The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed the new hashtag in the heading of this post. I'm very happy to declare that for the next few weeks #BakeoftheWeek will be joining forces with the #GBBO Bloggers Bake Off to host our very own special linky. Bakers around the country are invited to join in with baking along with the theme of that week's Great British Bake Off. If you still wish to join in with #BakeoftheWeek but haven't made something in that's week's theme, don't worry I am still accepting your entries and they will be highlighted separately.
Myself and Jenny from Mummy Mishaps will be posting each week with our bakes (Finger crossed mine all turn out - I have a hilarious rate of baking failures that never even make it to the blog!)
We will be sharing your bakes across social media - For this year also, we are sharing anyone who bakes but does not have a blog (or time to post their blog post). If you share your bake with the hashtag #GBBOBakeoftheWeek then we will include. Anyone who blogs will get a special mention in our following week's roundup. Our linky will open on the Tuesday evening as the show airs and remain open until the follow Monday.
The Bake: Biscuits
So what is this week's theme? Biscuits! The signature bake is something that reflects the baker but also has a nod to a place in the UK. For my signature bake I chose a super quick recipe that is enjoyed by the whole family. We are all fans of ginger but I have also included lemon as a nod to our nearby Liverpool. Typically Liverpool Tart is a lemon tart (who knew, I didn't!) and the flavours combine really well together. These Ginger & Lemon Oat Cookies are prepared and baked in less than 20 minutes - add in the barest of cooling time and you can be eating them within half an hour. They are soft and chewy and perfect for packed lunches which start again from next week!
