Chocolate and Salted Caramel Traybake

This traybake recipe by Waitrose offers a lovely twist on chocolate cake and the icing is perfect for lovers of salted caramel. The sponge was really easy to bake and comes out super soft and velvety. The sweet icing sets the cake off nicely and contrasts well with the chocolate sponge.

Everyday Fruit Cake

This all-in-one fruit cake, is ideal if you are short on time, and you like fruit cake of course. It produces a really nice tasting fruit cake. Simple, but still very pleasing to the taste buds. We took a couple of slices to the beach and sat in the dunes of Holkham to eat it, along with a thermos of tea and it was perfect cake for that.

Easter Simnel Cake

Simnel Cake has become a traditional Easter cake. The cake is full of fruit and spice, which gives a lovely moist cake, packed full of flavour. A layer of marzipan through the centre and the decoration on top, gives the Simnel cake its traditional taste. The balls on the top represent the eleven apostles so the number of balls is significant to this cake.
