THE GRAM VIRTUAL BAKE-OFF

March 2020

It seems everyone's rediscovering their ovens during iso.  So to keep us occupied and our creativity going, we're holding a weekly Gram Virtual Bake-Off. 
Every week, we'll post a new challenge.  With free ingredients for those participating.  
You can pick your own recipe.  And to make it more fun, post your stories, wins and fails (cos we all need a laugh at the moment) to instagram and tag #gramvirtualbakeoff. 

 

CHALLENGE #1: Hot Cross Buns

hot cross bun GRAM
It's Easter, so what better way to start the challenge than with Hot Cross Buns.  Or 'Hot Cross Bunnies' as Marc, our boss, likes to call them. 

There's only a few things better than a hot, hot cross bun on an Autumn day.  And anything that is better, we'll likely end up making those in the bake-off series anyway! 
FREE INGREDIENT: For this challenge, we're offering our mixed fruit to every customer participating in the challenge. Up to 250g per customer and while stock lasts.

GRAM SHOPPING LIST: Plain Flour, Dried Yeast, Sugar, Mixed Spice, Salt
Get baking and share your fun with everyone via #gramvirtualbakeoff 

   

CHALLENGE #2: Easter Cakes / Cup Cakes

We're sticking with the Easter theme this week.  Mostly because everyone deserves at treat right now but not everyone likes chocolate. 

So what's an Easter Cake? 
It's a cake (or cupcakes) flavored or decorated with an Easter theme. Use your uneaten eggs (if such a thing exists) as decoration.   
Easter Nest Cakes (google them) look almost too good to eat.  Create something a little random like a Carrot Patch Cake or make some simple cupcakes decorated with bunny faces.

FREE INGREDIENT: Call us crazy, but for this challenge, we're offering every bake-off participant up to 500g of White Self Raising Flour for free. But only on Easter Saturday and Easter Monday.  And only while our stock lasts. 

GRAM SHOPPING LIST: Self Raising Flour, Caster Sugar, Salt

Get baking and remember to share your fun with everyone using #gramvirtualbakeoff


CHALLENGE #3: ANZAC Biscuits

 

Without dawn services and parades to get to, what's the best way to pay tribute to our service women and men during iso? 

Bake the best ANZAC Biscuits you can make of course! 

FREE INGREDIENT: Your rolled oats for this challenge are free this week.  So come in and let us know you're doing the challenge and we'll sort you out with 2 cups of rolled oats for free.
