GBBO – European cake week

baking, cakes, GBBO, thermomix, Uncategorized

The technical challenge this week in the Great British Bake Off was Mary Berry's version of the Swedish princess cake. I posted my attempt at this little treasure last October using Peggy Porschen's take on the theme. I sat there feeling sorry for them not being able to use a Thermomix for the creme pat, jam, or the sponge- poor dears!

The recipe is here is you'd like to have a go.

I made another version for a friend at the weekend and thought I'd add some photos of this one. I used my 6″ dome shaped cake pan and an ordinary 6″ pan. For the most part I used the recipe from my wonderful Miette book, and adapted it for the Thermomix.

Happy baking…

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne
