Do you have the Great British Baking Show fever? The PBS show has swept the country and incited a fascination and love for British recipes. In the show you not only hear the fabulous accents and fun banter between hosts, you are exposed to food completely unfamiliar. Thanks PBS Food, we can share some of these interesting recipes. And, if you haven’t seen The Great British Baking Show, the show airs on WOUB-TV Fridays at 9 p.m. Find additional recipes at this link.

Tea Time Scones

Floating Islands with Spun Sugar

Sugar-Free Carrot Cake
