A man named Paul Hollywood once said, “Understand bread, understand baking.” And in the second round of The Great British Baking Show, all the contestants were willing and “bagel” to demonstrate their bread making skills.

This week eleven bakers tackled the challenges of flavored flatbread, a complicated plaited loaf and a bevy of bagels in hopes of being named Star Baker or, at the very least, avoiding being sent home by Paul and Mary.

In the quarterfinals of The Great British Baking Show, the five remaining bakers attempted to re-create dishes fit for the Tudors. 

The signature bake was a display of savory stuffed pies; the technical challenge was an unusual Tudor biscuit that had the bakers tied up in knots; and the showstopper was a marzipan centerpiece fit for a very large king. Check out our recap to see who was crowned Star Baker and who was bansihed from the kingdom.
