King Arthur Flour and Cookbook Giveaway

I have a delightful surprise for you today! Do you like to bake with quality ingredients? Would you like to improve your baking skills? I have just the treat for you! I have a special giveaway to offer.

King Arthur Flour is located in my home state of Vermont. They have been in business for over 200 years!  Their flour is the number one selling  flour in New England! Here's why:

1. They have an outstanding commitment to teach baking skills. They have ongoing classes which are a baker's dream.

2. Their Flour is the highest quality I have ever used.

3. Their recipes, and entertaining approach to sharing their knowledge is fabulous!

4. They are 100% Employee owned, and take pride in their work.


 - They have a store, cafe and cooking school .
 
- They are open every day and bake every day!

- Wouldn't you love to try their chocolate croissants?

- They offer baking classes to all ages, from children to professionals!


I have been using their flour for many years.  I remember getting ready to bake whole wheat bread for the first time. I was a young mother with small children. I already knew how to make white bread, but wanted to try the healthy, wheat version.

I went to the supermarket and found a bag of King  Arthur Whole Wheat Flour. There was an easy recipe on the back, and lots of encouraging information - like their quality guarantee, and their instructions for storing the flour.

When I baked my first batch of bread, using this flour, I was hooked for life! If you want delicious baked goods, you need to use quality ingredients.

I recently received a package which contained 3 bags of flour, a bag of baking mix, and an enormous cookbook. I was so excited!



1. Five Pound Bag of King Arthur All-Purpose Flour (Item #3005) - $4.50

I used this to make pizza, muffins, and cookies.

2. Five Pound Bag of King Arthur Whole Wheat Flour (Item #3015) - $4.50

I used this to make pizza, muffins and cookies. I used this combined with the All Purpose Flour at times, or just the whole wheat as the only flour.

3. Five Pound Bag of King Arthur White Whole Wheat Flour (Item #3311) - $4.50

I used this to make delicious chocolate chip cookies! I will use some today to make a batch of delicious Soft Pretzels!

4. Three Pound Bag of Whole Grain Baking Mix (Item #3391) - $9.95

This has two recipes on the back. One is for pancakes and the other is for biscuits. I made the biscuits. They were so easy to mix up! I made a batch of 8 large biscuits and my family loved them!  One batch of biscuits used only a small portion of the mix. I plan to make more biscuits to go with Beef Stew this week.

5. King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking Book (Item #2722) - $29.95

I have dreamed of getting my very own cookbook from King Arthur! Their free recipes on their website, and on the back of their flours is wonderful, but I wanted more! I was so happy to receive this cookbook for keeps!  

It is full of detailed instructions on baking. The recipes are clear and easy to follow. The ingredients they use are easy to find.

By following their helpful tips, scientific baking facts, and guidelines, you will learn how to be a fabulous, confident baker!

The book contains chapters on Breakfast foods, Quick Breads (and scones!), Cobblers, Flatbreads, Yeast Breads, Sourdough, Cookies, Pie, Pastry and more. There is also a glossary and an index. It contains over 600 pages of pure baking delight!

How would you like a chance to win some King Arthur Flour and a Cookbook? You'll receive exactly what I just described -  

 * 3 (5 pound) bags of King Arthur Flour,
 * 1 (3 pound) Bag of King Arthur Whole Grain Baking Mix,
 * 600 + page King Arthur Whole Grain Baking Cookbook.

All you have to do is leave me a comment, telling me how you learned to bake.

I learned to bake in my grandmother's kitchen. She taught me how to bake cookies, cakes, cobblers, crisps, pies and biscuits. Bread I learned on my own and it is my favorite thing to bake. I love working with the dough and watching the bread rise. Nothing smells better than freshly baked bread! Yum!

OH, and I also am a fan on Facebook. :-)

Vickie said...

I've often read about King Arthur Flours. I'd love to try some.

Don't laugh but my husband taught me to bake :) For many many years he was our bread and cookie maker. Now the kids say they can't tell the difference between mine and his...finally LOL Persistence!

Rodna said...

Since I don't know a lot about baking, my knowledge is limited, but I will try.
My first tip would be that if you don't know what you are doing or how to do something, see if you can get someone else to show you how. It is fun to work with a friend, and I think you can learn a lot in person.

I love King Arthur's flour, especially the white wheat---great even for things like biscuits and muffins.

I learned to bake by watching cooking shows on PBS---my folks liked to watch cooking shows---and standing at my mom's elbow in the kitchen.

I'm a self-taught baker. I frequently use recipes from the back of packages because they have been developed to showcase the product, so they should be thoroughly tested, right? My first whole wheat bread was made more than 30 years ago using King Arthur flour and I still love it.

I learned to cook from my mother. She cooks/bakes everything from scratch. It's all delish, but her pies are amazing! When she takes one to a church event, people almost come to blows trying to get a slice of her pie!

I love King Arthur Bread Flour. Our stores here have stopped carrying it, though...I'm sooo disappointed!

I learned to bake by trial and error. Growing Up I was the oldest of 7 siblings. The youngest only 10 yrs younger than I am. There were the bake sales and the desserts that needed to be made and with everyone going in all different directions I learned to be self taught in this area.

I learned to back when I was 12. My parents were divorced and I lived with my dad and had to learn how to cook. I got a Betty Crocker's New Cookbook (the 1961 edition) and taught myself to bake using the recipes in that cookbook.

Beth West www.northernskyart.wordpress.com said...

In my early 20's I pulled out my copy of the Moosewood cookbook or the Enchanted Broccoli Forest and followed their extremely complicated recipe for whole wheat bread. It's a wonder I didn't give up!

20 years later, the process has been streamlined greatly, but I would love to win this giveaway and learn something new!

I learned some baking from my mama and grandmothers, nothing formal, just watching and joining in when allowed. When I moved out for college, I started experimenting and feeling more confident as a baker. I still wouldn't consider myself a great baker, but capable. KA flour is all I use, I'd love to win this!

I learned to bake by watching my mother, then helping as I got older. After marrying, my husband especially loved hot rolls his sister-in-law made. It didn't take long to ask her to teach me her secrets so my rolls soon tasted as good as hers.
Thank you for offering such a wonderful giveaway from King Arthur.
