Returning: The Great Australian Bake Off

It's been a long wait but 12 new bakers don aprons from late January.

It’s been a long wait but 12 new bakers will compete in the new season of The Great Australian Bake Off in late January.

Judges Maggie Beer & Matt Moran are joined by Claire Hooper and Mel Buttle as delicious desserts, cakes, biscuits, breads, and pastries, are served up in a bid to find Australia’s best baker.

Over 10 weeks, all bakers will take on 30 delicious challenges to test their baking prowess, creativity, and skill. The twelve bakers are a group of home baking enthusiasts from a 19-year-old disability worker to our 62-year-old grandmother who has lost her sense of taste and smell. The bakers range from diverse backgrounds including Zimbabwe, Laos, Afghanistan, Indonesia, and Torres Strait Islands with occupations ranging from a lawyer, Drama and English high school teacher, a Doctor, Physiology lecturer to a female retired navy vet who specialized in electronic weapons.

Produced by BBC Studios Australia and New Zealand for the first time since they opened their Sydney production arm in 2018, The Great Australian Bake Off retains the wonderfully warm spirit of camaraderie, savvy take-home baking tips and heartfelt humour. The Great Australian Bake Off is a BBC Studios production in Australia for Foxtel based on a format created by Love Productions and licensed by BBC Studios distribution.

Thursdays at 8.30pm from January 27 on LifeStyle.

  1. Great and thank god seven didn’t get there hands on it the good thing about the bake-off on Foxtel is that it’s only 1 hour once a week unlike say the regular season of MasterChef which is 5 nights a week
