  5. What Austrian cake consists of a dense chocolate sponge with a thin layer of apricot jam on top, coated in dark chocolate icing on the top and sides?

  6. People who suffer from coeliac disease should avoid eating which protein composite?

  7. What would we normally call a 'Norwegian Omelette'?

  8. In the Benny Hill song 'Ernie, the Fastest Milkman in the West', Ernie's rival for the affections of Sue from Liddley Lane (number 22) is 'Two Ton Ted from Teddington who drove the baker's van'. What baking product of Ted's did Sue "nearly swoon at"?

  9. What type of bread is made using a symbiotic culture of yeast and lactic acid bacteria growing in a water and flour medium?

  10. Who won the 2014 series of 'The Great British Bake Off'?
