Steephurst hosts Great Bedales Bake Off

For last weekend’s activity, organised by Jen Moore and David Anson, the Steephurst kitchen was transformed into the popular hubbub of the Great British Bake Off. Though the original planned activity was to visit the Natural History Museum, plans had to change at the last minute due to train disruptions. However, the baking session attracted a number of budding cooks with a selection of both original (some experimental…) and traditional recipes including an improvised meringue, Jaffa inspired cupcakes, homemade sausage rolls and various chocolate related delights. The judges, Clare Jarmy and Lindsey Barnes, awarded several prizes including the ‘showstopper'(pictured left), ‘the classic’ and ‘advanced skills’ and the award ceremony was followed by a substantial afternoon tea … a thoroughly enjoyable Saturday afternoon for days and boarders alike!
