Default The Great British Baking Show, Recipes Please

This sheltering in place and smoky air is making me so, darn fat! I've been laying low, sitting around, binge watching, "The Great British Baking Show," lately and now, all I want to do is to try my hand at baking cakes, trifles, bakewells and rough puff pastry. Id love some typically, British baking recipes, if anyone has any. My waistline will hate you for it, buy my psyche will be in seventh heaven. Thanks.

One of Scottish grannies recipe is similar to Bakewell tart but it was her failsafe to use up the last bit of pastry from making pies. I also use it .....cut out the shells and put them in your baking tins.... Put a teaspoon of jam or jelly in the bottom......mix up coconut with an egg or eggs depending on how many tarts you are doing, spoon on top of the jam/ jelly and bake. Sorry no amounts because it is so easy, I wing it.

I love that show!! They have such wonderful ideas and such yummy treats!
DH's grandmother was born in England and she was the best baker! We loved everything that she made!

One of the things she made was Current Pasties - I tried to find a recipe but they weren't quite the same and had apples and raisns included. If anyone has a recipe please share!

Mary Berry has some good traditional recipes availiable online. This is our all time favorite a lemon drizzle tray bake https://www.maryberry.co.uk/recipes/...izzle-traybake. Her recipes always seem to work for me.

If you don’t already own a set a scales for weighing you ingredients consider buying some. I avoided it for years but have to say good kitchen scales make baking a breeze.

Oh, this show is one of my favorites to watch while sewing. Ok need to ask what is caster sugar & I am assuming a traybake is a cookie sheet?

Caster sugar is a particular size, it's not quite what we have as granulated and not quite powdered, but slightly in-between.

This doesn't hit all the terms but looks like a good place to start adventures in British Baking:

We also love the non-American English different pronunciations of things like ory-gone-o, that we pronounce/spell oregano.

Not food related and I've gotten down what is Class 2 building, but I'm still trying for what makes a bedroom a "single" or a "double". I guess you know it when you see it.

Tropit- maybe instead you should watch quilting shows. As far as I know none of us eat fabric

i love that show!
some of their flavor combinations make me cringe, but that's half the fun of watching.
my mixer is still gathering dust but - one of these days - i'm going to finally give in to the urge to try some of those recipes.

i will have to throw out my bathroom scale first, though. lol

i'm looking forward to the new season/series.
it rolls out on the 25th of September, on Netflix.
