Last night we saw Nancy crowned the winner of Series 5 of the Great British Bake Off. The last 10 weeks have been dramatic, with tears, tantrums, Mary Berry’s amazing jackets, the male judge, a whole lot of cake and let’s not forget #bingate. We’ve taken a look right back to Episode One, and we’re giving you the 25 best recipes for you to try yourself at home!
Episode 1: Cake Week.
Luckily, this recipe gives you a bit more guidance than the bakers got in the technical challenge. Just don’t cut the cherries too small like Jordan did…
Make thyme for these minis in your life, from the best baby baker in the world.
Queen of flavours brings you these.
Episode 2: Biscuits Week.
These have fruit in them, so they must be healthy. Have two portions.
Episode 3: Bread Week
Oh Richard, Star Baker a record 5 times, you were robbed. However, your Pesto pinwheel look great.
Episode 4: Dessert Week.
Tiramisu and Cake are the two best inventions known to humankind. The hybrid of the two is on another level.
Episode 5: Pies and Tarts Week
Episode 6: European Cake Week
Who could forget the week where nobody knew what the technical challenge was (I’m still not sure if I do).
So much flavour.
Episode 7: Pastry Week
Episode 8: Advanced Dough
No, I don’t know what it is either. But doesn’t it look pretty?
Doughnuts and Mojitos are a winning combo.
Episode 9: Patisserie
Yes, it must be 20 layers.
Episode 10: THE FINAL.
No pain, go gain.
And let’s not forget this, perhaps the best moment from the series
All hail King Norman.
