Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Saku: "This is jaggery. It belongs to the Palm family we use in Sri Lanka quite a lot."

Voice Over: "But for Saku, jaggery involves an extra risk. It's hard to get out of the mould.

Saku: "I have to empty the moulds while it is still hot. If it goes cold then I"m lost."

Paul Hollywood: "You need a chisel and a hammer to get them out."

Voice Over: "Using jaggery, cardamom and nutmeg. Saku's creme caramels will be mini versions of a popular pudding from her homeland."

Saku: "I'm making a Sri Lankan dessert that my mom made at home. This is one of her favorite. "

Prue Leith: "They're so pretty. They're almost identical. And your jaggary seems to have worked. It's nice and evenly shiny."

Paul Hollywood: "It's very sweet, which I sort of expected. Cardamom comes through beautifully, but the custard itself is too thick."

Prue Leith: "How many eggs did you use?"

Saku: "Eight."

Prue Leith: "Eight whole eggs?"

Saku: "Yes."

Prue Leith: "I think that could be the problem. You've got too much egg white. More yolks than whites is the secret."

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.
