The Home Baking Association is honored to work with the Maddie Kruse Family and HBA Member ADM,  to create this new award to recognize young bakers. Maddie Kruse was a smart, fun loving, kindhearted and crafty sixteen-year-old whose life was needlessly cut short by a drunk driver. Maddie loved to bake and this award aims to inspire youth to make a difference in their communities with baking.  Submit pictures and how your baking has made a difference in your community to be eligible to win the $1,000 and a trip to the Home Baking Association 2023 Annual Meeting.

Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls

Springtime, or any time, is a good time to make these rich and gooey cinnamon rolls. Shredded carrots and sweet cream cheese frosting elevate this dessert, but C&H® Brown Sugar makes it magical.
