Last week’s challenge was to bake an 8 strand plaited loaf. We had loads of entries and considering we requested 3 photos per entry the judges had a hard time selecting the eventual winner. Who by now has recognised her picture above!
Well done Sarah from Yummynom foodblog. Please email me directly with your address and telephone contact details so that I can arrange for the lovely people from Dr Oetker Baking Ireland to dispatch your prize (see below).
We had so many entries in fact that I’m not going to be able to put up all the photographs without my poor computer clapping out from the strain of transferring to the website. Instead I’ve compiled a quick collage of the best bits. If that doesn’t make you want to have a slice of fresh buttered bread or toast with a mug of tea I don’t know what will.
Other bloggers who participated & blogged about their baking endeavours this week are (there are more to come I’ve only got 1 blogpost at the moment):
This is a blog/tweet hop but is not restricted to bloggers or tweeters. In order to enter you must either tweet me ( @wholesomeIE ) using the hastag #GIrishBO your picture of the recipe of the week or email me your photo. If you’re a blogger or aren’t on twitter and wish to enter, please also email me wholesomecook(at)gmail(dot) com details of your blog so that I can link to your website and give you full credit.
Week 3 Challenge
Next week’s challenge is slightly different to the ones that have gone before. You have a choice. You can either bake a Treacle Tart as per the technical challenge on the Great British Bake Off this week OR you can bake a classic apple tarte tatin. We’re limiting it to apple so as to be fair to all the entrants because we can’t taste your delicious baking. Mind you I wish I could! Click on the name to be directed to the BBC Food website for the exact recipe of the treacle tart. Either way the judges would like the following photographs so that they can evaluate your bake.
- A slice shot so that they can see your filling/pastry ratio and how wet your tart is.
- A shot of the underneath of the same slice so they can see if you have a soggy bottom.
As you bake in the week ahead use the hashtag for advice and any questions.
Remember this is a bit of fun to challenge your baking skills. Don’t take it too seriously but do enjoy yourself and we are really looking forward to seeing your efforts this week!
