Bake Brave – World Baking Day 2013

May 18, 2013

As some of you may know Sunday 19th May is World Baking Day and this year they are encouraging us all the Bake Brave, eek!

I like to bake and I regularly do but it is always simple things like banana bread or lemon drizzle, occasionally I’ll branch out into cupcakes, brownies and carrot cake. I very rarely make any kind of pastry, once a year I make a pumpkin pie and that is the only time I will attempt it.

In honour of Baking Brave I have chosen to make the Treacle Tart at level 71. This is one of my favourite puddings and reminds me of school dinners; it must be years since I last had some. This is well outside my comfort zone but still something I’m happy to attempt.

I’m hoping, if successful, to update the post with a photo of the finished product. Are you going to have a go at Baking Brave and what will you challenge yourself to make?

I baked the Treacle Tart, hooray! It doesn’t look pretty but it tasted good and that’s the main thing. I am really am not a natural at making pastry (Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood would have something to say for sure!) but I’m happy with how it turned out.
