I imagine that just about every baking blogger who watches the Great British Bake Off will be trying out a few, if not all, of the technical bakes as the series progresses. This is going to be my new challenge!
This morning I set to work making Mary Berry’s Angel Food Cake to take to a family bbq. I found the recipe on the BBC Food website and followed it to the letter as I was a little scared by it! Any recipe with way more eggs than flour always seems like it could go wrong in so many ways.
Here are a few photos from this morning’s baking. Yes I did take a small slice. I needed to check for quality obviously!
My new cake tin especially for this occasion. Not an angel food cake tin but it worked!
This recipe is ace as it uses both parts of the egg so there is no waste.

Out of the tin!
Ok, so I had a small slice! It’s really light in texture and colour. It might be a little to dark on the outside but it doesn’t affect the taste. Perfect!
Making the lemon curd using up the egg yolks and lemons.
Over a litre of lemon curd!
The entire tub of whipped cream!
