European Cakes

Past halfway in their baking marathon and the remaining six bakers face three European cakes.

For their signature challenge the bakers are asked to bake yeast-leavened cakes, a tricky cross between cake and bread that sees some of the bakers opting out of Europe...

Mary sets the bakers their most demanding technical challenge yet in which they must make a Swedish princess torte. With 24 different stages and only two-and-a-quarter hours to do it in, the bakers have their work cut out for them, while Sue explores the events that led to the huge array of Danish cakes and pastries in the Danish cake table tradition.

And finally, a show-stopping finale that puts the hungry into Hungary... The bakers must make their own contemporary version of the dobos torte. Traditionally a multi-layered Hungarian cake, the bakers must go one step further and make a two-tiered dobos torte with an emphasis on all things caramel in every way they can imagine... but whose Bake Off will come to a sweet but sticky end?

On your marks, get set... bake!
