Win a range cooker for perfect GBBO cakes

Great British Bake Off win a range cooker for perfect baking results

The Great British Bake Off is back on our TV screens and two of my favourite bloggers, Mummy Mishaps and The Crazy Kitchen or Jenny Berry and Helen Hollywood, are setting us a little challenge. Every week, they’ll be hosting the Great Bloggers Bake Off, inviting us to link up recipes that go along with the theme shown the evening before.

I can’t wait to get involved. I know I’m not the best baker in the world, in fact I wouldn’t even get as far as saying that I’m a baker, but I will give it a shot. As the famous Helen Hollywood says: ‘I believe that if you can follow instructions and you have the right equipment, you can bake a cake.’

There are baking tins, scales, electric whisks and hundreds of different gadget that can make the job easier, but something that is just as important as a well-greased baking tin is a good range cooker with an oven that provides an even level of temperature. If you want to get involved and need a new cooker or think that your old oven needs to be replaced, check out the fantastic selection of range cookers from Argos.

You will find something for every budget and if you would rather let fate decide, then why not enter the competition below. You can win a fabulous Flavel FSBG51K Single Gas Cooker in black – worth £309. How amazing is that?

All you have to do is fill in the Rafflecopter below, but make sure to follow the instructions correctly as faulty and and incomplete entrants won’t be counted and entered into the prize draw. Good luck!

  44. My cooker never heats up to temperature properly and it takes twice as long to bake a cake as it should do. I’m sure this must have a detrimental affect on the end result!!! Mind you, the cakes still never last much longer than a day in our house!!!
