Our cooking club features one great recipe for the entire month, including a prize for the best photo entry. So spread the word to all your friends – with nearly a month to enter, fitting a new recipe onto the menu will be a breeze.

April’s challenge: Classic Vanilla Cake

Introducing the only cake we ever make! It’s easy, fast and spectacular. It looks best in two 8-in. cake pans; to use 9-in. pans, decrease the baking time to 30 min.

The photo

Get creative! Don’t shy away from using colour or props, and experiment with different angles when taking your photo.

At the end of the month we’ll select the best photo submission and that lucky winner will receive a Chatelaine Kitchen Essentials bakeware prize pack, including a 6pc bakeware set and holiday baking set from our friends at The Shopping Channel.
