Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Paul Hollywood: "How much flour are you using in this?"


Paul: "800 grams of flour."


Paul Hollywood: "800 grams. How much liquid?" 


Paul: "300 to 350 ml of buttermilk." 


Paul Hollywood: "Not a lot of liquid. So it's quite a tight structure inside.'


Voice Over: "Paul's close textured quick bread is a break with tradition, as it's sweetened with orange and cranberry." 


Paul Hollywood: "Why did you choose sweet?" 


Paul: "I just like the texture, I like the taste, like the flavours." 


Paul Hollywood: "So how long are you baking this for?" 


Paul: "50 to 55 minutes." 


Paul Hollywood: "Okay. That's quite a long time. Good luck, mate."

Mary Berry: "I can smell the orange. It's coming up and hitting me, which I like in the bread. "


Paul Hollywood: "That's excellent. The orange is great. Your texture is good. The bake's pretty much perfect for a sweet soda bread. Yeah, I'll have another piece of that."

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.
