GBBO winner devises recipes for prune body

The Great British Bake Off winner Frances Quinn has been signed up by California Prunes to create two prune-based recipes. 

The BBC TV winner’s first recipe, California Prune Panda Scones, includes three prunes, which count as one of the recommended five-a-day portions of fruit and vegetables.

Quinn said she was impressed with the versatility of Californian prunes: “California prunes are naturally very sweet, which means you can substitute prunes for sugar in baking or mix both together for a healthier recipe.”

She has produced a step-by-step guide to making the scones, which can be viewed on California Prune’s YouTube channel:

Quinn will also demonstrate the California Prune Panda Scone at The Bakery Theatre of the UK’s popular Cake and Bake Show in Manchester from 4-6 April 2014.

Quinn is now working on a second recipe for California Prunes, “which promises to be yet another sensational and successful addition to the California prune repertoire”, according to the California Prune Board.
