Peter's Gluten Free Chocolate and Orange Battenberg
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Peter's gluten free dark chocolate and orange sponges was wrapped in a polka dot marzipan. 

Peter: "John Whaite (winner of series three of The Great British Baking Show ™) said that his mum taught him to "listen" to it. If it's still wet, then it's going to sound like it's boiling away. But if it's just a nice, moist cake, it's just got a gentle sound to it. So that was a good tip from The Great British Bake Off ™. "


Prue Leith: "Nice, thin marzipan. The chocolate's got a lovely flavour to it. Decadent. And actually it's the same with the orange. Gluten free flour for sponges, really does work. That's a great battenberg. "

Paul Hollywood: "I love the polka dots, love the texture of the chocolate one. It's both crumbly and moist, which is quite difficult to make happen. "

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.
