30 Hour Famine Bake Sale

Restaurant: none

dre: The teenagers at my church were participating in World Vision's 30 Hour Famine this past April. Mike and I set them a fund-raising goal of $5000, so they decided to have a bake sale. Honestly, I think I was more excited than them to bake stuff, that I started a week early and put a bunch of goodies in the fridge.

I cracked open for the first time this baked goods cookbook I never knew I had, and filtered through all the recipes to see which ones I wanted to try. Here are the results:

  • The first 2 cookies - Cranberry peanut whole wheat cookies and Cranberry coconut oatmeal whole wheat cookies. We advertised these as the "Healthy Cookies".
  • Marble cupcakes - chocolate cake and cheesecake mixed together. This was a big hit.
  • Lemon squares - I found these too sweet for my liking, but I made this because I had extra lemons in my fridge.
  • Lime poppy seed almond cake - This turned out pretty good.

The kids came over and made:

  • Chocolate brownies
  • Chocolate cupcakes
  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Coconut chocolate chip cookies
  • Rice Krispie squares

We sold them during lunch time at church, and definitely overpriced things, but we profited $150 after paying back the cost of the ingredients.
