Prepare Your Kitchen for the Return of the Great British Bake Off

The Great British Bake Off is back but is your kitchen ready for the weeks of pastries, cupcakes, tray bakes and divine, delicious creations? Let TJ Hughes help you prepare your kitchen with affordable bakeware and kitchen essentials.

What challenges do we expect the contestants to face this year?

Last year, contestants were faced with a sticky toffee apple cake challenge, a molten chocolate pudding technical challenge and for the final, bakers were given a signature challenge which required contestants to bake a batch of 12 small loaves, featuring different types of bread and flour.

Along with hand making pasta, choux buns, millionaire shortbread bars, fortune cookies and mini rolls, the challenges can be extremely varied and range from simple and traditional recipes to more extravagant and technically difficult bakes. To give yourself the best chance of replicating this year’s challenges, we recommend first investing in your kitchen tools. As you can see from the show, all contestants have all the tools and equipment required to make each recipe along with a set of scales and plenty of kitchen accessories to make their time on The Great British Bake Off a lot easier. At TJ Hughes, we have plenty of kitchen gadgets, baking equipment and accessories which we’re sure Prue or Mary Berry herself would give a nod of approval to.
