The Great British Bake-Off blog challenge

Are you excited at the return of the Great British Bake-Off on our television screens?


I love the programme with all the different ideas for tasty treats, the banter and getting to know the individual bakers as the weeks go by.

I don’t think I could enter the show though as I would hate having to work with other contestants around.  I would find that a real pressure.

Inspired by the return of the show, I have set myself a challenge of baking some of the things featured on the show week by week.

My mum was a marvellous baker famous for her scones, her walnut cake, her butterfly buns and her mince pies.  She cooked as a job, at home and at community events.

I enjoy baking – I find it calming, creative and love seeing people relish what I turn out on my best days.  I don’t claim to be a great baker but this challenge might help me improve along the way.

So every Wednesday, I will write a post showing what I have made the week before and how I got on, mistakes and all.

I have already made a Swiss roll and intend to do a cherry cake and mini cakes of some description inspired by the TV show.

I am making this a linky in case anyone wants to join in and so that we can all learn from each other and have fun.

You can find recipes and inspiration on the Great British Bake-Off website
