The Great British Bake Off Best Bits

The 2020 series came to an end a few weeks back, but that - and tonight’s “Best Bits” show - had me thinking about what I consider the best bits (there might be some overlap with the show!). So, let’s get to it, here are some of my highlights from the ten years of The… Continue reading The Great British Bake Off Best Bits

The Great British Bake Off Season 11 Episode 10 – My Thoughts

It’s that time again, it’s another episode of The Great British Bake Off but – this time – it’s the Final! It only feels like last week we were introduced to a new batch of bakers and now we’ve crowned the latest winner, time flies eh? Last week, the bakers were put to the test… Continue reading The Great British Bake Off Season 11 Episode 10 – My Thoughts

The Great British Bake Off Season 11 Episode 9 – My Thoughts

It’s that time again, it’s another episode of The Great British Bake Off but - this time - it’s the Semi Final! I for one can’t believe how quick it has gone. Last week, the bakers demonstrated their dessert skills as they crafted cheesecake, stumbled over Sussex puddings and were judged on their jelly designs.… Continue reading The Great British Bake Off Season 11 Episode 9 – My Thoughts

The Great British Bake Off: Season 11 Episode 8 – My Thoughts

Though I’ve got music and books to keep me going through lockdown, there’s no denying that the latest series of The Great British Bake Off has been a blessing. Last week, the baker’s retro 1980s creations were ridiculed - from a quiche, to a doughnut Technical and an ice-cream cake Showstopper. This week, it was… Continue reading The Great British Bake Off: Season 11 Episode 8 – My Thoughts

The Great British Bake Off: Season 11 Episode 6 – My Thoughts

Here we are again, another episode of The Great British Bake Off! Apart from Music Mondays, this is definitely my favourite day of the week! Last week, the bakers were put to the test making pastry, attempting to perfect pasties, elevate eclairs and craft caged tarts. This week, on the show’s 100th episode, there’s a… Continue reading The Great British Bake Off: Season 11 Episode 6 – My Thoughts

The Great British Bake Off: Season 11, Episode 5 – My Thoughts

🥐 🥐 It’s that time again, my favourite time of the week (apart from Music Mondays), another episode of The Great British Bake Off has arrived. Last week, it was Chocolate Week and the bakers braved brownies, battled babka and crafted white chocolate celebration cakes. This week, we’re halfway through! The bakers took on pastry… Continue reading The Great British Bake Off: Season 11, Episode 5 – My Thoughts

The Great British Bake Off: Season 11, Episode 4 – My Thoughts

🍫 🍫 It’s that time again, another episode of The Great British Bake Off. Last week, the bakers got stuck in to soda bread, battled rainbow bagels and crafted bread plaques. This week was the tastiest week of all (in my opinion): chocolate week. I think things are starting to really heat up in the… Continue reading The Great British Bake Off: Season 11, Episode 4 – My Thoughts

The Great British Bake Off: Season 11, Episode 3 – My Thoughts

🍞 🍞 🍞 It’s that time again. We’re three weeks in to the competition (already??). Last week, the bakers battled biscuits, crafting fiddly Florentines, marvellous macaroons and designing 3D biscuit dinner sets. This week, the bakers were tasked with making Paul Hollywood’s speciality: bread. Though we’re only three weeks in, you can see that things… Continue reading The Great British Bake Off: Season 11, Episode 3 – My Thoughts

The Great British Bake Off: Season 11, Episode 2 – My Thoughts

🍪 🍪 🍪 It’s the highlight of my week (and maybe my year at this rate!), the second episode of the latest series of The Great British Bake Off. Last week, we welcomed 12 new bakers (and a new presenter, who is a fantastic addition so far I think!) into the tent to craft some… Continue reading The Great British Bake Off: Season 11, Episode 2 – My Thoughts

The Great British Bake Off: Season 11, Episode 1 – My Thoughts

🧁🧁🧁 It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, not Christmas (though, the speed this year’s going, it won’t be far off), it’s another series of The Great British Bake Off. As everyone will surely be aware of by now, things have been less than normal (and less than joyful), but having the baking… Continue reading The Great British Bake Off: Season 11, Episode 1 – My Thoughts
