Week eight of The Great British Bake Off is Forgotten Bakes week, and our five bakers are stepping back in time to face the test of baking with unfamiliar recipes. Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood set three challenges to test the bakers on three very different bakes. There’s a sweet and savoury signature challenge, and Prue sets a boozy technical. With a place in the Bake Off semi-final at stake, everyone is out to impress. And for their final challenge the bakers must face an elaborate sponge showstopper that once graced the dining tables of high society. Who will make bakes to remember and who would rather forget?
