    how the hell do you like cinnamon, its disgusting and it ruins any flavor. Sorry, just my taste. I can't stand it.

    Video idea: who knows me best-ish. Someone for example Barry is the first person, he picks out the ingredients and makes a dish. However long he takes is the time the others get, they are all presented with Barry's ingredients + a few extra. They all get the allocated time to make what they think Barry will have made with the ingredients. At the end they all see all of the dishes, whoever is closest to what Barry made (taste, appearance etc) wins. It could be a 5 part series with each one of them being the first on an episode.

    Granted baking is very hard to do properly. Maybe try something else, maybe foreign cuisine like Japanese or Brazilian. Idk, giving different options.

    I think what could be fun, is have two people make the same dish from the same recipe, but one of them has experienced what the food is meant to be like (flavour, texture, whatever) and the other one haven't, and has to guess what things are gonna make it work.

    I'd love to see y'all learn about a different cuisine and then do a pass it on using ingredients that cuisine has and recreate a Sorted version of it with a twist.
    Side note: seeing them hug after they both got their rolls was nice considering the normals usually mess with each other 😂

    Well I mean if Spaff wants savoury and we want them to struggle and suffer than how about a grilled cheese (other sandwiches are available) but what I’m getting at is making bread and making cheese or something else that’s complicated maybe make brioche or something yknow

    Potential new video idea: take one of Gordon Ramsay's fast-paces instructional videos and have a normal try to follow the recipe after watching the video once; no pauses or rewinds.

    I have an old recipe book. I can write down some recipe that you can try out. It's pretty interesting to read and... it's in Swedish! So first you have to translate the language and then translate the moments, and, no nice images to look at =)

    I have an incredibility simple cake for you to try & then have them make with just the measured ingredients. It's a Tomato Soup cake.

    1/4 cup butter
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 1/2 cups flour
    1 can Campbell tomato soup (has to be the original & not a no name brand or reduced salt or any kind of other tomato soup)
    1 cup raisins (optional)

    Mix in order of ingredient list
    Scrape into a well buttered & floured pan (preferably round, but if square make sure to pat the mix into the corners because it's very thick)
    Bake at 350F for 25 min
