The Great British Bake Off: Danish Week  Season 9, Ep 8

Velkommen! In the Tent's first Danish Week (a theme apparently suggested by host Sandi Toksvig) the five semi-finalist bakers kick things off by making rye bread in the Signature, which is then used to produce two Smørrebrød. For the Technical, bakers were asked to produce fourteen Æbleskiver. Lastly, in the Showstopper, the challenge was to create the traditional Danish birthday treat, Kagemand.
