Dan's Chilli  and Chocolate Torte
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Dan: "So I'm going for a Mexican chocolate torte this week. I'm putting a Mexican liqueur in there, which is a guanabana fruit."

Voice-over: "Dan's boozy Mexican chocolate torte will combine hazelnuts, dark chocolate, and guanabana liqueur, topped with fresh fruit and chili chocolate truffles. He's hoping to tickle the judges taste buds."

Prue Leith: "Well, I must say, I think it looks very neat and quite original."

Paul Hollywood: "A little bit more height would have been nicer. Is this chilli going to blow my head off, Dan?"

Dan: "Hopefully not."

Prue Leith: "I don't mind the chilli."

Paul Hollywood: "I think the texture is too gluey. It reminds me a little bit of Mexico, but I think it's a little bit overwhelming on the alcohol."

About The Great British Baking Show ™

The Great British Bake Off ™ (often abbreviated to Bake Off or GBBO and referred to in the United States as The Great British Baking Show ™) is a streamed British baking competition, in which a group of amateur bakers compete against each other in a series of rounds, hoping to impress the judges with their baking skills. One contestant in The Great British Baking Show ™ is eliminated in each round, and the winner is selected from the three contestants who reach the final.

The Great British Baking Show ™ operates on a weekly elimination process to find the best all-around baker from the contestants, who are all amateurs. In each episode, the bakers are given three challenges based on that week's theme: a signature bake, a technical challenge, and a show-stopper. The bakes are assessed by the judges who then choose a "Star Baker" for the week, and a contestant is also eliminated. In the final round, three bakers are left and a winner is chosen from the three.
