The AP

A woman in Antioch, California, 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 2,267-foot century-old home as the grand prize.

The four-bedroom, two-bathroom home has been newly restored and is valued at $390,000.

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.
