Great British Bake Off: Episode 5
Did you catch Great British Bake Off last night? Don’t worry if you missed it as the UKMums.TV team are all huge fans and on hand to bring you the latest GBBO news! We’re incredibly excited by the new series of the nation’s favourite baking competition and are bringing you Bake Off news each week. So keep tuning in for the latest on each episode!
Last night was Pastry Week and with just eight bakers left, Mary and Paul were looking for perfection. They set three challenges to test the bakers on three very different types of pastry. For the signature challenge it is breakfast time, Danish style.
In the technical challenge, Mary asks the bakers to keep their cool, giving them limited time and instructions to bake a classic British tart - the Bakewell. Mel takes a shift at a London Turkish bakery making baklava, and she discovers the history of this delicate desert that hailed from the palaces of Sultans.
And finally there was a bite-size showstopper, a fine pastry which notoriously difficult to make and even trickier to bake. Everyone loves a bit of Filo and the Amuse Bouche were certainly pleasing to the eye!
This week’s Star baker was Jane who produced a host of Danish Patries that were flaky and buttery plus a Bakewell tart that held its own! To much outcry, fitness wannabe Val left the show after her Bouche's failed to Amuse the judges.
