The Great British Bake Off is back and we couldn’t be happier! The much-loved show has hit our screens again this year and so far, it hasn’t disappointed. The last few weeks have seen some baking triumphs and plenty of disasters, the bakers have made a selection of delights including mini rolls, malt loaf and focaccia. All of this baking has got us in the mood to create some sweet treats of our own, luckily Parcel Pete has packed his apron and he’s come up with some of his favourite recipes, we can’t wait to get started.
Starting with a classic, this flapjack recipe is sure to impress Paul and Prue, and if not, your friends and family will be happy to devour the lot.
Classic, sweet and chewy, this flapjack recipe by Lorraine Pascale is hard to beat. The thing we love most about this recipe is how simple it is to make; it only contains four ingredients (and some optional extras) so it’s perfect for even novice bakers.
Simply melt the butter in a pan over medium heat and add the sugar and golden syrup (we’re using maple flavour). Once the sugar is dissolved and the butter is melted stir in the oats and press the mixture into a baking tin. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes, remove and cut into squares and enjoy!
Now we’re not sure whether brownies will feature in this year’s show but these gooey Biscoff brownies would certainly be a showstopper.
This Jane’s Patisserie brownie recipe is the perfect way to prepare yourself for the technical challenge and they’re delicious too!
Start by preheating your oven and melt the dark chocolate with the butter, while this is cooling whisk the eggs and caster sugar until it is thick. Next, you will need to combine the melted chocolate and butter with the eggs and sugar, ensuring that you mix it carefully. Add in the plain flour, cocoa powder, chocolate chips and chopped Biscoff Biscuits. Pour the mixture into the tin and fold in several spoonfuls of Biscoff Spread. Bake the brownies for 30-35 minutes until they’re firm but still gooey inside. Finally, Parcel Pete has added a twist to this recipe that would really impress the Bake-Off judges. Drizzle the brownies with Biscoff Topping Sauce to add a delicious sweet depth.
Rocky Road is a firm favourite and if you’re prone to a baking disaster, this Good Food recipe by Aaron Goodall is pretty fail-proof.
To start you will need to crush the digestive biscuits in a freezer bag until they are broken into small pieces. Set the digestives aside and melt the butter, dark chocolate and golden syrup in a pan until melted. Next, take the crushed biscuits and mini marshmallows and stir into the chocolate mixture until they are completely covered. Add the mixture to a lined baking tray and chill for at least two hours. Finally, chop the rocky road into squares, serve to your friends and prepare yourself for that star baker title.
Above are just some of Parcel Pete’s favourite recipes to get you in The Bake-Off spirit. Whether you’re a baking novice or a soon to be star baker, we can’t wait for you to try these recipes. You can shop the items mentioned above here.
