Hey Cake Chums and welcome back to Mr Baker’s Cakes: The Blog!
The Great British Bake Off is BACK and you know what that means… my weekly bakealong challenge is back too!
Long time followers will know that for the last five years (I think…?), I have been baking along with the talented amateur bakers of The Great British Bake Off and 2020 is no different… Introducing The Great British Bakealong 2020 – every week for the next ten weeks, I will be attempting to bake along with the bakers in the tent – and this year, I AM switching things up!
Rather than exclusively baking along with the Technical Challenges like in the last few years, in 2020, YOU will get to decide which challenges I take on!
In this week’s first episode, the vote was overwhelmingly in favour of the Signature Challenge, so, in today’s video, I will be attempting to create my very own original Battenberg Cake recipe.
I’ll warn you, as I’m introducing the challenge – as well as baking two cakes, whipping up a batch of ganache AND making from scratch – this week’s episode is a little longer than the norm, but hopefully they won’t all be quite so feature length… 😉
Check out episode one of The Great British Bakealong below and be sure to let me know what you think of my bake.

But, until next week guys… happy caking!
