Great British Bake Off: Doughnuts And Enriched Dough Recipes

24/11/2017 22:28 GMT


It's enriched dough week on The Great British Bake Off, which means the remaining bakers are tackling fancy pants bread bakes.

The five quarter finalists are tasked with making:

Enriched sweet fruit loaves for their signature challenge.

An Eastern European cross between a bread and a pastry filled with swirls of cinnamon and walnuts.

A show-stopping selection of doughnuts.

'Enriched' dough is made with butter, sugar, eggs and/or oil. It requires a bit more work than regular bread dough, and takes longer to rise, but is well worth the extra effort - think sweet buns, cinnamon swirls and danishes.


Fancy giving it a go? We've rounded up some easy video recipes to follow for enriched dough and delicious doughnuts.

Happy baking!
