    Great British Bake Off

    Have no shame in admitting I love this show. Guilty pleasure and all that. Or self loathing given that Im a coeliac Don't bake either.

    No idea why watching people bake cakes is so interesting. I guess its the least rigged form of reality tv.

    And other fans on here or will the tumbleweed gif be needed

    What channel is it on and when? I love watching cooking/baking shows and now that I have access to British TV, I'm interested in finding things to watch.

    Love the ads on British TV too btw..... so much better than the typical Yank ones I'm used to

    I'm with you on this haha. We watch it as a family too so will probably be a day behind as we're going to watch it tomorrow with the kiddies. I wonder who Mr Hollywood will take a liking to this year, it's always the young ones haha.

    It's on BBC1 CF so no adverts

    The guy with the hat, tut tut. Trying to be clever with all the tasks. Why not be clever with one and go with what you know.


    Found a bag of flour in the press. 6 ingredient cake on the back. It's in the oven now, let's see how well I fuck this up

    I say this every year!! You can see the way he looks at them. Dirty buggar.

    Used to endure the first couple of series as the missus watched but then started getting into it.

    Also Mel Giedroyc probably makes it onto one of those weird crush lists.
    Or is that just me?

    Bake taste time Derm. How is it?

    There's about a quarter of it left

    150g self raising flour
    125g sugar
    100g softened butter
    2 eggs
    rind of a lemon
    juice of a lemon

    Mix it up, put it in a greased tray, preheated oven at 170 for 40 minutes. Done.

    I'm sure there's a soggy bottom joke about Hollywood here somewhere

    Mel & Sue certainly make the show entertaining, not sure either would make a crush list haha

    Haha, saw this recorded last night and thought about watching it with the missus but decided to let her watch it in her own time.

    Maybe I should get into it after all!

    Twat in a hat was shocking. Felt sorry for the woman who's gateaux didn't set properly. Early days yet so I have no favourite at the moment haha

    I watched it

    That woman (Dorret?) was cocky earlier on then. I did feel sorry for her but not as much as I usually would.

    That Stu was clueless. He may have been a good baker but he went a bit too far outside the box.

    Well - this is a popular new thread - are we all getting old?!

    It's hugely popular - think I only watched 1 episode (think it was final last year) but liked it - new series now is it? Will maybe record it

    I fecking LOVE a dessert

    I'm a crap cook but did start baking this year - love a pud so even if I fuck it up its fun and will go down the neck anyway

    Is that Mel and Sue still on there - probably the most unfunny people I have ever seen - VERY annoying

    I think her gateaux was fine, it was sitting it on mousse that had absolutely no chance of setting was her downfall. She'd have been better off putting on top of scoops of ben and jerry's

    We caught up over the weekend. No surprises to see Unga go, nothing went right for her on the day although it was a surprise to see Ian struggling after winning three times in a row.

    Nice to see someone different won star baker - Nadiya(?) has grown as the weeks go on. I think Jamal and Alvin will go all the way too.

    Glad Ugne went, irritating as fuck!

    Amazes me how some of them don't know whether what they are baking will work or not since they know what they will be baking. And then attempting stuff they haven't done before. Solid with a small bit of flair keeps you in nearly every week. Alvin's pineapple sugar free cake looked a small bit on the plain side but because it was a decent bake he got good marks for it.

    I think Ian will pick up again but Tamal is my tip to win it. He has a bit more creativity than the others and when his bake is bad it's not terrible. It's a pretty even race in the final 6 though. Mat and Paul probably done well to come through the earlier rounds but they are now focusing on getting the bake right and then the trimmings afterwards, which is the best method really.

    Ah, Tamal. I thought it was Jamal. He likes an injection, doesn't he?

    Quarter finals night. Paul to go tonight. Flora still seems to slip under the radar and think she will again tonight. Not a hope of surviving next week though imo.
