The Singing Baker

Singing baker Beca Lyne-Pirkis, who has recently appeared as a contestant on BBC2’s The Great British Bake Off, has created an autumn themed cake recipe specially for SSAFA’s Big Brew Up.  Beca, whose husband Matt is a medic in the Army, is also a member of the Aldershot Military Wives Choir.

The cake she has created for SSAFA is named “Beca’s Autumn Bake” and is a Blackberry and Almond Cake with Apple Compote and Vanilla Mascarpone. She says: “I’ve created a cake especially for the Big Brew Up campaign, and it was successfully tested by my friends. I wanted to make something that was easy yet tasty and used seasonal fruit to reflect the fact that we’re definitely in autumn.”
