‘The Great British Bake Off’ Season 9, Episode 1: “Cake Week”

Welcome to the tent, bakers! Every Friday, Amelia and Kate are recapping the latest episode of ‘The Great British Bake Off.’ First up: “Cake Week,” and why we love this show so much.

ABC’s “The Great American Baking Show: Holiday Edition”

Welcome to the tent, bakers! The Ringer’s Kate Halliwell and Amelia Wedemeyer will be here on The Ringer Reality TV Podcast every Friday to recap the new season of The Great British Bake Off. In this episode, covering “Cake Week,” we first talk about how we got into the show and why we love it so much (0:30). Then we get to the nitty-gritty, digging into a dastardly signature challenge, in which the bakers had to make mini Swiss rolls (14:25), a confusing technical challenge based on Prue’s recipe for malt loaf (20:00), and a gravity-defying showstopper challenge (23:05). Finally, we hand out our awards for the soggiest bottom, the most absurdly British moment, the best Brit fit, and much more (32:55).
