GBBO – European cake week

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…

    I have never seen a round cake like this – very cool.

      Thank you- much easier to do if you use a spherical cake pan.


i'd love to hear from you...
