Josh's Raspberry and Chocolate Torte
Josh's Raspberry and Chocolate Torte
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Voice Over: "Josh's pecan based torte will layer chocolate cremeux, raspberry, chantilly cream, and fresh raspberries from his garden, surrounded by delicately piped chocolate leaves."

Prue Leith: "Chocolate and pecans and raspberry. They are a very classic combination. I've not seen ground pecans used in the sponge before."

Paul Hollywood: "I like the colour, I like the shine. The sides, however, are not particularly good."

(Cake is cut.) Paul Hollywood: "Oh, dear."

Prue Leith: "This is definitely dessert rather than cake. It is absolutely delicious. The tartness of the raspberries come through. You really get the chocolate."

Paul Hollywood: "I mean, it tastes amazing, but it's almost a pudding, isn't it?"

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.
