Another week, another Great British Bake Off inspired post. Week 7 saw the bakers tackle pastry, in the form of pastry parcels, the three and a half hour technical challenge to make the unpronounceable Kouign-amann, culminating in the show stopper challenge of eclairs, which I chose to tackle this week.

I like my traybakes seriously pimped up and I’ve done just that with my rocky road brownies. What’s wrong with either rocky road or a brownie? I hear you cry. Well, nothing really. They’re both a delicious chocolatey treat. But when you combine the two, this becomes the powerhouse of sweet treats.
