6 Chocolate Tea Cakes
Give your biscuits a name and tell us about your recipe.
Hootenanny Tea Cakes. I used Paul Hollywood's recipe.
Would you describe yourself as a rogue baker, or do you strictly adhere to the recipe?
When baking something for the first time, I usually adhere to the recipe. This recipe called for golden syrup, so I made that from scratch (which I hadn't done before!) using sugar, water, and a lemon slice. My only deviation from the official recipe was the choice of molds.
Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist to your creation.
Instead of domes, I used owl molds as a nod to Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay. They care for thousands of orphaned and injured animals each year, including owls and other birds of prey.
How did you do?
