“Slack” is one of the most glorious words in the English language. It can mean physically loose, like a badly anchored tent rope. It can be made plural for “slacks”, those most evocatively provincial of garments.

Now – thanks to judge Paul Hollywood on BBC Two’s The Great British Bake Off – it also applies, in a new and unique way, to custard. Tonight’s challenges, all on the broad topic of “desserts”, required two different kinds of custard. There was the lighter crème anglaise for the technical challenge of the île flottante – and then the thicker custard of the signature trifle.
