Great British Bake Off semi-final: bake along at home with our recipes


Temperatures are soaring in the Great British Bake Off kitchen as the four remaining contestants face the semi-final - and HELLO! Online have compiled some recipes for you to rival them with at home.

Of the original baker's dozen, just four female bakers remain in with a chance of being crowned Britain's Best Amateur Baker. The hopefuls are tasked with three French bakes on Tuesday night's episode.

The signature challenge will see them make three different types of savoury canapé – from choux to shortcrust to rough puff – in just two-and-a-half hours.



In the technical challenge, bakers will attempt the ambitious Charlotte Royal, a complex dome cake which will test techniques they have learnt throughout the series.

The final challenge sees them put their own spin on the iconic Parisian patisserie, Opera Cake.
