I’ve finally got round to joining in with this linky! It shows how crazy the last few weeks have been that it has taken until the last week for me to be able to link up. A group of super creative bloggers have been busily producing their own versions of Great British Bake Off recipes, all led by Jenny from Mummy Mishaps (You may recognise the name from having read my post from earlier today announcing that Jenny will be the new co-host of Bake of the Week.
Along with millions of others, I watched the GBBO final last Wednesday and couldn’t wait to get in the kitchen. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this series – I honestly wasn’t bothered who won, but really felt inspired to try out some of the bakes. I also found that I had already baked a number of the categories which I will link up at the end of this post.
I really wanted a go at producing a Meringue Crown – I’ve probably told you all before how much I adore Meringues and Pavlovas. I couldn’t justify a huge bake this week though – We’ve got quite a bit of baking going on already and I needed to produce something I knew would get eaten.
So Palmiers it is! How versatile these lovely little pastries are – I make both sweet and savoury regularly but decided on savoury for this challenge with my Mushroom & Walnut Palmiers. Nuts and mushrooms are such a great combination and the crunch of the walnuts gives these Palmiers a little something extra.
Tesco kindly provided me with vouchers to create this recipe as part of their sponsorship of #GBBOBloggers2016. The base of these is a homemade mushroom pate that it just as wonderful spread on crackers – I use a tiny clove of garlic as I’m not a huge garlic fan but if you like garlic, go ahead and add more. I used Forestier Mushrooms and Closed Cup Mushrooms (which you will see from the picture were reduced. Yay!) Chestnut Mushrooms also go very well with these as do Dried Porcini Mushrooms. There is no way that I can make Mushroom Pate look appealing (See picture below) – You are just going to have to believe me that it tastes divine!
And so that is my entry into this year’s #GBBOBLoggers2016 – There are truly some fantastic creations over there – Click on the badge below to be transported over to Jenny’s blog and baking heaven.
