Tasty Pooh Recipes

In late 2008, Just Pooh ran an exciting competition for its fans. To enter the competition, you just needed to submit a Pooh-inspired recipe.

We received so many wonderful entries and it was very difficult to pick a winner. After much deliberation, we decided that the prize should go to Elaine Conte with her recipe for a Pooh's Scrummy Honey Cake. Elaine will win the fantastic prize of receiving the Complete Tales of Winnie the Pooh, by A.A. Milne (worth $26). Special congratulations to Elaine and a huge thank you to everyone else that took part!

Please enjoy these delicious recipes submitted by fellow Winnie the Pooh fans. It is very important that you ask an adult to help you with making these recipes!
