‘The Great British Baking Show’: Recipes From the Show Are Now Available Online
The Great British Baking Show is a beloved competition baking series. Across the globe, fans delight in watching amateur bakers from the U.K. compete against one another to win the top baker prize. Over the course of 12 weeks, celebrity chefs Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith take the bakers through several rounds of signature bakes, technical challenges, and show stoppers to weed out the competition.
From flat-out fails to intricate and lavish bakes, bakers have come up with all kinds of interesting-looking and tasty treats. However, before now, it was hard for fans to make any of the delectable treats themselves.
Now, some of the most beloved recipes from The Great British Baking Show are available online.
Ingredients for the ‘The Great British Baking Show’ can be very expensive
It takes a great deal of time and effort even to apply to compete on The Great British Baking Show. Potential competitors must make two baked goods during the application process. Once they are chosen to be on the show, they are asked to practice their signature and showstopper bakes at home.
Sourcing ingredients for these massive bakes can be extremely extensive. “We were warned in the beginning that this was going to be an expensive experience, that we were going to have to spend some money,” 2014 finalist Chetna Makan told Digital Spy. “Because you don’t really get any money to practice at home. If you want to make the cake five times at home to practice, that’s your own problem, because they aren’t going to pay for it.”
However, when it comes to actually filming the show, all ingredients and costs are covered including any last-minute ingredients.
‘The Great British Baking Show’ bakes get eaten at the end of filming
Nothing goes to waste on The Great British Baking Show. With so much time, thought, and money spent on making these treats, BBC and Love Productions are extremely careful about food waste.
“It all gets eaten, but in a controlled way,” The Great British Baking Show’s chief home economist, Faenia Moore, told BBC Good Food. “It’s important for the bakers to eat what they’ve slaved over, so after each challenge, I make up a ‘baker’s basket’ to go to their lunchroom. Then any leftovers go to the crew lunch. Everyone gets quite excited so you have to say: ‘Step back, we need to do this in an orderly fashion.’”
Now, you can recreate the delicious recipes at home for yourself.
