The Great British Baking Show returns tonight at 9:00 pm with a fourth season on PBS. Twelve new bakers assemble to take on Paul and Mary's challenges, tackling everything from botanical ingredients to Tudor recipes. If the beautiful cakes and pastries have you salivating, try some recipes from previous seasons of the show, courtesy of Mary, Paul, and contestants. 

Mini Victoria Sponges – Try a mini version of Queen Victoria's favorite dessert in a recipe from Mary Berry. 

Tennis Fruit Cake – Mary called this Technical Recipe "one of the most difficult challenges we've given our bakers," but draw on the inspiration of the fearless contestants and you can take it on.Tennis Fruit Cake from The Great British Baking Show. Photo: Love ProductionsPhoto: Love Productions

Raised Game Pie – This recipe of Paul's is for a quintessential British food: the savory meat pie. If game is not your cup of tea, try it with a more traditional meat filling.

Passion Fruit and Lime Charlotte Russe – Mel and Sue thought this classic dessert sounds "a bit like a film star from the 1980s." In fact, it's a custard surrounded by ladyfingers and topped with jelly.Charlotte Russe from The Great British Baking Show. Photo: PBSPhoto: PBS

Toffee Apple Doughnuts – Richard impressed both Mary and Paul with these delectable treats in season 1. Try them yourself.
