Danish week. Basically a great week if your eating the bakes, but not if your baking them. Pastry making for me is not enjoyable it takes forever and I always always seem to burn the end result. I mean what’s that all about?!
As you can probably tell I’m not a fan of making pastry so going into this weeks challenge I told myself that I was going to make the technical but then I didn’t have the pan and the cheaper option was to go for Bryony’s showstopper recipe as I only needed to buy the milk.
So yes, I ended up making pastry. But the recipe I followed from the GBBO app (Bryony’s showstopper) was really easy to follow. Not how I have made pastry before, but it was delicious and easy, forgetting the length of time it took and the fact that I decided to make it after work on a Monday, it was all good.
I swapped the blueberries for cranberries as I had these in the cupboard and didn’t use the ginger syrup, because well it was £2.60 for something I wasn’t going to use again. Yes I went for the cheapest option based on my cupboard stash.
Anyhow, the danish itself tasted good and they went down a treat at work too, which is always a good thing.
Here are some pictures to how I got on, only a few more weeks left of the challenge now. Did you bake this week?
Until next time,
