The Great British Bake Off

As you can expect, we are of the opinion that baking tastes best in a BA kitchen. So as the finals of this year’s Great British Bake Off are fast approaching, we thought you’d enjoy sifting through a short compilation of our favourite recipes from the season so far. Happy baking!

Quadruple Chocolate Black Forest Gâteau

This is a truly spectacular four-layered Black Forest gâteau for people who are serious about chocolate. Try not to let your mouth water too much while you’re making it.

Sun-Dried Tomato Cheese Biscuit Box with Parmesan ‘Sandwich’ Biscuits

If you want to impress your friends and family with an after-dinner cheeseboard, this is definitely the way to do it. You can serve this clever construction on a large cheese board with Wensleydale cheese, grapes and a glass of port, truly taking your cheese course to the next level.

Cranberry and Orange Sweet Soda Bread

For a different take on soda, try this cranberry and orange sweet soda bread. The texture and flavour isn’t too far from that of scones, so you can enjoy it with a cuppa on your morning coffee break.

Cappuccino Crème Brûlée

Cappuccino and crème brûlée – two ultimately indulgent food things combined. These rich and creamy coffee-flavoured variations on the classic theme have a more unusual method for creating an extra-crunchy topping. The caster sugar is cooked to a caramel and allowed to set, then broken into shards. These are blitzed to a fine sand in a food processer before being sprinkled on to the custards and melted under the grill… Divine.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

Pineapple upside-down cake is always a crowd-pleaser, and with this recipe, we’re sure that everyone who has a slice will want to come back for more.

Coriander Chicken and Rosemary Pulled Pork Vol-Au-Vents

Everyone knows that nothing beats pulled pork. This recipe gives vol-au-vents a modern feel with a choice of seasoned pulled pork and spicy chicken fillings.

Trio of Mango, Hazelnut and Rosemary Cheesecakes

Yes. Cheesecake. X3. Need we say more? This triple layer dessert looks fantastic for a special occasion, or you can opt for making one flavour for a weekday treat.
