Challenger Breadware, the company behind the Challenger Bread Pan, has announced home baker, award-winning blogger and author of Sourdough Every Day Hannah Dela Cruz as its newest brand ambassador.

As a Challenger brand ambassador, Dela Cruz will develop custom recipes on the Challenger Breadware website, as well as blogging about tips and techniques home bakers can use to make professional-quality bread right in their own ovens. She will focus on sourdough discard recipes, often times with an Asian and Filipino flair. Her first recipe is for sourdough cornbread.

“I love working with the Challenger Bread Pan, as well as the company’s other high-quality products, and I look forward to sharing my bread baking experiences with fans of the brand,” says Dela Cruz. “I have such great respect for the company Jim Challenger has built, and the tools it offers to home bakers. I am particularly grateful that a company with such a large presence in the baking community is highlighting Filipino cuisine. I am so excited to share some of my favorite recipes.”

“Hannah’s talent in making incredible sourdough is well known in the baking community,” says Challenger. “Our followers will be amazed at the unique recipes she’s going to create, many with an international flair.”

Dela Cruz joins professional baker Greg Wade of Publican Quality Bread as the company’s other signature brand ambassador.
