About this Bake

As a German it offends me a little whenever German bakes appear in the Bake Off because usually they don't resemble the actual German recipe anymore. So after cake week I had to make a real black forest cake. Also why do people insist calling it gateaux?

Top tip

Read the recipe at least twice before starting to bake.
