For the technical challenge in the chocolate week episode of The Great British Bake-Off, Paul challenged contestants to make a chocolate babka loaf.

For the celebration cake portion of my chocolate week bake-along, I made a coconut white chocolate cake filled with lime curd and surrounded by a white chocolate collar.
For chocolate week in my Great British Bake-Off bake along, I started with an raspberry macadamia nut version of my family brownie recipe.
For my GBBO bread week bake-along, I made a soda bread filled with caramelized onions, Gruyere cheese and thyme.
I tinkered with a family recipe for soft rolls and the results were the softest bread rolls I’ve ever had!
For week two of my Great British Bake-Off bake-along, I made almond and hazelnut Florentine Cookies with semi-sweet and caramelized white chocolate on top.

For my signature bake for cake week, I made a Hazelnut-Chocolate Battenberg Cake.
