The Great British Bake Off is something I will religiously watch when on and it has proved to be a huge hit ratings wise. During the past week they had The Great Comic Relief Bake Off. Some of the celebrities had never baked before and one of the challenges was a lemon meringue pie. I thought to myself, if they can do it, why not me? So here we go, my first attempt.
The pastry was easy but the curd was a different matter. No matter how vigorously I stirred it, following the recipe here it would just not ‘plop from the spoon’ for me. I had followed the instructions carefully and all measurements where exact (the OCD helps in this :)). The proof will be in the cutting which as I type this will be in approx 30 minutes. Can’t wait.
You may be wondering why I have a photo of biscuits and coffee above. Well let me answer that for you. Those biscuits are shortbread which I also made for the first time during the week. I left them in the oven for a bit too long but they are still incredibly buttery and lovely with tea or coffee. They are so easy to make so you have no excuse for not giving it a go.
