The seventh signature of Bake Off 2019 was to make 24 Festival Buns, buns that take on the theme of a festival or holiday from around the world.

Bake Off 2019, Desserts

Pistachio Matcha Layered Meringue Cake

The sixth signature of Bake Off 2019 was to make a layered meringue cake with at least 3 layers and large enough to share with friends.

Classic Sultana and Apricot Teacakes

Teacakes always remind me of my primary school days when me and my mum used to go to the breakfast club before school and have a toasted teacake for 30p. Times have changed and the teacakes in the supermarket just don’t compare to freshly baked homemade teacakes, warm from the oven and with lots of… Continue reading Classic Sultana and Apricot Teacakes
