The second technical challenge for The Great British Bake Off was scones. Scones may look simple to make however there are several things that could go wrong. Some key tips are to make sure you have a sharp fluted cutter, this will help to get your scones to rise evenly. Another tip is to make sure when you are cutting the scones out of the dough is not to twist the cutter, as this will affect how your scones will rise.
Yet again here is another brownie recipe, this time I have added crushed Bourbon Biscuits into the brownie batter and then decorated the top with even Bourbon Biscuits. These Bourbon Biscuit Brownies are fudge and gooey and make a perfect treat!
Here is a perfect recipe for a summer afternoon, here my sticky lemon loaf cake. This is a light lemon sponge cake which is soaked in a lemon syrup and then decorated with lemon icing and candied lemon peel (optional).
Here is a quick and easy blondie recipe with a little twist. The Custard Creams add a nice crunchy texture to the blondies and the custard powder in this recipe adds an instant taste of custard to these blondies.
This is one of the most requested cakes I get asked to make for peoples birthdays. I have been making this cake for years and every year I have improved the recipe and decoration of this cake. This Oreo drip cake has three layers of Oreo Caked which are filled with Oreo Buttercream. The cake is decorated with dark chocolate ganache and Mini Oreos.
Here is my recipe for Chocolate Hazelnut Macarons, these are basically Nutella Macarons. These macrons have a two chocolate and hazelnut macaron shell sandwich in between a smooth Nutella ganache filling. This recipe makes 24 macarons.
Here is a great quick and easy cupcake recipe that uses one of the most popular chocolates you can buy at Easter - Cadbury Creme Eggs. This Easter treat consists of a chocolate cupcake, topped off with vanilla buttercream and then decorated with a chocolate ganache drizzle and Cadbury Creme Egg halves!
This recipe combines two of my favorite things Oreos and Brownies. These brownies are soft, chewy and fudgy. In addition to that these brownies have a layer of Oreos in the middle and the top of the brownies are decorated with chopped Oreos!
The technical challenge for the botanical week on series 7 was to make a Fresh Herb Fougasse. A Fougasse is a french flatbread, decorated to resemble an ear of wheat. The difficult part of this challenge was to open up the cuts in the dough so that they do not close when the bread is baked.
