And The Winner Is…

Monday, August 30th, 2010

If you have a sweet tooth, then hopefully you were in attendance this past Saturday when we crowned the winner of the Abt/Electrolux Bake Off Contest.  The five finalists were on hand to wow the judges with their creations, and had some samples to hand out to other customers (if you didn’t get a chance to taste the recipes, you can always have one of our freshly, baked chocolate chip cookies that are available during the weekends).  We had the opportunity to sample Andrea’s Peppermint Chocolate Cake, Bill’s Chicago “Cub” Cakes, Renee’s Sweet Tart Squares, Nancy’s Turtle Cheesecake Lollipops and Audrey’s Pistachio Chocochews.

After much deliberation, our three judges chose Bill’s Chicago “Cub” Cakes as the overall winner!  I had a chance to interview Bill and was surprised that he created this recipe just for the contest.  Another surprise was finding out that he and his wife purchased their first appliances in 1978 from Jewel Abt, one of the founders of this company, and they have been loyal Abt customers ever since.  Bill  won an Electrolux dream kitchen, valued up to $7,999.  As an engineer, he appreciates that Electrolux creates is a “well engineered appliances.”

Congratulations Bill!  We can’t wait to see what recipes next year’s contest will bring out!
