Giveaway: Challenge Butter “Recipe for Caring” Celebrity Chef Challenge

Even though the holidays are almost past, it doesn't mean that baking season is over! So maybe you're a little burnt out on sweet treats like cakes and cookies, but there are lots of other great goodies you can bake! Challenge Butter can help you make some fabulous recipes for dinner all year round. My new favorite bread recipe is called Tuscan Flat Bread. It's fairly easy to make, even with beginning baking skills, and it's just perfect to dip into hearty stews and soups during the chilly winter months.

Ingredients:

1 cup warm water
1 teaspoon sugar
2 package (¼ oz.) active dry yeast
2½ cups unbleached bread flour
¾ teaspoon salt
¼ cup + 3 Tablespoons Challenge Tuscan Style Spreadable Butter
½ to 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt – (optional)

Directions:

In a small bowl, dissolve sugar and yeast in warm water. Let sit about 10 minutes.

In a large bowl combine: flour, salt, 1/4 cup Tuscan Style Spreadable Butter, and dissolved yeast. Knead until smooth (about 10 minutes), adding an additional ¼ cup flour if necessary to keep the dough from being too sticky.

Place in a lightly buttered bowl, cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise until dough is doubled (about 1 - 1½ hour).

Punch the dough down and turn it out on to a lightly floured board.

Butter an 11 to 12-inch round pan (a pizza pan or large tart pan) or a baking sheet. Shape the dough into an 11 to 12-inch round and transfer to prepared pan. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise until dough is about doubled (about 30 minutes).

Preheat oven to 400°F. Press finger tips into dough creating indentations. Melt 2 tablespoons of Tuscan Butter and brush approximately half over the top of the dough. Sprinkle with salt if desired.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Brush top of hot bread with remaining melted butter. Serve either in wedges or split the wedges and add cold cuts.


If this recipe isn't up your family's alley, check out Challenge Butter's website, because they have some other great recipes too! While you're visiting the site, you'll want to enter their “Recipe for Caring” Celebrity Chef Challenge contest. Three celebrity chefs have made exclusive recipes, each for a charity of their choice, and you can vote on your favorite recipe. Make sure you vote when you visit the site! Plus, you're entered to win goodies of your own with your vote - one winner will win $2500 cash, plus ten other winners will win $250 in Good Cook prizes! (Visit Good Cook over on Facebook, too!) Visit the website for more information, and good luck if you decide to enter!



Win it! Thanks to Challenge Butter, one lucky reader is going to win a prize package that includes $50 worth of Good Cook baking ware, plus five free coupons for Challenge Butter! To enter, visit the “Recipe for Caring” Celebrity Chef Challenge contest website, and tell us which of the three celebrity recipes you'd like to bake and see win.

And as always, you can receive extra entries for:

-You choose: subscribing to my feed OR publicly following my blog via GFC OR Facebook (You can follow all three ways, but only 1 counts for this entry choice TOTAL)
-Blogging about this giveaway with a link back

That's four (4) possible entries! Giveaway ends January 5th at 11:59 PM PST, and please leave your email address in your entry or have it available in your profile. US only, sorry :( Good luck everyone!! :)

One winner will receive the prize package stated above, as fulfilled by the giveaway sponsor. I also received the same prize package from the sponsor in order to try out recipes for this post.
