Bid farewell to the bake off blues with California walnuts

We don’t know about you, but as we bid farewell to another series of The Great British Bake Off, we’ve got a serious case of the bake off blues. Fear not as we’ve teamed up with Season One’s winner Edd Kimber (also known as The Boy Who Bakes) to give you inspiration for your next signature bake with these five delicious California walnut showstoppers.

California Walnut and Espresso Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches

This twist on a classic is too tempting to pass. The combination of creamy California walnut cookies sandwiching a luscious chocolate coffee ganache is a match made in heaven. These tasty cookies are seriously moreish – you have been warned.

Say hello to your new go-to cake recipe. This easy-to-make bake balances a sweet topping with a zesty sponge. Perfect as a treat for any excuse to celebrate, you can guarantee yourself a ‘Hollywood handshake’ with this California inspired cake. It’s almost too pretty to eat… we said almost.

California Walnut and Pear Plant-Based Crumble

Although the weather is getting colder and the days are getting shorter, we always try to look on the bright side – it’s officially crumble season. Luckily for us, this warming crumble is a celebration of all things autumn, with a spiced pear filling covered in a crunchy California walnut and oaty topping – the ultimate signature.

California Walnut Sticky Buns

If you want the ultimate sticky dessert, then this recipe is for you. A crisp California walnut top with a delicious cinnamon and orange sponge makes these zesty buns perfect when paired with a hot cup of tea, and some good friends to share them with.

Baking bread without the kneading? Yes please. This no knead focaccia is not only super simple, but bursting with delicious flavours. It’s an easy way to fool everyone into thinking you’ve spent hours in the kitchen, combining creamy California walnuts with sweet black grapes. The bread king himself would whip this one up for an elevenses snack.

Now on your marks… get set… bake!
