Bake Off viewers aghast at Prue’s sticky toffee pudding challenge

Bake Off fans were aghast as Prue set the bakers the task of making a very unusual sticky toffee pudding.

Dessert week on the Channel 4 show saw the contestants struggling with a complicated recipe to make four individual sticky toffee puddings.

The tricky technical challenge required crème anglaise and a tuile biscuit – and viewers said it was unlike any sticky toffee pudding they had eaten or made before.

David Knowles said on Twitter: “Sticky toffee pudding does not need a tuile and goes with custard not ‘crème anglaise'”

Jenni Osborn said: “What’s with the sticky toffee pudding challenge…and the tuile? I’ve never had biscuit with sticky toffee pudding before..”

Dr Liz Munday wrote: “A tuille full of seeds with sticky toffee pudding are you MAD Prue?!”

Rebekah May said: “What is this @BritishBakeOff? I’ve never had sticky toffee pudding like that! I get the pudding and the toffee sauce and stop.”

Gemma H wrote: “Why oh why would you want tuiles with a sticky toffee pudding?!?!?”

Colm said: “What the hell is the point of the tuile on a sticky toffee pudding? That’s just daft.”

And Alex Buckley said: “Who the hell has tuille with sticky toffee pudding?”

Maggie had a torrid time in the tent after forgetting to add flour to her recipe.

Prue said of her finished puddings : “Funnily enough, those tuiles look really good.”

Paul added: “It looks like caramelised onion chutney, burnt to a cinder.”

She became the fourth baker to leave the tent, while the technical challenge left police detective Amanda vowing never to make sticky toffee pudding again.
