We want to play along at home, with a carbon-cutting twist. We’re cracking out our best low-carbon bakes, and we’d be simply delighted if you joined in too.

Please send us your photos and recipes for a carbon cutting bake some time before the Bake Off final has been aired (we think that’ll be the last week of October).

What counts as “carbon cutting” food isn’t always easy to pin down. We’ll leave it up to you to decide what approach you’ll take, but here’s some tips:

Alternatively, you could just roll your eyes and refuse to participate because cake is unhealthy and it'll only make us all a burden on the very carbon-hungry NHS. But you can’t really send in pictures of that.

If you’re in, get baking and send us your photos and recipes. We’ll feature our faves on the 10:10 site to share with everyone. There’s no prize for this, just the warm happiness of bake well made and shared.
