The Great British Bake Off

I absolutely love The Great British Bake Off and am so happy it's back for a third season!

I actually dreamt about Rum Babas the other night - mine were over-proved and I was panicking about what Paul Hollywood would say.

I'm a big fan of the retro recipes popping up in this series and found this BBC article really interesting. I love how old recipes can be like a little window into the era they were written in  - the ingredients that were available, the quantities that were deemed appropriate or affordable and especially the food stying and photography!

Here are a few of my favourite pages from my beloved Good Housekeeping Complete Cookery Course...

This series of The Great British Bake Off has inspired me to hone my baking skills and branch out into pastry as well as try some new cakes! Watch this space.
