Bake Off’s back tonight at the usual time. May the bottoms be soggy and the cakes taste divine…
This summer saw the launch of The Great British Bake Off App which meant that baking fans from novices to experts could set their taste buds tingling with a range of impressive and tasty recipes easily accessible on their iPhone. The app contains fifty fabulous recipes to whip up at home, based on The Great British Bake Off books published by BBC Books in conjunction with Love Productions. All of the recipes in the app are selected from the best-selling book, The Great British Bake Off: How to Bake and the new book for this year, How to Turn Everyday Bakes into Showstoppers.

“Fridge and Pray is the new Keep Calm and Carry On,” astutely observed @KaisaJaye during the baking hot show.
After the previous episode’s stay of execution for the bakers after John’s unfortunate injury, Week 7 sadly saw the departure of Sarah-Jane and Ryan from the competition. It was fittingly dubbed ‘The One With Too Many Goodbyes’ by @TeacupCupcakes in the post-show #BakeOffFriends game on Twitter.
Everybody lives! They all survived! The shock ending to GBBO’s Pudding Week provoked a huge outpouring of relief on Twitter and Facebook following poor John’s kitchen accident.
