Iron Chef Challenge: Champions Edition

Today is the big day for our Iron Chef Bloggers.  Each of these bloggers won a monthly contest held throughout the year and today they are baking against each other to determine who is the 2011 Iron Chef!  For this contest each blogger was given the same recipe from a Taste of Home Cookbook for Cinnamon Raisin Bread.  They were each to use the same ingredients as the recipe called for.  Then take the bread and turn it into something else.  So we have here a collection of 9 ways to use Cinnamon Raisin Bread.

Taste of Home has graciously agreed to be our sponsor for this contest and will judge the entries and award a copy of the Taste of Home Baking Cookbook to the winner.  So without further delay lets look at what are champion chef/bloggers have come up with for this Challenge.

My Merry Cooking!

Who knew you could do so much with something as simple as Cinnamon Raisin Bread?!?!?  As you can see our judge from Taste of Home will have quite the time picking a winner. But when they do we will announce it on this blog and the 2011 Iron Chef will receive their Taste of Home Baking Cookbook and bragging rights for all of 2012.  Thanks again to our sponsor and the bloggers for playing along.

So which recipe do you like best and who do you think should win??????

Thanks for this awesome challenge, Ott,A! The perfect way to cap off another year. Everybody did a great job using the bread in their own way...although, I am feeling partial to ice cream today ;P .

Some of these are creative and they all look delicious. This is my first visit to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier entries. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Thanks for hosting the contest ~ and all of the contests throughout the year. The Cinnamon Raisin Bread was great by itself too! I loved my brown butt croutons and would have never thought of it if you had not challenged me! Pan roastinh the croutons in the brown butter really transforms them into a gourmet ingredient for all sorts of recipes! Thanks again!
