Gluten Free Magic Bake Off – Week Five Roundup

The Bake Off tent was once again shaken by some shocking news this week, as we learnt that Mary Berry, bastion of baking and queen of the soggy bottom, would not be continuing on as a judge in the new Channel 4 edition of GBBO. Paul Hollywood, however, decided to “go with the dough”, accepting a three-year deal with the show.

Needless to say, this led to some rather heated debate here at Delicious Alchemy HQ (#TeamMary forever) but what we can all agree on is how fantastic our GFMBO bakers have been this week – and indeed every week!

It was a real struggle choosing winners, but we managed to narrow it down to these brilliant bakes.

Gluten Free Magic Bake Off – Week Four Roundup

¡Hola, panaderos!*

It was out of the frying pan and into the fryer for the remaining GBBO bakers last week, as they were faced with the never-before-seen challenges of stuffed Yorkshire puddings, lacy pancakes and churros in Batter Week.

Just as impressive were our fabulous batch of GFMBO bakers, with this week yielding the highest level of entries of any in the competition! Meet our latest crop of Weekly Winners:

Gluten Free Magic Bake Off – Week One Roundup

The tent has been erected, there’s a faint whiff of biscuits in the air (and we’re not talking about Paul Hollywood’s fake tan), and at least two people have been spotted weeping into their Genoese.

Oh yes – the Bake Off’s back!

Meanwhile, the first week of our Gluten Free Magic Bake Off is already drawing to a close, and we’ve been blown away by the incredible entries we’ve received so far!

Meet the GFMBO 2015 Champion: Jenny Swift

Our GFMBO 2015 winner, Jenny Swift, came to visit us here at Delicious Alchemy HQ last month. Part of her prize was a trip to the beautiful 2 Oxford Place in Leeds for gluten free afternoon tea, which you can read about here. The other part of her prize was to recreate her winning bake and have it professionally photographed right here at our office.

We love to celebrate getting creative in the kitchen and showing the world that gluten free doesn’t mean you have to miss out on any delicious baking. Jenny proved that with her three-tiered masterpiece, “Tickle Your Tastebuds – A Trio of Flavours” – click here for the recipe.
