No Knead Chocolate Nut Brioche

For more than 140 years, Fleischmann’s Yeast has focused on teaching people how to raise bread. Now the company hopes to raise breast cancer awareness through their “Bake for the Cure” special contest which was judged on October 10, at the 2011 South Carolina State Fair.

Creative bakers entered a variety of breads featuring Fleischmann’s yeast. Baked goods in the main category, Best Yeast Breads, could be made in any flavor or shape. A second category, Best Whole Grain Breads, included whole grain recipes that had to contain at least 50 percent whole grains (like whole wheat flour or rye flour) and/or other whole grain ingredients (like oatmeal, flax seed, bran cereals and bulgur). All-purpose or bread flour had to be limited to 50 percent or less in the recipe. All recipes were required to be original.

Some of South Carolina’s best bakers delivered their mouthwatering layer cakes, pound cakes, pies and breads to the fair for judging this year.  Here are photos of a few winning entries, including several  awarded a coveted top sweepstakes ribbon. The entries were judged on flavor (always the top consideration), texture, general appearance and ease of preparation. sc fair bread swirl

The handsome loaf of bread on the right attracted quite a bit of attention among the fair judges. The two-tone bread tasted as good as it looks and won a sweepstake award. The cheese biscuits below were tender and rich-tasting from the use of a generous amount of Cheddar cheese. The delicious, fragrant biscuits were another deserving sweepstake winner.

The South Carolina State Fair is in full swing. Running from October 14 to October 25, 2009,you will find exhibits on baking, canned goods, flowers, needlework, quilting, fine arts and agriculture. After participating in the pre-fair judging for the baking division, I took time to visit the decorated cakes entered this year and snapped a few photos.  The entries get better and better each year. This is the first of four photo-posts, which will include mouthwatering a variety of breads and pies. Enjoy!
