The Great British Bake Off
This past week has passed in an absolute blur of flour, sugar and eggs! I have had the huge honour of working on a cake collaboration with Stork to create a celebration birthday cake for Mary Berry’s 80th Birthday this week!
No it’s not a mistake, you’re here at The Pink Whisk but I’m here to share Holly Bell’s fab new book!
Recipes from a Normal Mum by Holly Bell
I’m so thrilled to have a book of Holly’s on my cookbook shelf.
Wow what a final on #GBBO last night! Congratulations Nancy!!
All the finalists did so brilliantly well they would all have made worthy winners.
I’m going to give a special mention to Luis, as we both live in Poynton – it must be a hive of baking ability – hopefully third time lucky Poynton will conquer with a winner 😉 Luis’ blog is here www.luistroyano.com
It’s not often I get to bake something a little bit different from the norm but these two #StorkTwist recipes delivered it in bucket loads.
First up a Chocolate Amaretto Schichttorte – the method looks a little daunting, baked in layers under the grill but I have to say I loved baking it and loved eating it too!
Two more lovely #GBBO inspired recipes for you this week – all the fun without any of the pressure from the judges 😉
and a much easier Chocolate Nut Roll recipe!
This weeks #GBBO inspired recipes
My favourite #StorkTwist recipe of this years Bake Off – Roasted Tomato & Olive Palmiers
And, the pastry none of the bakers had heard of – a Kouign Amann my version with Salted Caramel and Pecans.
Another pair of delectable #GBBO inspired recipes with a #StorkTwist for you today from me to you. It’s been a sweet week in our house but the boys aren’t complaining! Here are the recipes if you fancy giving them a go.
Halfway through a hectic week getting my boys back to school, Bake Off last night was a very welcome chance for a sit down, feet up and enjoy the baking!
The programme is hugely inspiring everyone to get in the kitchen and bake so if you fancy a custard tart with a twist or fancy a shot at tangling pastry and pears then these recipes with a #StorkTwist might just help you out!
