Baking The Bake Off! Week 4: Salted Caramel Chocolate Fondants

Last Wednesday was the most explosive episode of The Great British Bake off that has ever aired! Dessert week was dished up with lashings of drama, tantrums, and outrage! Iain, Iain, Iain! What were you thinking?! I'm gutted for him because his feedback had been so positive up until the 'bin-cident'. It's sad that Diana was seemingly framed by the producers/editors of the show, because apparently Iain's ice cream was only taken out of the freezer for 40 seconds. The early departure of Diana from Bake Off, due to illness, is such a shame. Hopefully calm will be restored during pies & tarts week in the next episode.

As usual, I had to post my favourite innuendo of the episode. This gem comes from the lovely Sue:

Dessert week saw the contestants display a variety of different skill sets in their bakes. The Signature Bake was all about the 'self-saucing' puddings. Some bakers went for the classic fondant method, whereas others when for the chilled centre technique; and then there was Luis, with his poached pear liquor! The Technical Challenge saw the bakers tackle Mary Berry's Tiramisu Cake, with varying degrees of success! Lastly was the Show Stopper Challenge; Baked Alaska. My favourite flavour combination was definitely Martha's key lime pie baked alaska. Her bake was an inspired fusion dessert!

For this week's bake I was inspired by Kate's chocolate and salted caramel molten puddings. I didn't follow her actual recipe, which you can find on the BBC website, instead I found a recipe on a gorgeous blog called Elspeth's Seasonal Kitchen. The recipe is originally from Rachel Khoo's 'The Little Paris Kitchen' TV series.

I'm very proud of my fondants. They were all self saucing and super delicious! I know I said it last week, but this was my best bake so far. Yum! Yum!

What are your views on the 'bin-cident'? Are you still hankering for #justiceforIain? Or just hungering for a salted caramel chocolate fondant? Leave me your thoughts and comments below!
