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)

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
