I’m not much of a ‘live’ TV viewer (more of a binge Netlix user!), but the three programmes I make an exception for are Masterchef, The Great British Sewing Bee and, of course, BAKE OFF. I’m still not exactly sure what makes Bake Off such compelling viewing considering it’s just a bunch of people whisking up eggs and watching oven doors but the magic mix of Mary Berry, Mel and Sue and the Hollywood Death Stare has got me hooked. Along with most of the country.
I won’t spoil it too much in case you haven’t caught up yet, but Week One’s technical challenge was to make… Jaffa Cakes! Honestly, you’d have thought some of them had never heard of a Jaffa cake by the way they went about it so I decided to give it a go and see if it was really as difficult as some of them made it look.
