Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Divine chocolate layer cake

    • joneshayley on August 17, 2019

      Lovely and relatively easy if time consuming- it’s soooo rich though- a chocolate lovers dream

  • Aztec cookies

    • Ro_ on January 13, 2020

      I used regular dark chocolate as I'm not fond of coffee flavour. These were very nice chocolate cookies, with a perfect cookie texture.

  • Little bridge rolls

    • Ro_ on January 07, 2021

      Very nice little rolls. I did the second prove overnight, and was worried they hadn't risen much and would be very close, but in fact the texture was great and the crust was perfect - not too crusty, not too soft. My only regret is that I just ground in a bit of salt without measuring, and it wasn't enough. I'll make these again, great with soup or as the book suggests with pulled pork or something delicious inside, as alternatives to sliders for example.

Reviews about Recipes in this Book

  • Mary's treacle tart

    • Fuss Free Flavours

      it’s stuck a little between a rock and a hard place in terms of assumptions of skill and experience. Treacle tart is pretty straightforward, so if you’ve made it before you don’t really need a recipe

Publishers Text

The Great British Bake Off is a glorious celebration of Britain's favourite pastime. As the series has shown us, baking is the perfect way to mark an occasion - to celebrate, to congratulate and reward, and to lift spirits. This new book is inspired by the wonderful creations from The Great British Bake Off 'Showstopper Challenge'. Covering a wide range of bakes from large and small cakes, biscuits and cookies, sweet and savoury pastry, puddings, breads, and patisserie, this book will show you how to bake beautiful enticing recipes to wow at every occasion. There are dainty bakes for afternoon tea; quick bakes perfect for bake sales, school fairs, or coffee with friends; mouthwatering desserts; breads and pastry recipes for lunches and dinner parties; and some really special bakes for birthdays and festive celebrations throughout the year. The book will show you how to make your bake extra special from exciting finishes using chocolate curls and ribbons and spun sugar to simple ideas for icing, shaping, and decorating so you can bring a touch of magic to any bake. Great British Bake Off also includes the 'Best of the Bake-off' - the finest recipes from the new set of Great British Bake Off amateur bakers and all of Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood's Technical Challenges from the series. If you learned How to Bake from last year's book, Showstoppers will take you to the next level of skill and combined with a dazzling new design and superb photography, this will be an irresistible gift for yourself or someone else.
