What can be better than Tuesday evenings watching The Great British Bake off? Well maybe the Great British Bake Off App- bang on brand with beautiful garden backgrounds and 50 simply scrummy recipes. Hungry anyone?
The app has a simple, easy to navigate layout with recipes organised into cakes, biscuits, bread, pastry and puddings- featuring a selection of recipes from Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood or the bakers themselves. You can navigate by category or by search depending on baker, ocassion, ingredient and level of difficulty. Each recipe has a simple description and detailed step by step instructions, with a guide to the level of difficulty. And the app has a hands free mode for when you are in the thick of it!
Best of all to my mind, the recipes are an unusual collection of mouthwatering treats such as Golden Apricot and Marzipan Loaf, Monkey Bread, Rum and Raisin baked cheesecake. Yum. Just get stuck in!
We thought that the number of easily accessible recipes made this good value for money as the quality of the recipes is probably a lot higher than you would get just by searching the internet.
Compatible with: iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch
We also took a look at the new book from the GBBO team - How To Turn Everyday Bakes into Showstoppers - this is a really nicely illustrated book with quite simple to follow instructions and I really liked the way that it took you through the steps from baking something quite simple (but delicious) to baking something that looks truly special and would mark you out as a baking afficianado.
