It's the seventh year of National Baking Week and this year we wanted to stir it up a little. We're encouraging people across the UK not to put up with bland, shop-bought baked products.
We want people to join the revolution and spend more time baking for themselves, their friends and family. There's such a variety of recipes available and we'd like you to try something new and tackle more challenging bakes. This is why this year, we've partnered with someone who's shown that we're all capable of creating some fantastic and novel recipes in our own kitchens. John Whaite was the winner of the 2012 Great British Bake Off and is passionate about baking. To kick things, off he's produced five recipes, exclusive to National Baking Week for you to try. You'll find four of these in our indexed recipe section, and you'll receive the extra one when you sign up to keep up to date with what's happening between October 13th–19th.
So encourage your family and friends to join the revolution and start baking today.
