The Great British Bake Off 6x05 Live Blog
Hello, and welcome to the live blog of the fifth episode of the sixth series of The Great British Bake Off! This episode is all about alternative ingredients, although hopefully the bakes will be nicer than those cardboard and dust flavoured things you get in the Free From aisle at Tesco.
This week, the bakers have to make a sugar-free cake, gluten free pitta bread, and dairy-free ice-cream rolls. Expect to see an awful lot of honey and gluten-free flour, and an awful lot more spectacular cockups as bakers used to caster sugar and butter are forced to experiment with chickpeas and coconut milk. Hold on to your carrot cakes, here we go.
(Suggestions for this week’s GBBO snack are vegan cookies and meringues. But it’s fine if you crack and have a big double chocolate fudge cake with vanilla bean ice-cream, we won’t tell)
