January 2018 Giveaway: Bake from Scratch magazine's British Issue

Happy New Year, friends, and welcome to the first giveaway of 2018! I'd intended to start this year's blog posts by sharing some of the great books and teas I received for Christmas, but then I came across this wonderful magazine and wanted to tell you about it so you can be on the lookout for a copy before it sells out—but only if you don't win the copy I'm giving away here!

And oh, do I love this magazine! It's one of those pricey ($12.99) ones from Hoffman Media, but this one is definitely worth every penny. The issue is guest edited by Edd Kimber, who won the first season of The Great British Bake Off. I so enjoyed reading about him, and the magazine also takes us to places like the Pump Street Bakery in a Suffolk village and a cooking school in rural Lancashire. But my absolute favorite feature was "Baked to a Tea," and I'm just drooling over some of these tea-infused recipes, from this incredible Battenberg cake baked with matcha to a tart made with Assam tea to a Lady Grey Tea Jelly.

The photos in this issue are stunning, including this one of English Breakfast Orange Marmalade Roly Poly, a roulade. And with my newfound love for Harney's Victorian London Fog tea, I'm also intrigued by the recipe for London Fog Cake with Salted Caramel Drizzle. The issue discusses scones and English muffins, and there's a most helpful glossary that lists British baking terms and American equivalents, which will be welcome to anyone who's ever picked up a British cookbook and been puzzled by some of the ingredients.

If you'd like to be entered to win a copy of the magazine for yourself, just leave an "Enter me" to this post between now and 7 a.m. EST on Monday, January 8, 2018, and you'll be entered to win. And you can enter from anywhere in the world! But to save me some time, I do have a few new requirements for giveaways this year. First, you *must* include a way for me to contact you if you're the winner, and comments without an email address or a link to this information will be deleted. (If you've been regularly emailing me and commenting for years, you may safely assume that I know how to contact you!) Second, to save me some time in tracking down winners, you'll have 48 hours after  my notification to "claim" your prize by sending me your snail mail address, and after that I'll award the prize to someone else rather than sending repeated emails asking for a reply. So please enter away, and good luck! I can't wait for other tea lovers to discover this great magazine!

  17. In a really funny coincidence, I purchased this while I was at Target last night, and then when I got home I read the email about your giveaway! I'd never seen this magazine before, but the cover caught my eye while I was waiting in line, and I had to pick up a copy. :-)
