I got to spend some time with John Whaite, 2012 winner of the Great British Bake Off, in the Spring when I attended one of his baking masterclasses. A really nice guy who loves his food as much as I do. It was fascinating to talk to him, hear about his Great British Bake Off experience and discover what great projects it’s leading to today.
One of those projects is teaming up with National Baking Week. A week when John urges us to get into the kitchen and start baking. National Baking Week is about raising funds for Great Ormond Street hospital who want to raise money to go towards building a new kitchen on the hospital’s respiratory ward.
In fact you can raise funds too by baking John’s cakes and selling them!
John has devised some excellent recipes for the occasion which I am pleased to publish here for you, just click on the image above to download them directly and get baking. The recipes include – and I got to taste them all during the masterclass
Apple and blackberry brioche galette
Fillet steak and stilton pasties
Gluten Free pistachio and chocolate torte
Simple salted caramel and chocolate swiss roll
Peanut butter and jelly cupcakes.
My overall favourite, one I went back for a couple of tastes it was that good was
