Hollywood Bakes are Baked!

Posted on: October 23rd, 2015 by Harriet Low No Comments

I am so very excited to finally tell you all about a secret project that I have been working on for a while . . . #HollywoodBakes. I know lots of you love to bake your own bread, but often don’t have time to do it regularly, so I have crafted a range of wholesome, ready-to-bake bread rolls which will bring a bit of Hollywood magic to your kitchen! There are seeded, multi-seed and crusty rolls to start and they can be found in Waitrose, Ocado and selected Tescos. I really hope you like them.

So #GBBO is over for another year and what a series it was. As usual our bakers raised the standard for home baking yet again and Mary and I were both thrilled to crown Nadiya Bake Off Champion 2015. Don’t forget if you fancy baking in the tent next year you can apply HERE.

I have another secret project starting shortly, which means the next few weeks will see me travelling here, there and everywhere.  I wish I could tell you more, but I can’t, although I can say it will involve me trying a lot of interesting International bakes! Keep an eye on my Facebook for more clues coming soon!

If you fancy seeing me bake live and you can travel to London or Birmingham then you are in luck, as I will be appearing at two of the BBC Good Food Show’s this autumn. Firstly I will be at the London show on the 13th, 14th & 15th of November and then two weeks later I will be in Birmingham. Joining me on stage will be my favourite TV judge Bezza! Finally just before Christmas when the weather is getting super dreary in the UK I am jetting off to Dubai for my first ever appearance at the BBC Good Food Show there. I am so excited about this and can’t wait to see all of you who live out there. Will it be too hot for a mince pie or two?! For more details on these shows check out my calendar.

Finally don’t think I have forgotten that it’s Halloween soon. To get in the spooky spirit of things why not get baking with your kids and try out my Pumpkin Cheesecake or my Sticky Toffee Apple Cakes. You can find both recipes in my pudding section on the website.

Happy Baking!

Sticky Toffee Apple Puddings

Posted on: October 19th, 2015 by Harriet Low No Comments

1. Butter six individual pudding moulds and dust with flour.

2. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/gas 4.

3. In a bowl mix the flours, sugar, baking flour and mixed spice.

4. Beat together the oil, milk and eggs. Pour this onto the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Finally fold in the apples, dates and toffee pieces.

4. Pour into the prepared moulds.

5. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Test they are cooked through by inserting a skewer. It should come out clean.

6. Make the sauce by melting together the butter, sugar and cream. Bring to the boil and cook until the sauce coats the back of the spoon, around 3-4 minutes.

7. To serve, de-mould the puddings and pour over the toffee sauce. Eat with ice cream or pouring cream.
