The traditions of British baking stretch back to King Alfred and the burnt cakes, so it's no surprise that you all have such a wealth of cakes, biscuits and other sweet goodies in your repertoire. From tea breads to celebration cakes, there is plenty here to appeal!

This is something I bake each Christmas,it was my grandmas
recipe and goes down well with all the family.

I make my Stollen for Christmas following this recipe which I have adapted to our taste over the years for more than two decades. You should be used to baking with yeast to make it. It takes quite some time to make but it is really worth the effort!
An alternative to mince pies!
From Dan Lepard
a lovely, alternative flavour for hot cross buns. The recipe is from a Good Food magazine (April'99), which I have altered slightly.
This classical walnuts cake is very rich with nuts and always welcome after good dinner and with the glass of good wine. I like nuts and wine so try it. Also easy to make just bake layer and mix ingredients for filling.
This is a firm favourite within my family...I have made it like this for several decades....It is full of calories so the food police won't like it much...But everything in moderation is what I say.
A variation on lemon drizzle cake
