Jane Loves Spaniels

From the looks of Jane’s Instagram, she had to say goodbye to her pet spaniel, Rosie, in April 2018.

Now she has two super cute cocker spaniel puppies named Minnie and Florence.

And they’re settling in just fine!

Jane’s Kids

The Great British Bake Off finalist has two children.

Her daughter, Amy, is a doctor.

Jane’s son, Henry, is vegetarian and also has a degree.

Henry often features on Jane’s Instagram page helping out in the kitchen and learning some baking tricks.

How Big is Her Family?

As well as her two children, Jane has a husband, Ray, and a brother who lives in Norway.

It looks like baking runs in the family as Jane posted this Insta pic hailing her dad’s Viennese finger recipe that came from her grandad’s bakery!

Jane Hates Waste

One quick glance at the baking extraordinaire’s social media and it’s very clear that she does not waste a thing.

Jane can take 600 ml double cream and make a delicious pot of salted caramel sauce like it’s nobody’s business.

She also manages to transform leftover ingredients into soda bread, soup, omelettes and more.

Jane even makes her own vodka at home!

How Old is Jane?

The Great British Bake Off season 7 runner-up is 63 years old.

She lives in Kent where she has run her own gardening company ‘Mulberry Garden Design’ for the last 17 years.

Not only has Jane mastered the art of baking, but she also spends her days tending to the gardens of Kent and the surrounding areas.
