The Great South African Bake Off

IT'S BAKE OR BREAK TIME

Show Synopsis

It’s the moment every cake, bread and pie lover has been waiting for.

Bake Off is back and this time, the search goes nationwide in a bid to find and crown South Africa’s best amateur baker.

Each week the bakers will be given a new technique to master that will stretch their baking skills as they race against the clock, and each other, to deliver a show-stopping, mouth-watering creation. However, after nine weeks of whisking and piping, only one can emerge victorious.
