Clementine Pound Cake and Brownies: Giveaway Haul at a Synchro Meet

Do you ever feel like you’re on a streak of luck that will never end?

Yeah, me neither. But every so often, I win something. Like the giveaway that Julie hosted as a celebration for her much-deserved victory in the Food 52 Cardamom Contest, which means that the recipe for this beautiful Clementine Pound Cake will be published in a cookbook.

I told them that the “congrats on your win” was for them. Because it was. So were some of these super-fudgy brownies. How on earth did Julie know I'd be a sucker for brownies.

Oh. Right. My, uh, blog title and tagline.

My swimmers and I were impressed with how much chocolate were packed into these.

They were very fudgy while still being nice and solid in texture, and not super-gooey. I highly recommend Julie’s brownies. Seriously. These should win something, too. But if you can't get your hands on them, just check out Julie's blog. There are some awesome recipes there.

Have you ever won a blog giveaway? What did you get?


  1. Congrats on your wins :) Your swimmers are definitely fun to watch!

    And I think I've won cliff bars, a necklace, capris, and a CSN gift certificate in blog giveaways. I love me some free stuff!

  2. Many moons ago I won a t-shirt from a webcomic I used to read (Joe the Circle, woo!), and it was probably one of the happiest moments of my young life since I'd never won anything before. Congratz on your own win, glad everything was nom-y. ^_^

  3. Hooray, glad you liked them!

    Dan told me I had to mail out the brownies so that he didn't eat the whole pan. ;)

  4. Ooo, those prizes look delish! And I never win blog giveaways. Congrats to you and also to Julie!

  5. Actually, while in normal life I never win anything, I've actually one a heap of blog giveaways! A few cookbooks, a necklace, a spiraliser, glass straws, chocolate, a book... I've been very lucky :)
