It's the eighth year of National Baking Week and there's no better time to set yourself a baking challenge and spend some Homemade Family Time with 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. Cathryn Dresser was a contestant in the 2012 Great British Bake Off and is passionate about baking. To kick things off, she's produced five recipes, exclusive to National Baking Week for you to try. You'll find 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.
