are in! Darci is thrilled to replace her handheld mixer with the new KitchenAid Artisan Series Stand Mixer and give her arms a break…we just hope that means more cakes coming our way!

Sarah from London, United Kingdom: Karanchi Puri – Coconut Swirls
Sarah shares, “My husband is Indian so I have challenges to make certain sweet desserts for him and the family. I developed this recipe and the good thing about it is that, unlike other Indian sweets, it is not too sweet. The coconut gives a unique taste and with the crunchy bite from the Indian pastry, it is full of flavour and textures. It is fun too because of the design and colour and you can change the colour of the coconut to whatever you desire. I am going to be 57 soon so I am very happy with my achievement with this recipe that I adapted to suit the taste buds of everyone including my children and grandchildren who eat them straight from the oven.”
We loved that Sarah took on the challenge of creating a dessert that her whole family could love and was gracious enough to share her recipe with us for this Indian sweet! And, as our first winner from the United Kingdom, we made sure Sarah was ready to take on such an award. Sarah wrote back with much excitement, saying “My children and grandchildren are jumping with joy it is quite a scene.!” We know that Sarah and her family will be extra excited to recieve her new KitchenAid Artisan Series Stand Mixer and the great big bundle of Rodelle Vanilla Goodies. And, with the upcoming arrival of our Rodelle Vanilla Beans in Costcos, it will be like a regular takeover of the baking scene on the other side of the pond!
