Masterclass Episodes

Part 1 | Monday, October 17 at 10pm

Learn from Mary how to make classic Madeira cake and frosted walnut cake. Paul makes hazelnut and orange biscotti and technically tricky arlettes. Mary closes the show with the retro classic Black Forest gateau.


Part 2 | Monday, October 24 at 10pm

Back in the Bake Off tent Mary and Paul roll up their sleeves, baking the challenges that they set the bakers in Bread and Desserts weeks of the Great British Bake Off. Paul is in his element as he shows us how to make soda bread in under an hour and then bakes baguettes, perhaps the most iconic of all French.


Part 3 | Monday, October 31 at 10pm

Mary and Paul recreate the bakes from the second half of the series and show us the skills, secrets and tips to ensure perfect results every time. Mary goes sugar free with her version of a sugar free carrot cake, before making an Apricot Frangipane tart. Paul shows us the correct way to make the Cypriot Flaounas, which left the bakers bewildered in the technical challenge from pastry week. He then makes a Game Pie with hot water crust pastry followed by a show stopping Lime and Passion Fruit Charlotte Russe.


Part 4 | Saturday, December 17 at noon

In the final masterclass of the series, Mary and Paul heat up the ovens and get out the mixing bowls one last time to create the signature, technical and showstopper challenges from the last part of the Great British Bake Off.

Mary makes a Tennis Cake based on the 19th century recipe that was the technical challenge from Victorian week. Paul makes two types of Cream Horns - the first filled with a Mocha crème pat and the rest with a Limoncello Tutti Frutti Cream. Mary shows us how to be delicate, precise and perfect with her Mokatines and Paul gets to grips with an epic construction in choux pastry – le Religieuse a l’Ancienne.


Part 5 | Saturday, December 24 at noon

Watch Mary prepare a pavlova wreath, and Paul a Chelsea bun Christmas tree. Mary makes decadent trifle layered with fruit compote and a rosace à l’orange. Paul puts leftovers to use in turkey and ham pie and closes the show with a towering pandoro.
