It was all about bread on the Great British Bake-Off last night. Although the bakes themselves seemed a little uninspiring. Bread sticks? Really? Who makes their own bread sticks? Although after seeing Ali's blue cheese numbers I might be tempted.
I picked Beca in the office sweepstake, she did seem to have a bad night last night with her bendy bread sticks and under-baked Christmas wreath. She is still my favourite though, the banter between her and Mel lifted what ended up being a bit of a dismal week.
Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it, I just felt that the bakes were a bit dull. Bread sticks? I mean come on.
I was super happy to see Ali and Ruby gain in confidence this week after a shaky start. Although I feel Kimberley should of been star baker.
I am still baking along with the show, after the success of last weeks Angel Cake I was raring to try the next technical challenge!
I used the Mary Berry recipe for English Muffins from her Complete Cookbook. I do love Mary Berry but this book is a bit of a shambles, the index doesn't match the page numbers and the recipes lack detail.
This recipe is not at all what they used on the show, no butter or eggs. Just a basic bread dough really. They still tasted like English muffins should though!
- 500g Wholemeal Flour
- 1 tsp Salt
- 7g Sachet of yeast
- 250ml Almond Milk
- 125ml Hot water
What did you make of last nights show? Do you have your favourite picked yet?
Next week it looks like its going to be il flotante (floating islands) and trifle. Neither of which has me too excited. Are they running out of bake ideas?
I added my post to the Bakers Anonymous GBBO Bake-a-long. Go check them out and see how everyone else got on this week!
