Season 8 / Episode 8 and airs on 17 October 2017 20:00
Over 10 weeks, 12 of the best amateur bakers in Britain will whisk, knead, ice, beat and bake their way through classic British cakes, perfect patisserie, Italian delights, sticky caramel constructions and elaborate layered puddings. All 12 will be hoping to impress with their skill, creativity, knowledge and passion to clinch the Bake Off Crown. Each of the 30 new challenges have been carefully designed by judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith to reveal just who is a star baker. But it's not just a new experience for the bakers. Also joining the tent for the first time are Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding, who will be with the bakers every step of the way, ready with a pertinent pep talk, a helpful hand or just a sympathetic shoulder to cry on.
Twelve bakers take on their first signature challenge -- to make a Madeira cake; the classic black forest gateau.
Eleven bakers face the signature challenge of creating 24 biscotti; the technical challenge is arlettes; edible biscuit box of 36 biscuits of a different flavor.
The bakers create quick breads for the signature challenge; the technical challenge is baguettes; edible 3-D bread sculptures.
The nine bakers left make a French classic -- creme brulee; the technical challenge is a Spanische windtorte; a stack of tiered cheesecakes.
For alternative ingredients week, the bakers must bake without sugar, gluten or dairy; the signature challenge requires sugar free cakes; gluten free pitas; dairy free ice cream rolls.
It's pastry week and the bakers begin with frangipane tarts for the signature challenge; the technical challenge calls for flaouna, a traditional cheese-filled pastry; vol-au-vent.
The signature challenge features a stalwart of the Victorian dinner table -- game pie.
The five remaining bakers work their way through patisserie, including a mountainous choux pastry masterpiece.
The pressure is on as the remaining bakers get a grip on one of the most difficult ingredients -- chocolate.
This program looks back over the last series from Luis's amazing 3-D biscuit scene via the technically challenging Schichttorte to Ian's binning of his baked Alaska.
This week Mary and Paul recreate the bakes from the second half of the series and show us the skills, secrets and tips to ensure perfect results every time.
Mary goes sugar free with her version of a sugar-free carrot cake, before making an apricot frangipane tart. Paul shows us the correct way to make the Cypriot flaounas which left the bakers bewildered in the technical challenge from pastry week. He then makes a game pie with hot water crust pastry followed by a show-stopping lime and passion fruit charlotte russe.
In the final masterclass of the series, Mary and Paul heat up the ovens and get out the mixing bowls one last time to create the signature, technical and showstopper challenges from the last part of the Great British Bake Off.
Mary makes a tennis cake based on the 19th century recipe that was the technical challenge from Victorian week. Paul makes two types of cream horns - the first filled with a mocha crème pat and the rest with a limoncello tutti frutti cream. Mary shows us how to be delicate, precise and perfect with her mokatines and Paul gets to grips with an epic construction in choux pastry - le religieuse a l'ancienne.
Mary and Paul bring Christmas cheer to the table with step by step recipes that all the family can help make.
