Delving into my past

WDYTYA

So Bake Off has started and it seems that you guys still love it. A huge 9.3million of you tuned in for episode 1 to see us revive the Black Forest Gateau and we can’t thank you enough. We love making the show and have such fun in the tent, so we are chuffed to bits that you guys enjoy it as much as us. There will be no spoilers on my blog as that would ruin it for everyone, but keep an eye on my FB page for suggestions of which recipes you might want to have a go at and eat whilst watching.

This week is Biscuit Week and I will definitely be knocking up a batch of my shortbread to nibble on whilst watching. If you haven’t had a go at my recipe yet I really recommend it as it’s super easy and you can flavour it as you like. The recipe is here. It’s a particularly good recipe to make with the kids. I am sure lots of you are looking for ways to entertain them during the long summer holidays and I can safely say I have never met a kid who doesn’t enjoy a bit of baking (and eating!) biscuits.

This week I am on the telly two days in a row! After appearing on Bake Off on Wednesday night I am back on Thursday night on Who Do You Think You Are? I have always wanted to go on this show and was honoured to be asked by the BBC to take part. It was a privilege to be able to delve into my past in such detail and magical to find out such incredible facts about some of my favourite family members. I hope you enjoy watching.

Happy Baking!
