Taylor Lane Timber Frame’s Battle of the Bakers 2018
With the changing of the clocks and a chill in the air, it’s time for the return of the Taylor Lane Battle of the Bakers! After several years of savoury and sweet pie baking (and far too many victories for MD, Barrie), we decided to shake things up for 2018 and set the challenge of baking either:
Savoury – pasties or sausage rolls
Sweet – eclairs or Belgian buns
The entrants were judged on pastry, flavour combinations and just how bloomin’ good they tasted!
With a winner in each category, we’re thrilled to say that they were both won by newcomers to the competition, Wayne and Molly.
Wayne experimented with the traditional sausage roll filling, combining bacon, mushroom, onion, beans and sweet potato for a surprisingly tasty pastry treat.
Molly heightened the flavour of sweetened dough, sultanas and icing, adding a dollop of lemon curd filling to her Belgian buns. They were amazing!
Well done to both of you.
