Great British Bake-off cakes....what recipes have you tried?

    One of my colleagues downloaded the cake recipes from last week's final. He made Tamil's sticky toffee pudding cake with dates, nuts and figs. Although it became more of a bun cake (the centre didn't cook as well), it was absolutely delicious. I would be curious about what other recipes from chefs that you guys have tried and were successful (or not)?

    Me: scones - taste like them, don't look like them!

    I enjoyed that article. They are challenges for the best bakers in the country so it was a foolish undertaking.

    I had planned to do a weekly bake through the GBBO but then I broke my knee. I will have to do that next year. I doubt they will be inspired by the technical challenges though. They often fail my effort:yumminess ratio test!

    There is no way I could even come close to attempting what they try and do on that show!
    I have only just got the hang of making decent brownies!!

    On the Masterclass on TV last night, Paul Hollywood make those 'arlettes'. What looked like around four hours work for eight biscuits. You'd need to be committed to do something like that. I think I'd end up being 'committed' but in a very different way...
