Peter's Strawberry and Elderflower Savarins
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Voice-Over: "Peter's chosen to keep a clear head." 

Peter: "I'm not soaking in alcohol in here. I've got elderflower cordial, lemon juice, water, and sugar. I don't really drink very much myself, so I thought we'll go for a teetotal savarins."

Voice-Over: "Peter's hoping rectangular savarins will help him out. He's soaking them in an elderflower syrup before finishing with elderflower and strawberry creme diplomats."

Prue Leith: "I think they look very neat and very uniform. It looks like they're quite soaked as well, which is always a good thing." 

Paul Hollywood: "Oh, that cuts right through. Lovely light. Look at that. I didn't think I was going to like a savarin without any booze in it, but it's delicious mouthwashing. Yeah. You've got such a nice texture to that. Very open inside, which is classic savarin."

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.
