I'm Back... and So's the GBBO!

Well firstly I will apologize for my lack of posts recently as I've been away a lot and desperately caught up within all the Olympic hype! I love sport and so being able to watch it in our home country was amazing. Although my mum and I were unable to get tickets, I still cheered on Team GB and was glued to the telly (even while camping!). I'm also a big fan of Tom Daley so to see him get a bronze was great. I was also happy for Mo and Jess Ennis in succeeding in their bid for gold.

Anyway, enough about sport. I promise that there will be a recipe blog coming soon but I was equally excited about the return of The Great British Bake Off on Tuesday nights. Last week saw a delight of upside-down cake, rum babas and a cake that produces a hidden design when sliced into. Now, being born in the 90's meant that I was unfamiliar with Rum Babas but I think they look delicious; although my mum says she'll never go near one! I've also decided I might try one of the upside down cakes off of the show. John's Toffee Apple Upside down cake caught my eye, as well as Manisha's Vanilla, Peach and Raspberry Upside down and Sarah-Jane's Pear, Chocolate and Hazlenut Cake. I can't wait for tonight's episode which is all about Bread.

Another one of my favourite chef's is back on our screens and she is Lorraine Pascale. She first caught my attention with he show "Baking Made Easy"  and "Lorraine's Last Minute Christmas" but she is back with "Lorraine's Fast, Fresh and Easy Food". Last night's episode was about feel good food. I looovee feel good food. Some of her mouth watering recipes shown were Butternut and Sweet Potato Lasagne, her Shameless Shortcut Cake Pops (a playful looking biscuit-based chocolate lolly) and Sweet and Sour Pork Balls.

Happy Baking!
