Great British bake Off Bloggers 2018

Patisserie Week #GBBOBloggers2018 Week 9

It’s not often we go for the showstopper when we’re baking along with The Great British Bake Off, but Ant really wanted to try his hand at Mille-feuille, Chou and Pâté Sucrée pastries on patisserie week and I have to say, he did brilliantly.

I loved the mille-feuille and the chou buns and eclairs were delicious but the strawberry tarts were my absolute favourite.

*Edit* Ant was delighted to win Star Baker for his bakes this week. Thanks, Jenny and Helen, you made his day!

Ant used Ruby’s Mille-feuille recipe for the pastry.

He made the Chantilly cream by whisking 600ml Double Cream, 50g Caster Sugar and 1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract together until stiff.

For the Chou Buns / Eclairs, he used Kim-Joy’s Recipe, filled them with Chantilly Cream and dipped them in melted Milk Chocolate.

The Pâté Sucrée for the Strawberry Tartlets used a recipe from The BBC Food Website, for the Pastry. The filling is just halved Strawberrys and packet Glaze made using Strawberry flavoured water.

So next week it’s the final and I have to say, I’m going to be a bit sad to say goodbye to GBBO for another year!

Danish Rye Bread Open Sandwiches #GBBOBloggers2018 Week 8

I really wanted to try the Danish aebleskiver but we don’t have one of those pans so Ant made the Danish rye bread open sandwiches instead.

I’m not a lover of rye bread, I have to admit so I haven’t tasted any of it. Ant made the open sandwiches for his lunch and he really enjoyed them.

He used Ruby’s recipe for the rye bread and did 2 different toppings. The first was Ham and Italiensk Salat and the second was Kartoffelmad (Potato Food)

We’re going to have fun doing the bake along next week as we’ll be in a caravan in sunny Mablethorpe and I can’t imagine they’ll have lots of baking equipment in there!
