Hay Hay it’s the Donna Hay roundup!

Whoah!  Your response to this month’s Hay Hay it’s Donna Day event was overwhelming!  We had participants from all over the world – the United States, Canada, Bulgaria, France, Australia, Germany, Spain, Italy, Norway, The Netherlands and India!

Initially I had planned to write a paragraph about each entry but as there are TWENTY ONE participants and TWENTY FOUR entries (yes, one keener made FOUR versions of the dessert!), I think I will just leave you with the gorgeousness that is Donna Hay’s Blackberry Cheesecake Pots (and variations on that theme!).  Please click on the links to their lovely blogs 🙂

At the end of the post, you will find a poll where you can vote for your favourite and that person will host next month’s event!  I will announce the lucky hostess (nope, no guys entered…) on June 15th!

  1. how fun to see all of the different takes on the original cheesecake! i think i enjoyed seeing the little pots and bowls as much as the dessert itself.

  2. I loved this dessert so much (and so did my family) that I am making it again this weekend. I could barely wait a week to try it again! It looks like everyone had fun and made some delicious variations. Thanks for hosting. 😀


  3. They all look so beautiful! And even though all the berry ones are jewel-toned and yummy looking, I can’t help but notice that there are NUTELLA cheesecake pots amidst the rest. Mmmm, Nutella… swoon…

  4. This is unfair. I’m partial to desserts and there is not one in the competition that could not hook me, even on a bad day.
    Do you choose on the basis of a dessert’s appearance/presentation or how you think it might taste?
    “There can only be one winner” – the most depressing phrase in the English language… these are all winners.

  5. What an amazing round up! I have to agree with Cat. I love all the pots and dishes. Thanks for hosting!

  6. Such a simple recipe and yet look at all the marvelous variations! These cheesecakes pots will be my go-to special dessert – so easy, elegant and delicious. Thanks for being a wonderful HHDD hostess!

  7. Fabulous dessert, fabulous round up and so many talented bakers. There are so many great creative delicious variations and I plan on making each and every one this summer. Thanks to Mardi for hosting this event and choosing such a great recipe!
