Series 7 Recipes from the Great British Bake Off

Series 7 of the Great British Bake Off finished up this week and Candice was crowned champion thanks to her great flavours and attention to style and detail.

While it was a bittersweet moment – Great British Bake Off departs the BBC after this year and audiences will say goodbye to Mel, Sue and Mary – there were still plenty of delicious treats served up.

If you felt inspired by Bake Off, why not give some of the recipes a go at home? Today we’ve rounded up a few of the best from Series 7.

Mary’s Victoria Sandwich


While this staple might be named after another monarch, Mary Berry is undoubtedly the queen of cakes. Here’s her simple recipe for a delicious and fool proof Victoria sandwich.

Grandma’s Chocolate Cake


Andrew wowed the judges – and especially Paul – with his Gran’s recipe for a classic chocolate cake with chocolate icing. He’s shared the recipe with the BBC so we can make it at home.

Wild salmon and asparagus quiches


Candice’s delightful wild salmon and asparagus quiches from her showstopper bake helped her win the Great British Bake Off. Who wouldn’t want to give it a go at home?

Pesto and Sun-dried Tomato Palmiers


Jane’s palmiers helped her secure her place in the final on Patisserie Week. She’s shared her recipe for her pesto and sun-dried tomato palmiers, as well as her goats’ cheese, black olive and Parm ham pin-wheel palmiers.

Paul’s Jumble biscuits


Paul’s Jumble biscuits stumped the bakers during the technical challenge in Tudor Week. Luckily for us, he’s shared the full instructions with the recipe so we can try it at home.



Mary didn’t make things easy for the bakers when she asked for a Marjolaine cake during the technical challenge for Dessert Week. Combining nutty meringue, praline buttercream and chocolate ganache, it’s a gluten-free showstopper you can use to impress your family and friends.
