This week CFHW brings you… My Top 5 TV Cookery Programmes!
Week 1 of GBBO and I bake a Vodka & Coke Drizzle Cake. Read on for the recipe:
Pastry week fils me with fear. I’ve not often made any pastry myself and when I have it has more often than not been a failure. I’ve never made frangipane either, so clearly frangipane tart was the way to go! My Mum and Dad have been plying me with fruit from their garden so I…… Continue reading Great Bloggers Bake Off 2015 – Pastry Week
Biscuit week on Great British Bake Off is one of those ones that I always enjoy but often have disasters on – biscuits are very unforgiving. They either work brilliantly or fail completely. There doesn’t seem to be any middle ground. The three bakes this week were biscotti, Arlettes and show stopper biscuit boxes filled…… Continue reading Hazelnut & Daim Biscotti #GBBOBloggers2015 – Biscuit Week
The Great British Bake off is back on our TV screens which means that yet again the Great Bloggers Bake Off is back as we all join in by baking along. The series opened with cake week and gave the contestants the challenges of making Madeira cake, Frosted Walnut cake or a showstopper take on…… Continue reading Carole’s Black Forest Cake #GBBOBloggers2015 – Cake Week
And here we are: The Great Blogger’s Bake Off Final. I missed a couple of weeks in the middle due to various members of the family being ill and time just generally evading me but I was determined to join in with the final bake. Last year I made a tiered Hallowe’en cake as my…… Continue reading Chocolate & Blackberry Cheesecake Swirl Cake – #GreatBloggersBakeOff2014 Week 10 – The Final!
It has happened. It didn’t happen in a week I expected, but it has happened all the same. I made an entirely inedible cake. I didn’t fancy making the million layered Dobos Torte thing, the Princess Torte looked delicious but a lot of faff which left me with the yeast-leavened cake option. I found a…… Continue reading Butterkuchen – #GreatBloggersBakeOff2014 Week 6
Now you see this is the week I should dread really. Because I literally never make pastry – I have now done it twice in my life and both were for the Great Bloggers Bake Off. Last time was way more successful. My hands are too warm for pastry. This is my excuse and I…… Continue reading Apple & Strawberry Pie – #GreatBloggersBakeOff2014 Week 5
Dessert week, one of my favourites! Last year I made Toffee Apple Trifle which was delicious (and on my list of things to make again with this year’s apples!) and this year there was no second thoughts about what I was making – Self-Saucing Pudding for sure! I don’t like coffee which ruled out the…… Continue reading Golden Syrup Self-Saucing Pudding – #GreatBloggersBakeOff2014 Week 4
Bread Week fills me with fear but is never as disastrous as I expect – I should really make bread more often. So, I don’t like Rye bread so that ruled that out, I’ve made ciabatta before (and they were so *cough* wonderful *cough* that I gave them to somebody else) so that just left…… Continue reading Prosciutto & Parmesan Bread – #GreatBloggersBakeOff2014 Week 3
