Will we now see Barry on BBC’s Great British Bake Off

Barry has become completely converted to thermal cooking since the Newbury Motorhome Show earlier this year. At the show he bought a Mr Ds Thermal Cooker and after using it for the first time he was completely hooked.

We caught up with Barry and Betty in Malvern last weekend at the Western Motorhome Show and he was anxious to buy a cake tin. His first attempt was a Wrights cake mix which sunk a little in the middle but he told me it still tasted deliciuos. This I explained to him was  probably due to not long enough simmering so off he went to have another try.

Yesterday I received this email which shows that Barry has by the longer simmering he has now produced a perfect Wrights carrot cake and without an oven.

I wander if we will see him on BBC’s Great British Bake Off sometime showing Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood a new way to cook cakes in a Mr D’s Thermal Cooker.

Hi Dave
I have been in contact with Debbie at Wrights & she said you might be interested in the photos
The cake mixture was mixed with an electric whisk, the cake tin was greased all round with greaseproof paper top & bottom
It was placed in the pan using your trivet in hot water, I found 3½ pints to be just the right amount, I then brought it to the boil
& simmered  for 40 mins, put in the thermal cooker & left it overnight. The result was excellent, a moist cake fully risen.
sorry about the missing piece I couldn’t resist
