Baking with the Bake Off: week one

12 Aug

A foodie blog would be nothing without a mention of Great British Bake Off.

And as a keen baker, mine is definitely no exception!

For the last few series I’ve loved reading various blogs where their bloggers are baking along with the series and so in tribute to the latest series, I’ve decided to have a go myself.

Ok so I’m a week late but better late than never eh?
Last week was cake week, a great way to see what the bakers were made off.

In case you need your memory refreshing, the bakers made a Madeira, a Black Forest gateau, and a frosted walnut cake.

I can’t stand walnut cake and the gateau seemed like a lot of effort, plus I’ve never actually made a Madeira so that settled it.

I decided to keep it simple and stick with lemon and boy am I glad I did. It’s lovely!

I didn’t get a crack in the top though so I’m sure I did something wrong… 

Having watched this week’s episode, I think I’ll give arlettes a go. Watch this space!

What do you think of the series so far?
