Make your own Bake Off-inspired Showstopper

If you’re ready to pull off your own showstopper, we’ve put together a handful of recipes that taste as good as they look.

Strawberry Chiffon Cake (pictured above)

Vibrant, pink and moreish, this strawberry chiffon cake is sure to wow the judges. The whisked sponge cake is made with pureed strawberries and vegetable oil rather than butter, creating a base that’s light yet big on flavour.

Chocolate & Raspberry Tart


This delicious chocolate & raspberry tart is the perfect recipe to impress family and friends – it’s simple to make and richly satisfying in taste. Try the recipe as is or swap out the raspberry for your own substitutions; hazelnut, sea salt and strawberries are just a few other ingredients that pair well with chocolate.
