Category Archives: F1 Bake Off 2019
Well, I’ve done it. Another year of F1 Bake Offs.
21 countries, 21 cakes. Some heavenly, some hellish, but most of all a lot of fun had.
For the final bake off of the year I have tried to make ‘Basboosa’, a simple cake made of yoghurt and sweet semolina… Continue reading
These yummy little empanadas are the perfect treat to munch whilst watching this weekend’s race.
This recipe is quick, easy and tastes divine.
Why not give it a go? Continue reading
You can’t beat cheesecake, so when I found a recipe for Japanese cheesecake I simply had to give it a go.
This cheesecake recipe is definitely worth having a go at making. Continue reading
I found the most wonderful recipe for this week’s Russian Grand Prix, ‘Limonnik’, a lemon pie that isn’t too sweet or too sour.
Like Goldilocks said: “It’s just right!” Continue reading
That sounded rather mysterious and exotic when I found the recipe.
It’s apparently the Asian vanilla, but bears no resemblance in taste or smell to what we know as vanilla. It’s quite neutral in taste and is mainly used for colour and aroma as it has an aromatic, sweet grassy smell.
For this week’s Singapore Grand Prix, I attempted (note the word attempted) to make a Pandan Chiffon Cake. Continue reading
A beautifully simple and delicious recipe for Italy, courtesy of Gino D’Acampo.
An orange and raspberry oven baked cheesecake … and I can confirm it is very, very tasty.
The perfect munch for this weekend’s race at Monza. Continue reading
The ‘Bodding’, to be precise, is this week’s F1 Bake Off for the Belgian Grand Prix.
But what is ‘Bodding’??
‘Brood’ is the Flemish word for bread, and they’ve simply smushed bread and pudding together to make ‘Bodding’. Or to put it another way, Bodding is simply bread pudding!
It’s a very easy recipe to make – messy, but simple. Continue reading
Another Formula 1 race, another Bake Off.
I found so many great tortes for the German Bake Off, I was spoilt for choice. My favourite, just for the name alone, was Beinenstich Kuchen or Bee Sting Cake, but I had to discount that one as it had nuts in … and small boy has a slight allergy.
So in the end I plumped for ‘Alexander Torte’, which is an East German cake that has its roots in Latvia.
I can tell you this is definitely worth baking. Continue reading
