Berry and Almond Danish Pastries | Bake Off Bake Along

The stress is definitely increasing with every bake off bake. It's like it's been gradually building and building, and my time in the weekends has also been massively running out. 

These little (or not so little) Danishes were made on a Sunday morning nipping down to the beach with the fam. They reminded me why I don't like pastry essentially. Well, I love eating pastry. I just don't enjoy making them.

I should definitely make more of an effort to make myself love it, I think. Because there's nothing better than biting into a crunchy, but soft pastry. However, I was a bit disappointed in these little ones.

They exterior crunch was all there and the flavour was mostly there, although I would've preferred them a bit sweeter or flavourful. But, I did it and I tried it, and it's made me realise I need to work on pastry. I think my downfall with these danishes was the proving, in that they didn't double in size, they grew a little bit in about an hour, but that was it. 

What I did love was having a pastry for breakfast on Monday morning at work. That definitely was the little pick me up that I needed.

I followed Briony's recipe for her danish pastries. I am so sad to see her go this week on patisserie week, definitely don't think it was her turn to go and was rooting for her to make the final. 

It's final week next week and I'm looking forward to it. It also means there are just two more bakes left of #bakeoffbakealong. Part of me will miss the trying something new each week... but another part of me will appreciate the less pressure on each bake.
