Stacey's Camembert Bedfordshire Clanger
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Stacey: "I'm going for Camembert, rocket, pine nuts and caramelized onions. It's kind of a posh take on the cheese and pickle."

Voice-Over: "Stacey's the only baker using a wet filling in her clangers. Her cinnamon custard will surround the fresh blueberries and apple of her sweet."

Judge: "How are you containing that little river of custard?"

Stacey: "Well, this particular custard is quite thick when it's inside." 

Prue Leith: "There's been a little blueberry explosion, so we know which end is sweet."

Paul Hollywood: "I think you've got a great texture there. The pastry is nice and flaky. It's a little bit soft, as I'd expect from a suet crust."

Paul Hollywood: "That's lovely, the pastry's flaky, it's light, it's got lots of flavour, it's got a nice crisp on the outside and it's baked all the way through. The caramelized onions are the heroes in there. Beautiful flavors."

Prue Leith: "I'm amazed that you got such good texture, because the blueberries were raw and I rather expected them to sog up the bottom of the pastry, but they haven't."

Paul Hollywood: "That is absolutely delicious."

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.
