The Great Australian Bake Off
About the show
Based on the hit UK show, The Great Australian Bake Off sees 12 passionate bakers face a series of tough challenges in the hope of being crowned Australia’s Best Home Baker. Over the 10 week competition, 12 bakers undertake 30 challenges, racing against the clock in the Bake Off Shed under the watchful eyes of judges Maggie Beer and Matt Moran. Each episode ends with Matt and Maggie deciding who will be this week’s star baker and who will be leaving the Bake Off Shed. What better way to kick off the series than with a Bake Off cake off! The bakers have two hours to bake one family sized signature cake, cooking in an unfamiliar kitchen on a tight deadline under the watchful eyes of the judges. Later, in the technical bake, Maggie sets down the challenge – a trio of Constitution cakes. Who will emerge as an early threat, and who will be leaving the Bake Off shed? Comedian’s Claire Hooper and Mel Buttle also feature.
