When he’s not courteously helping Mary Berry to lift heavy bowls of Christmas pudding mix during this festive baking session, Paul Hollywood behaves like a naughty boy, cheeking his indulgent Auntie Mary or pestering her to lick the spoon.
Mary sails through it all serenely, of course. They’re a marvellous double act, listening attentively to each other’s step-by-step guide to their recipe and then exclaiming with delight at what eventually comes out of the oven. Much of this is traditional fare (a yule log, mince pies, Christmas cake), although they finish with an unconventional treat that Paul likes to serve on Boxing Day: a Chelsea bun containing leftover turkey and stuffing with cranberry sauce.
A word of warning to Hollywomen, though: try to stay calm as Paul, kneading a lump of dough, explains why he likes to use his hands. It’s something about wanting to remember how things feel.
Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood demonstrates recipes to bake for the family this Christmas, inspired by rich traditions from all over Europe. Paul kicks off the baking with St Lucia buns traditionally eaten throughout Advent in Scandinavia, and puts a twist on the traditional mince pie by making a mincemeat and marzipan couronne. Mary offers alternatives to Christmas cake and pudding by creating a fruit-filled Genoa cake and a white chocolate and stem ginger cheesecake. Paul finishes proceedings off with a showstopping Kransekake, which is a spectacular Scandinavian tower of rings.
