74 Fantastic Great British Bake Off Cookbooks From Contestants and Judges

I know we’re late to the party, but my husband and I have recently fallen in love with Mary, Paul, Sue, Mel, and all of the contestants on The Great British Bake Off. We’re watching on Netflix where, apparently, the seasons are in no particular order… which makes it even harder to avoid spoilers.

Rioter Christy Childers started a list of Great British Bake Off cookbooks from contestants in 2015 and it’s amazing to see just how many more cookbooks have been published from the GBBO hoards in just three years. Mary Berry is especially prolific.

Here’s a pretty hefty list of Great British Bake Off cookbooks by past contestants and judges. Be it your signature challenge, your technical challenge, or your showstopper… here’s to zero soggy bottoms and no underproving!

What are your favorite Great British Bake Off cookbooks?

Elizabeth Allen: Lifelong book lover, Elizabeth Allen managed to get a degree in something completely unrelated that she never intends to use. She’s a proud Connecticut native who lives in a picturesque small town with her black olive-obsessed toddler daughter, her prom date-turned-husband, and her two dim-witted cats Penny Lane and Gretchen Wieners. She spends her days trying to find a way to be paid to read while drinking copious amounts of coffee, watching episodes of Gilmore girls until the DVDs fail, waiting for her husband to feed her, and being obnoxiously vain about her hair. Elizabeth’s work can be found at www.blackwhitereadbooks.com, where she is currently reading and reviewing all of the books referenced in Gilmore girls. She is also the cohost of two podcasts discussing the work of Amy Sherman-Palladino (“Under the Floorboards” and “Stumbling Ballerinas”). Basically, her entire goal in life is to be a bookish Lorelai Gilmore. She clearly dreams big. Twitter: @BWRBooks
