Episode 2 of 6

Duration: 30 minutes

Chef, baker and patissier Lorraine Pascale shares her secrets, passion and knowledge on baking sweet and savoury recipes. Featuring old favourites as well as new twists on modern classics as well as tips on helpful shortcuts, techniques and kitchen secrets for baking.

Lorraine is back in the kitchen and this time it's all about speed baking. First up are two super-fast canapes, totally lazy mini sausage rolls and sun-dried tomato and rosemary palmiers. Both are made with shop-bought puff pastry with absolutely no guilt.

Lorraine confesses to a life-long love affair with brownies and whips up a quick-time version, cookies and cream fudge brownies, and she shares her secrets for a tray of flapjacks in a flash.

Then it's off to Paris for inspiration because even French-style patisserie can be made fast. Skinny tarts are glamorous, easy on the waistline and easy on the clock. Even bread gets the speed treatment with Lorraine's no-knead take on a wartime recipe, the Doris Grant Loaf. It is delicious with camembert and roasted garlic, the fastest, most incredible supper. When it's speed you need, baking is definitely the way to go.
