Bake Off Week One at The Headmaster’s House!

August 27, 2013

I finally sat down to watch the first episode of The Great British Bake Off on BBC this week and it has inspired me to try my hand at some new recipes inspired from each show.

So, here goes…

Week One – An Amazing Chocolate Creation

Chocolate Pistachio Cake

This Chocolate Pistachio Cake may not look the best, but it really is quite delicious.  The cake didn’t quite turn out as I had envisaged, the chocolate ganache didn’t coat the little petit four moulds as elegantly as I would have wished, but the ganache is very moreish and easy to make.  Based loosely on this Martha Stewart recipe.

Mary Berry may not be amazed by my chocolate creation…The Headmaster says this is best served with a glass of milk.
