Make your family's favorite dessert famous: Share your recipe with Vote 4 the Best!

The winning recipe will be featured on WDIV's Live in the D

Does your family have the best dessert recipe in Metro Detroit? Make it famous by entering it into our friendly contest featuring the best homemade sweet treats from the Local 4 viewing area. 

Entering is easy. Use the form below to share your recipe, and it's immediately entered into our voting competition. The top vote-getter will win an invitation to Live in the D to make and share their dessert. If you're camera shy, we'll prepare it for you. 

While there's one winner, we'll all win with a collection of a family-tested dessert recipes to test out ourselves this holiday season. Just FYI ... we do intend to share the recipes, so don't give away any family secrets. 

Nominations close Nov. 12. Voting starts Nov. 13 and runs through Nov. 16. 

After you submit your "Best" recipe, Metro Detroiters will vote for their favorites. The Top 4 recipes with the most votes will be announced on Local 4 News Today (our morning newscast) on Nov. 20. Local 4 producers will do a taste test to decide the ultimate winner who will then be featured on "Live in the D" Tuesday, Nov. 21.

What are we looking for? Easy-to-make, original, homemade desserts. If you're not a baker, nominate someone you know. We all need some new recipes to try out this holiday season -- share yours today!  

(One tip/request: We'd really like a picture of your dessert to go with your recipe, but if you can't find one, we'll come up with something for you. If you have any questions, email us at
