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…

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla If you have come as a baker my blog is i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)
