The Great British Bake Off is back tonight for a seventh series and I can’t wait for 10 weeks of signature bakes, showstoppers and soggy bottoms!
To celebrate its return and to get in the Bake Off spirit I’ve been doing a spot of baking myself. As first week is cake week I decided to bake this Apricot and Blueberry Crumble Cake, which is ideal for enjoying when you’re watching bake off to curb the inevitable cake envy (any excuse!)
A simple tray bake with fresh fruit, this Apricot and Blueberry Crumble Cake is perfect for summer picnics, an afternoon pick-me-up or served warm with custard for pudding. It might not be as refined as the cakes the 12 new contestants will create tonight but it’s definitely tasty and much easier to make!
If you want to have a go at baking your own Apricot and Blueberry Crumble Cake, you can find the recipe here. Let me know in the comments below if you try it out yourself and what your thoughts are on the first episode of Bake Off after watching it tonight. Happy baking!
