Great British Bake Off crowned its winner this week, and we’re looking to honour the borough’s baking heroes.
The baking phenomenon has swept the nation over the past few years, with our love for creating cakes, pastries and breads inspired by television programmes and cookery books.
Now we want amateur bakers across the borough to send us their recipes for baking creations, which we will share with our readers.
We’ve extended the date you can submit recipes to us by, to give you more time to perfect your sweet and savoury treats.
Perhaps you make a delicious cake or pie that gets compliments whenever you bake it.
Or maybe you can craft amazing naan, perfect scones or scrummy apple turnovers.
Whatever it is, we want you to send us your recipe, and we’ll share it with thousands of readers. Your recipes could be published on our website, and they could also feature in our paper.
And to make the prospect even sweeter, we’ve got four £50 High Street vouchers to give away, which you can spend on getting equipment to help with your baking.
The winners of the vouchers will be picked through a random draw.
But remember, all your recipes must be original creations, whether they are something that has been handed down to you by a member of your family, or your own twist on a classic dish.
Please include a list of ingredients, method, preparation time, cooking time and a photo of the finished product, together with your name, address and phone number.
The closing date for recipe submissions is November 18.
Send them to Sharon Tiller, Reader Bakes, Media House, 539 High Road, Ilford, IG1 1UD. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or submit your recipe online by going to the Reader Bakes section of our website.
