Baking along with the Great British Bake Off: Week Four – DAIRY

Hey Cake Chums!

It’s week four of The Great British Bake Off and, this week, it was the first EVER Dairy Week!

Every week, during series 10 of GBBO, I am attempting each episode’s technical challenge – following the same rules, timings and recipe as the bakers in the tent – filming the entire experience and sharing it over on my YouTube channel.

In dairy week, that meant I was tackling Prue Leith’s take on a 600-year-old classic: Maids of Honour – reported to be Henry VIII’s favourite dessert – with one very unusual ingredient.

Check it out in the video below…

Baking along with the Great British Bake Off: Week Three – BREAD

Hey Cake Chums!

It’s week three of The Great British Bake Off and, this week, it was Bread Week! You know things are getting serious when Bread Week rolls around – the standards get higher and the judging gets harsher (and dare I say meaner…?).

As most of you know, every week during series 10 of GBBO, I will be attempting each episode’s technical challenge, following the same rules, timings and recipe as the bakers in the tent and filming the entire experience, before uploading it over on my YouTube channel.

So in bread week, that means I was tackling Paul Hollywood’s floured burger baps AND homemade veggie burgers with all the trimmings.

There was certainly a lot to do – as you will see for yourself in my video below…

Baking along with the Great British Bake Off: Week Two – BISCUITS

Hey Cake Chums!

It’s week two of The Great British Bake Off and, this week, the bakers were tackling biscuits – with a chocolate-covered biscuit bar signature, a fig roll technical and a showstopper that saw them crafting elaborate biscuit sculptures.

As I explained last Friday, every week during series 10 of GBBO, I will be attempting each episode’s technical challenge, following the same rules, timings and recipe as the bakers in the tent and filming the entire experience, before uploading it over on my YouTube channel.

So in biscuit week, that means I was tackling Paul Hollywood’s fig rolls – a slightly spicier take on the classic recipe.

The bakers experienced mixed results with their technical creations, and I won’t lie, it’s certainly trickier than it looks – you can see for yourself in my video below…

Or click here to watch the video over on YouTube.

So, have you watched Biscuit Week yet? As always, no spoilers, but were you as sad as I was to see a certain someone go home? Have you already got a favourite baker? Are you planning on attempting Paul’s fig rolls? Or will you be having a go at any of the other Biscuit Week recipes? Be sure to let me know your thoughts down in the comments section below.
