F1 Bake Off – Round 21 – Abu Dhabi

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

F1 Bake Off – Round 20 – Brazil

It’s the penultimate ‘bake off’ of the year, and this week I’ve chosen a super simple recipe for biscuits that will go down a treat whilst you’re watching this weekend’s race.

‘Biscoitos de maizena’ or cornflour cookies, because that’s what they’re made from.

They taste amazing and are gluten-free! 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

F1 Bake Off – Round 16 – Russia

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

F1 Bake Off – Round 15 – Singapore

Pandan extract.

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

F1 Bake Off – Round 14 – Italy

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

F1 Bake Off – Round 13 – Belgium

Bodding!

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
