California woman offers home as prize in dessert contest

Posted: Updated:

ANTIOCH, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California woman is offering a sweet deal on her 1906 Craftsman home in Jackson. She's trading it for a great dessert.

The Contra Costa Times reports that Erin Allard is hosting a dessert contest with the 2,267-square-foot century-old home as the grand prize. The four bedroom, two bathroom home has been restored and is valued at $390,000.

She says she opted for the competition because it can take months to sell a home in rural Jackson.

Allard, who is a licensed real estate agent, has spent weeks checking details and legalities to make sure the competition goes off without a problem.

The contest will be judged by a panel of food experts. Those looking to apply have until Sept. 7 to submit a $100 entry fee and a million-dollar recipe.
