Tarte au Citron – The Great British Bake Off Technical Challenge Recipe
This is the short version of the Tarte au Citron recipe that the bakers had to follow in the second episode of the Season 2 of the Great British Bake Off. This one is once again Mary Berry’s recipe – the full recipe can be found here.
Some More Insights to the Challenge
This time the bakers have 1,5 hours to make the tart. The tart should be lovely, the pastry cases should be perfectly gold and crisp underneath with a smooth filling – like Mary says, “not a bubble in it”. It is mentioned that the recipe the bakers have does not specify how the pastry should be mixed or what the consistency should be when rolled. We do get some glimpses of the recipe but, unfortunately, nothing really legible – so my interpretation below is based on what I hear is not included or what steps the bakers are not so sure about.
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 afterwards!
