All the Winning Pillsbury Bake-Off Dishes

Baked goods that we find on every holiday platter have been popularized because of Bake-Off submissions and winners

This buttercream pound cake from 1968 marries modern and vintage baking techniques, making it a timeless winning dish.

There are some baking classics that you don’t even think about. Peanut butter cookies, Bundt cakes, and sesame seeds are all standard, popular recipes that have been around forever, right? Wrong! These recipes (and many, many more) only entered the American recipe rolodex thanks to the Pillsbury Bake-Off.

The iconic contest has been revolutionizing the way home cooks bake and make quick and easy dinners for 69 years. Though one might expect the Pillsbury Bake-Off to take place on an annual basis, that has not always been the case. Since its inception in 1949, the contest has been held 47 times. For its first 27 years, it was an annual event. From 1978 to 2012, the contest was held only during even years, though there were sometimes multiple grand prize winners. Since 2013, the Pillsbury Bake-Off has been an elusive beast, being held in both 2013 and 2014 before taking a four-year hiatus and returning this year. While its frequency may be a little confounding, the end result is 54 incredible, award-winning desserts and dishes. And to celebrate the winner of the 2018 contest, Amy Nelson of North Carolina and her Bejeweled Cranberry-Orange Rolls, we have every winning dish from the Pillsbury Bake-Off since its inception in 1949 with the No-Knead Water-Rising Twists.

The contest has developed over the years from making simple yet scrumptious baked goods from scratch to using convenience products to shorten baking time, allowing home cooks to focus on flavors and spending time away from the kitchen and with their family and friends. So break out your apron and mixer, it’s time to check out every single winning dish from the Pillsbury Bake-Off.
