‘The Great British Bake Off’ Season 9, Episode 5: “German Week”

“German Week” included a double batch German cookie signature challenge, an obscure Prinzregententorte technical challenge, and a tiered yeasted cake showstopper challenge. We break it all down.


Oh, the Germanity! Amelia and Sasha hold down the fort as Kate galavants across some foreign land by breaking down Episode 5 of Season 9 of The Great British Bake Off. First, Amelia catches us all up on her thoughts about Chigs’s big week (0:30). Then we dive into the delights of “German Week,” which include a double batch German cookie signature challenge (6:00), a classically obscure Prinzregententorte technical challenge (13:45), and a baffling tiered yeasted cake showstopper challenge (21:30). Finally, we discuss this week’s winner and loser and give out our awards for Soggiest Bottom, Best Brit Fit, Most Absurdly British Moment, and more (32:50).
