2016 GBBO Bakes in Review

So it is nearly time for the Great British Bake Off to return to the screens, but in its new home on Channel 4. What to expect?! Reviews in the media seem to be mixed so far. Prue Leith is replacing Mary Berry, and Mel […]

Pomegranate and Kiwi Crown Pavlova

Pomegranate and Kiwi Crown Pavlova

I can’t believe that it is the end of October already, and the final series of Great British Bake Off as we know it is over. I thought Candice would win, and wanted her to, what about you? I thought she was wowing the judges […]

Easy Cranberry and Pistachio Palmiers

Easy Cranberry and Pistachio Palmiers

It is half term so an easy bake was on the cards for this weeks Great British Bake Off bake! A fruit savarin with chocolate work and caramel or fondant fancies didn’t seem to fit that description so I decided on palmiers. Sweet palmiers are […]

Pumpkin Spice Churros #GBBO Batter Week

Pumpkin Spice Churros #GBBO Batter Week

The theme this week on the Great British Bake off was Batter, a new theme which some have found quite controversial – is it really baking?! And you can’t possibly have missed the other news that the show will be going over to Channel 4 […]

Chocolate Six-Strand Braided Challah Loaf

Chocolate Six-Strand Braided Challah Loaf

If you haven’t noticed, I’m baking along with the themes of the Great British Bake Off each week. Not all the bakes of course, who has time for that? But each week I try to bake something inspired by the previous week’s show. This week […]

Blueberry Viennese Whirls with Blackcurrant Curd

Blueberry Viennese Whirls with Blackcurrant Curd

So this week on Great British Bake Off was Biscuit Week. Decorated biscuits and a gingerbread story weren’t for me, so that left Viennese whirls! My previous try at Viennese whirls was a festive one, so I thought a flavoured Viennese whirl would be something […]

Jaffa Shortbread Slice – #GBBO Week 1

Jaffa Shortbread Slice – #GBBO Week 1

Are you happy to see The Great British Bake Off back on the screens? I was pleased to see it back, and once again this year I’m going to be joining in with the Great Bloggers Bake Off when I can. This week on GBBO […]

My 2015 Great British Bake Off Bakes in Review

My 2015 Great British Bake Off Bakes in Review

I can’t wait for Great British Bake Off to come back on in a couple of weeks! How about you? Last year I baked along with the show every week, and joined in with the Great Bloggers Bake Off with Mummy Mishaps. I’m not sure […]

Cherry and Vanilla Charlotte Russe

Cherry and Vanilla Charlotte Russe

I would not normally attempt such a complicated recipe but since they made Charlotte russe on GBBO last week I decided to give it a try. Having seen the way it was assembled, and that clear defined layers of bavarois and jelly were the aim, […]

Tear-and-share Brioche with Salted Caramel Icing

Tear-and-share Brioche with Salted Caramel Icing

So last week saw the Final of Great British Bake-Off, with Nancy winning with her perfect tartes au citron and not least her amazing Moulin rouge inspired creation. I had hoped Chetna would win, but after her departure the previous week, I was in Team […]

Chocolate Savarin drenched in Chocolate Syrup

Chocolate Savarin drenched in Chocolate Syrup

This is my latest Great British Bake-Off bake-along post, following last week’s episode on European Cakes. The bakers last week made yeast-leavened cakes like babka, savarins and Kugelhopfs, followed by Swedish princess cake and then a show stopper based on the Hungarian Dobos torte which […]

Chocolate and Salted Caramel Tart

Chocolate and Salted Caramel Tart

Chocolate and salted caramel tart alert! This week on Great British Bake-Off the bakers made tarts and pies. I don’t make tarts often or pies ever so this was a bit of a challenge for me! The three-tiered hot crust pies were way out of […]
