The Earth Balance Holiday Bake-Off is a four-week competition that evaluates original, plant-based dessert recipes using at least one Earth Balance product. Each week of the contest features a different dessert theme, including our two remaining categories - cupcakes and cookies. Each week, two winners are chosen to receive Whole Foods gift cards and a year's supply of Earth Balance. One lucky winner will take home a $1,000 Whole Foods gift card grand prize!


"The holiday season is about family traditions and recipes," said TJ McIntyre, Vice President General Manager of Earth Balance. "Plant-based desserts are just as delicious, if not more, than desserts made with traditional ingredients, and we're excited to see what our community shares with us during our second annual Holiday Bake-Off."


Throughout the four week contest, a team of culinary experts including Jenny Engle and Heather Goldberg from Spork Foods evaluate the recipes based on appeal, ease of preparation and creativity.  


To qualify, recipes must be plant-based, contain an Earth Balance® product, including spreads, sticks, nut butters and soymilk, and feature one or more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts or seeds. Each week, bakers will compete to have the top recipes in a different category. The remaining recipe category schedule is:

  • December 12-18: Cupcakes
  • December 19-23: Cookies

All winners will be announced the week of January 9, 2012.
