Bake With A Legend Online Classes are an interactive experience, where we limit group sizes to around 20 to ensure an intimate online setting. Not only do you have your celebrity baker teaching you, but you also have one of our brilliant Bake With A Legend hosts who will ensure the smooth running of your experience ensuring everyone is enjoying themselves.
If you need any help at any point during the class, you’ll be encouraged to raise your hand and your baker will be virtually joining you in your own kitchen in no time to assist you!
You’ll bake along in tandem with Ian, learning many tips and tricks a long the way as you perfect all the skills required to make Ian's delicious take on the beautiful Charlotte Royal. Ian will also be on hand to answer your questions, be those about baking or his experiences of being involved on such an iconic television show.

Whisk or Stand Mixer with Whisk Attachment
Mixing Bowl for Assembly (4inches high, 8 inches wide)
Small and Medium Saucepans
*Ian uses a 9x13inch and a 9x11inch, and a 7-inch round tin – this is because Ian is filling a bowl that is 8inches wide, so you should have a round baking tray that the diameter is 1inch smaller than the diameter of the bowl.
For the Swiss Roll:
5 Large Eggs*
160g (4/5 Cups) Caster / Superfine Sugar
A Pinch of Salt
160g (1 ¼ Cups) Plain / All-Purpose Flour
Cake Release Spray or Vegetable Oil
For the Raspberry Jam:
300g (approx. 2 Cup) Raspberries
200g (1 Cup) Caster / Superfine Sugar
3tsp Lemon Juice
For the Bavarois Cream:
6 Sheets of Gelatine/2tbsp Powdered Gelatine**
10 Large Egg Yolks
Pinch of Salt
270g (1 1/3 Cups) Caster / Superfine Sugar
300ml (1 ¼ Cups) Milk
2 x 250ml (2 Cups total) Double / Heavy Cream
For the Raspberry Bavarois:
150g (approx. 1 Cup) Raspberries
50g (1/4 Cup) Caster / Superfine Sugar
1tsp Lemon Juice
1 Sheet Gelatine or ½ tsp Powdered Gelatine
75g (approx. ½ Cup) Chilled Raspberries
For the Lemon Bavarois:
60ml Lemon Juice (approx. 2 Lemons)

*Large Egg in UK = Extra Large Egg in US
**Ian strongly recommends trying to get hold of sheet gelatine as it takes the guesswork out of how big a tablespoon is. Here in the UK a normal sheet is 7 x 11.5 cm (2.75 x 4.5 inches).
***Ian uses lemon oil made by a US company called Boyajian. It isn’t the cheapest ingredient but it goes a long way and is absolutely delicious and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
