The Great Canadian Baking Show

CBC Television 2017

THE GREAT CANADIAN BAKING SHOW (8x60) is the new homegrown version of hit baking competition The Great British Bake Off. Based on the British format, the series will bring together 10 amateur bakers from across Canada to compete in a series of themed culinary challenges. In each episode, they’ll face three nail-biting rounds: the Signature Bake, the Technical Bake and the Show Stopper. Each week, the competitor who shows the most skill, creativity and finesse will be named Star Baker, while the weakest will be sent home until only three finalists are left vying for the Great Canadian Baking Show title.(Source CBC)

The judges will be looking for twelve identical looking fancies, with an emphasis on fancy for the decoration.For the showstopper, the bakers have three hours to make a pavlova, which needs to have the balance between the light meringue with the crispy exterior and soft interior, contrasting with the unctuousness of the whipped cream and the slightly tart topping comprised usually of fruit.

The cake must be light enough to be able to roll which means not overbaked, the spiral should be tight and there should be an appropriate ratio of cake to filling. For the technical challenge, the bakers have one and three quarter hours to make thirty-two rugelach, sixteen chocolate and sixteen apricot. The cookie portion should be tender and flaky but baked through, and the filling should not be spilling out of the cookie. For the showstopper, the bakers have four and a half hours to create a gingerbread structure. The design may be paramount in this challenge, but they must still produce a tasty gingerbread cookie.

#16 - Canada Week
7.74
Season 1 - Episode 4

The bakers should feel right at home as it's Canada week. For the signature challenge, the bakers will have two hours to make the classic Québécois savory pie, the tourtiere. They will need to have enough fat in the filling to make it rich to the taste and for it to hold together and not crumble. For the technical challenge, the judges are asking for sixteen maple leaf cookies from each baker to be made in one and three-quarter hours. The cookies must be consistent, the shortbread dough rolled out evenly, and have the right ratio of cookie to maple cream filling. The other challenge the bakers face is dealing with an ingredient most have never seen or heard of, namely maple butter, the amount used which could make or break their cream filling. And for the showstopper, the bakers must make six each of two different types of doughnuts in three hours. For yeast doughnuts, the judges will be looking for the signature white line encircling the doughnuts where the dough has not touched the hot oil. Filled doughnuts should have a good ratio of filling to dough. The bakers must also be wary of the oil temperature: too hot and the doughnuts will burn or be too dark without the dough being cooked through, too cold and the doughnuts will absorb too much oil and become a greasy mess.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
