Bake Off return gets tummies rumbling...
So what’s your favourite sweet treat?
Ratings soared as The Great British Bake Off returned to our television screens last week.
The hit show made the switch from BBC to Channel 4 but managed to hold on to its loyal fans after the first episode was watched by an average of 5.8 million viewers.
And to mark the return of the programme we took to the streets of Rutherglen to ask our readers what takes their French fancy when it comes to sweet treats.
Michael Doddley from Burnside said: “My favourite would probably be an angel cake because it’s really light.
“I know my cakes because I used to work as a baker in Glasgow, that was around 55 years ago.
“We baked everything from bread and cakes to biscuits and potato scones.”
Archie Stewart, of Dunbar Avenue, Rutherglen, said: “I’m not a big fan of cakes but I am a sucker for an empire biscuit.
“My late mother in law , Mary McBride, baked them and they were brilliant.
“I always said she could have been bigger than Greggs someday.”
However, not everyone had a sweet tooth as Rutherglen’s Margaret McPhail revealed: “I’ll be honest I don’t really like cakes. It’s a personal choice, I‘d just prefer something savoury like crisps.
“I don’t often watch the Bake Off but I don’t think it’s going to work with the new presenters.”
Thomas Lang from Burnside, added: “I like a fruit cake. It’s healthier than all the other cakes.”
