The Great British Baking Show (or Great British Bake Off depending on where you are) is one of my all time favorite shows. Between Mary Berry’s general greatness, Paul Hollywood’s piercing eyes, and Mel and Sue’s banter it is pure magic. Oh, and those bakers are absolutely incredible too! They spare viewers the drama and just get on with baking, except for baked alaska gate. I loved how they all supported each other and made gorgeous creations. So I was crushed when I heard the news that it was moving from the BBC to Channel 4 in Britain. It meant that Mary, Mel and Sue decided their loyalty was with the BBC and left the show.
When they cooled enough, I had to try one immediately. Oh my goodness, they were everything I hoped for and more! I felt like I was competing in my own little Great British Baking show and won the technical challenge, ha. It was such a blast trying to make this recipe from the show. Here is the link to the actual recipe that I used. I followed it really closely using my kitchen scale. I didn’t use as much sugar as it called for. The only other thing I changed based on comments was the cooking temperature. I lowered it to 350. That way they baked through without burning on top. I hope you all try out and love this wonderful treat! Keep on baking. xoxo
