Rebecca from Stevens Point, WI (2017 Week 4: Batter)




Stevens Point, WI

Baking Challenge


Give your batter creation a name – and tell us about your recipe.

Coffee Creme-Filled Churros with Chocolate Espresso Ganache. It took making three different recipes and throwing two batches in the bin before I was able to get a fried churro that wasn’t just dough on the middle.

Now that you’ve survived The Great British Baking Show’s first-ever batter challenge, what words of wisdom can you share?

Ahhhhhh, I wouldn’t have chosen churros if I knew the troubles I would encounter. And to think I shied away from the Lace Pancakes because I thought they would take too much time! I wanted to give up after batch #2, but I was so invested by that time, I couldn’t quit.

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist.

Wisconsin’s very own Colectivo coffee was used to flavor the creme filling. This was the best part of the churro!

How did you do?

It’s not pretty, but it’s edible.
