Bake Off Week 5 - Alternative Week


I've finally caught up with Week 5 of Bake Off! (we'll pretend it hasn't finished...)


Week 5 was a bit of a hard one as it was free from - in my experience, free from stuff generally tastes a bit icky so I wasn't massively pumped for this week.

I must admit, I strayed from the brief a bit and went for brownies - these didn't appear in the show, but they are free from nonetheless. I used the Hemsley and Hemsley BB Brownie recipe, and even bought myself a shiny new food processor to whizz up the mixture.

All I can say about this is that these were the most expensive brownies I have ever made in my life. All the ingredients came to about £15 I think, but I did opt for coconut oil which bumped up the price.

Once you've got the recipe, they're pretty straight forward so I don't have any in between photos, but below are the finished results. They tasted pretty good -  a chocolate-y coconut-y mixture, but I think I'll stick to normal brownies unless I am entertaining coeliacs due to the price.


Have you got the Hemsley and Hemsley book? Did you watch bake off?
