Cornish Pasty – The Great British Bake Off Technical Challenge Recipe
This is the short version of the Cornish Pasty recipe that the bakers had to follow in the fifth episode of the Season 1 of the Great British Bake Off. It wasn’t directly mentioned whose recipe was used – however, Cornish Pasties are Paul’s speciality, so the full recipe can be found here, should you want to practice. Also, if you want to check out my attempt at making them (although I did it without the time restrictions) then check here!
Some More Insights to the Challenge
The expectation today is to make 4 Cornish Pasties. The total time for the challenge is 1,5 hours.
This time there was not much discussion about what kind of instructions the bakers had and what kind they didn’t. We see some glimpses of their instruction sheets but nothing legible. So the instructions in the recipe are fully my own interpretation based on what the narrator warned about and what the bakers were afraid to do incorrectly.
P.S. I haven’t added any pictures of the expected result for these challenge posts on purpose. It will be a lot more fun if someone finds the challenge and doesn’t know what the end result has to look like! For the list of all Technical Challenge recipes I’ve added so far, go see this post here.
If you decide to do this challenge – good luck! Don’t forget to share some pictures of your end result with me afterward!
