It’s week 5 of the Great Irish Bake Off Challenge. We have a winner from Week 4 and the judges have set us a new task.
Last week’s challenge was to bake either creme caramel or a multi-layered merginue show stopper. There was a big increase in entries this week, with even more people attempting the creme caramel and deciding not to enter. It was a very difficult task so well done if you got a wobble!
The winner this week was Dudara from Stitch And Bear foodblog. It was (once again) a unanimous verdict with all 3 judges remarking on your even custard, lack of bubbles and colour of carmel. 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 again that I’m not going to be able to put up all the photographs, instead I’ve compiled a quick collage of the best bits.
The other blogger who participated & blogged about their baking endeavours this week is:
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 5 Challenge
After a little chat from the judges we have decided to give only 1 option this week. That is a (key) lime pie. As it’s very difficult to acquire key limes in Ireland, a lime pie will do. Now remember because it came from the pastry challenge week, your base must be pastry and not biscuit.
Either way the judges will require the following shots of your bake to see how you got on during the week:
- Your bake from above
- The obligatory soggy bottom shot!
- A shot of a slice
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!
