    I've never had a Yorkshire pudding in my life. My OH thinks I'm weird. :p

    You're missing out. They're the best part of a roast dinner.

    +100!!

    But very rare to get a really good one - mostly they're stodgy, flavourless doughy affairs.

    Absolute NIGHTMARE in a competitive scenario!!

    Poor Tom.... and Candice (although the mean part of me is grinning)

    Paul fancies the knickers off Candice and doesn't even try to hide it.

    Lace pancakes is just perverse :eek:

    This is going to be very interesting!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,457 ✭✭✭livedadream


    I prefer the ones where it's lace but filled in... Like a normal pancake but with a design... Same effect and you can stuff all the yummys in it

    Jane to be star baker this week? Good comments on her puddings & churros!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,457 ✭✭✭livedadream


    Am I the only one that hoped selasi responded to Mary and Paul's complaint that they were to dark by laughing and saying
    Sometimes darker is better


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,576 ✭✭✭Keane2baMused


    Well deserved star baker!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,795 ✭✭✭Red Kev


    Mary: "They're a bit thin"
    Paul: " They're the right thickness "

    Jesus lads, make yere minds up.

    I'm watching online - there appears to be a few minutes delay


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,174 ✭✭✭RhubarbCrumble


    Woo hoo. Won't name as spoiler, but delighted to see x go home tonight. Irritated me from the start and I had this horrible vision of them ending up in the final!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,666 ✭✭✭Howjoe1


    Wrong person gone.




  • Just watching now. I've a lump in my throat. Mel, Sue, Mary and Paul together make Bake Off.

    Agreed, delighted to see them go as they were a complete pain in the arse. Now if we can get rid of
    __Val__
    next week I'd be even happier.

    Ah I'm sorry to see that person go - not my favourite character but thought they had more to give, room to grow etc.
    Delighted for star baker, liked from week one.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 640 ✭✭✭Turtle_


    I think Paul summed it up well, definitely not the weakest Baker, but had the worst week.

    I'm fed up with
    val
    . Hope next week will see their departure.

    Aww man, i think
    Val
    is great, she is the lovable granny character for me.

    She has got on my nerves previous weeks, but this week she was far more.. subdued.

    I think judging them in isolation on the week in question doesn't make sense. If someone has been circling the drain all along and then all of a sudden has an ok week, they're safe. If someone has had nothing but good weeks and then has one shocking week, they're gone. Kate was one of the better bakers and shouldn't have gone IMO.

    Feck's sake :mad:

    The first year I get into the show turns out to be its last - that's just typical

    It's ok, all the back series are on Youtube!

    I imagine Sue and Mel are contracted to the BBC and not the show. So have no obligation to stay.

    But reading the BBC article about them leaving now, they said that they wouldn't stick with the show if it moved channel. Kudos to them so for sticking to their guns.

    They don't exclusively work for the BBC, they've done stuff on ITV recently too, so this does seems to be solely on principle. Fair play.

    We never filled our yorkshire puddings, just had them plain on the side with the beef.

    Are they usually filled?

    Never had filled yorkshires either but used to fill them with gravy as a kid (I may still do this, don't judge me!)
