Since the purchase of my electric stand mixer, I’ve decided to work through a good proportion of Paul Hollywood’s – How to Bake at a speed of, on average, two bakes a week
Rhubarb and pastry cream pies

Rhubarb and pastry cream pies

Bakken met Paul Hollywood. Perfect to try new ways of using this pink vegetable, like in these cute little pies made of phyllo dough, filled with pastry cream and topped with sweet roasted rhubarb
Apple & Blackberry Marscapone Tart

Apple & Blackberry Marscapone Tart

I got the recipe for the sweet shortcrust pastry from Paul Hollywood’s Pie’s & Puddings book. I highly recommend it to anyone who is a bit uneasy when it comes to pastry as there are some lovely step by step pictures to help you
Another week full of baking

Another week full of baking

I also had my first attempt at Naan Bread, based on a recipe by Paul Hollywood. I made curried mango & sultana naan for myself and plain savoury naan for my husband (as he doesn't do sweet and savoury together)
Christmas Stollen

Christmas Stollen

Adapted from Paul Hollywood's Stollen recipe. The rich bread filled with fruit and sweet almond marzipan really evokes my time studying abroad for me now
G is for Gooseberry Pie

G is for Gooseberry Pie

This recipe comes from Paul Hollywood’s book British Baking. I’ve been wanting to make ‘hot water pastry’ for some time now, but most of you will know that I’m a ‘sweet’ baker (in more ways than one I hope), in that I enjoy baking sweet things and not savoury dishes

Paul Hollywood confirmed that he would be staying with the show, making him the only one to remain. Mary wanted the bakers to produce a crisp buttery pastry and Paul said this challenge was all about time management
Brioche

Maybe if you have a better palate than mine, you will be able to pick out the freshness of lemon zest and sweet vanilla but who am I kidding
Orange Raisin Scones

Orange Raisin Scones

My Orange Raisin Scones adapted from Paul Hollywood’s recipe for plain scones that include, not only butter and milk to enrich the scone mixture, but eggs too

Empanadas: GBBO Week #7

I used Paul Hollywood's Empanada pastry recipe, and I made two of my own different fillings, a vegetarian one with pepper and spring onion, and a chorizo and onion one
Tarted up

Tarted up

 This recipe for shortcrust is from Paul Hollywood’s How to Bake.  Top that with a dessert so sweet you won’t get a wink of sleep and a stodgy side roll
Apple Roses (Vegan)

Apple Roses (Vegan)

When you make puff pasty at home you use butter, however the shop bought puff pastry is generally vegan friendly, well Jus rol is totally vegan friendly, which means they don’t use butter ( so I guess you could say it’s not proper puff pastry) Would Paul Hollywood recommend it
Erlenbacher Premium Apple Pie review

Erlenbacher Premium Apple Pie review

How to Bake by Paul Hollywood. Well, OK, it doesn't actually, but there's something very comforting and satisfying about a slice of juicy, sweet but slightly tart appley goodness
