Yet again, it’s the time of year that the BBC bring baking fever back to the people of Britain. The Great British Bake Off is now in its sixth series, and this is its most popular yet, with 9.3 million viewers tuning in watch the first episode.
The format is simple, but we love it – so much so, in fact, that we put together our own Bake Off trio of delicious desserts.
Each episode of the Bake Off begins with the Signature dish. This is something that the bakers think they do particularly well, and that’s a little different from the run-of-the-mill fare. We’re laying out our Salted Caramel and Milk Chocolate Tart before the judges. This is a new dessert for 2015, and we think we’ve got it just right with the sweetness of the caramel, the counterbalancing salt, and the decadence of the chocolate topping. There’ll be no complaints of a soggy bottom with this crisp base.
The Technical challenge pushes the bakers to the limits of their abilities. It’s a round for the perfectionists in the group to shine. Nothing short of perfection will do at Destiny Foods, and to show off our skills we present our tower of pretty profiteroles. This notoriously difficult bake has been perfected by our skilled professionals. The filling is perfectly creamy. The pastry is unbeatably melt-in-the-mouth. The chocolate makes them a clear winner.
This is the last, but most certainly not the least of the Bake Off challenges. The showstopper is the dessert that has to impress, and we know how to impress. The Deluxe Chocolate Gateaux combines everyone’s favourite ingredient – that’s chocolate, of course – with a little more chocolate, chocolate work, a chocolate topping, and several cups’ worth of skill. This dessert can take centre stage with confidence. It’s a sure winner!
