Simnel Cake

This classic fruit cake is traditionally baked at Easter.


Lemon Drizzle Slices

This classic afternoon tea cake is decorated with a feather icing and it looks really impressive, but it’s incredibly easy to make.

Triple Layer Chocolate Cake with Walnuts

This layer cake is a chocoholic’s dream.

Christmas Cake

This is a classic, richly fruited Christmas cake – deliciously moist and substantial.

White Christmas Cake

This is my mother-in-law’s recipe and it makes an excellent alternative to a classic, dark Christmas cake.

Buche de Noel

I like filling this decadent Christmas log with whipped cream and berries and topping it with chocolate buttercream icing.

Summer Fruit Genoise

A Genoise is a particularly light and delicate kind of sponge, traditionally served with fresh fruit and cream – ideal for tea on a summer’s day. This is may favourite way to prepare it and serve it.

Christmas Chocolate Brownie Cake

For those who aren’t keen on traditional Christmas cake, try this indulgent festive brownie cake.

Victoria Sponge

This is a delicious British tea time classic. I like to add whipped cream to the filling to make it really special.
