Jane's Babka and Viennese Biscuits
Time & Location
About the Event
Join the brilliant Jane Beedle (GBBO Finalist, series 7) live from Kent, UK who will guide you through baking her delicious Babka and her Viennese Biscuit recipes. Jane's Babka is made from a rich dough with a delicious chocolate ganache filling, complete with iconic chocolate swirls from plaiting. During the class you will learn the skills to bake and shape this delicious bread, and in the downtime between proving and baking the Babka, Jane will walk you through the popular Viennese Biscuits. These buttery biscuits, delicately piped and dipped in chocolate are absolute perfection.
The class starts at 5pm UK on Sunday 23rd May 2021. We’ll start off the class with an introductory welcome and some background from Jane's time on TV, before we ask you to put on your aprons and bake along as you watch Jane demonstrate all the skills required to make Jane's delicious treats.
