Recipe by the BBC’s Great British Bake Off Winner John Whaite

Serves 8 – 10

“Brioche galette has to be one of my favourites of the patisserie world. The custard complements perfectly the buttery brioche, and the addition of the fruits here just cuts through all of that richness. This is a real treat indeed, quite tricky to do, but we all love a good challenge, especially one as tasty as this!”

“Who says pasties can’t be posh? This is a perfect Friday night treat to be shared with the one you love, or a good mate, with a glass of red or an ice cold beer.”

Gluten Free Pistachio and Chocolate TorteWEB-Chocolate-Torte-jpg

 

Recipe by the BBC’s Great British Bake Off Winner John Whaite

Serves 8 – 10

“Gluten intolerance seems to becoming more and more common. In my eyes though, that is no reason not to enjoy home baked goodies. This torte is spectacular, and really hits the sweet spot. Due to the large amount of nuts, it does keep particularly well and is probably even better the day after it is made!”

Simple Salted Caramel and Chocolate Swiss RollWEB-Swiss-Roll

 

Recipe by the BBC’s Great British Bake Off Winner John Whaite

Serves 6 – 8

“It saddens me to think that Swiss roll is something scoffed at. So many people imagine an overly sweet, sugary roll filled with cheap jam and it seems to put them off. I would say: try this Swiss roll and rekindle the love!”

“This recipe barely takes 30 minutes to make, from start to finish. Not that I think there will even be a crumb of this left, but it really is best eaten on the day of making, because the sponge itself contains no butter.”

Makes 12

“Baking with kids is such fun, but the last thing you want is a really technical recipe that will just confuse them. This one mix cupcake recipe couldn’t be easier, and the flavour, texture and lightness isn’t at all sacrificed by that.“
