Here they all are, nearly 70 years’ worth of grand prize-winning recipes! The careful eye will notice that have actually been 54 winning recipes spanning a total of 48 contests, however. Here’s a quick crash course in Bake-Off history to explain why:
- 1949 to 1976: Bake-Off is held annually (except for 1965, when the contest is moved from October to the following February), with two winners per contest from 1972 to 1978.
- 1978 to 2012: Bake-Off is held every other year.
- 2013 and beyond: There are back-to-back contests in 2013 and 2014, followed by a hiatus until entries for the 48th Bake-Off Contest open in the fall of 2017.
And that brings us to today! The entry period for the 49th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest is August 7 to September 12, 2018, and we’ll announce the winner in early 2019. Enter your original recipe—and share the real-life memories and traditions that inspired it—and you could see your name added to this list one day. Learn more at BAKEOFF.COM!
