Matty's Hazelnut and Chocolate Torte
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Matty: "So we're making mousse with a little bit of praline going through it and then a chocolate cremeux and a glaze. Hopefully I'm not doing too much."

Voice-over: "Matty's ambitious chocolate torte will be topped with a chocolate and hazelnut praline mousse and chocolate cremeux, all coated in a chocolate mirror glaze. He's hoping that a crown of carefully tempered chocolate shards will give him the edge."

Prue Leith: "The outside doesn't look so good. A bit wobbly. I think if you take the sides off and look at the top, it looks really nice."

Paul Hollywood: "Let's have a look at it and see what it's like inside. Is this ground almonds in here?"

Matty: "Ground almonds and ground hazelnuts."

Paul Hollywood: "The flavor of the cake and the flavor of the praline mousse work beautifully well together with that chocolate top, it's lovely."

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.
