Dan's Fancy Financiers
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Dan: "So, for my first batch, I am doing pistachio with matcha and pink peppercorn." 

Paul Hollywood: "Matcha.???" 

Dan: "There's only one teaspoon of matcha going in it. I'm adding it because it does lend a little bit of flavour to the pistachio."

Voice-over: "Dan's financiers, delicately flavored with matcha green tea powder, will be decorated with yuzu gel and tonka bean mousse. His second batch will be orange and vanilla financiers topped with macerated peach and fresh raspberries."

Prue Leith: "They do look beautiful. They're very neat. Dan, you were worrying about finesse and they look beautiful." 

Paul Hollywood: "They do look very good. I think we'll have a look at the Japanese inspired one first. This is the tonka bean with the pink peppercorn and pistachio and matcha. That's beautiful. Clever. Yeah. Matcha hits right at the end. Tonka beans there. The choice of fruit I like on there as well. That is delicious. All of it's delicious."

Paul Hollywood: "Let's look at the peach, orange and raspberry. Yeah, that's beautiful. Oh, really nice. It's like a celebration of citrus and it pops and it's beautifully baked. It's got moisture there. That's the perfect financier for me." 

Prue Leith: "Ithink it's a triumph. Well done, Dan."

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.
