Great British Bake Off Week 1 - Wagon Wheel


Who watched the first episode of the Great British Bake Off?! I get so excited when it comes on and I said to myself that this year I would try and make at least one recipe a week that they do. S0 of course for those who watched it know they made Wagon Wheels and I really wanted to give it a go.

I was inspired further by Livia's Kitchen with her gigantic Wagon Wheel which just looked amazing but I've still tweaked it a bit with my own version. Have a go and see what you think! Please tag me @bakelikeavegan_ on Instagram with any recipes you make I would love to see them :)

Method

✿Start by making your Base layer. Make your oat flour by putting oats in the food processor. Then add the coconut flour to blend together. 
✿Add flour to rest of Base ingredients and divide in half. Transfer one half to a lined cake tin (18cm) and press down until you have even surface.
✿Make your Creamy layer - add all ingredients into food processor to blend together. Spread over Base and put in freezer for 30/40 minutes.
✿Spread your Raspberry Jam on the creamy layer evenly and put back into the freezer for 30 minutes or until frozen.
✿Spread the remainder of base layer on top of the jam and put back in the freezer so everything firms up.
✿Make the chocolate layer - in a ban-marie, melt together all of the ingredients, stirring together till combined then remove from the heat. 
✿Place the wagon wheel on a rack or plate and pour over the dark chocolate - use a palette knife spreading the chocolate evenly around till covered. 
✿Eat whilst its fresh or keep in freezer for up to a week in an airtight container. Enjoy!
