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!

Traditionally eaten at Hogmanay in Scotland with a wee dram.
A traditional 'cake' to make for Hogmanay. It is a beautifully moist cake, wrapped in pastry to keep it moist.

These delicous fruity and crunchy muffins are ideal to bake in August or September.
After trying a couple of recipes for apple crumble cake we decided to make up our own version but use the blackberries which are in profusion in the hedges of our field at the moment. This is the result and it is lovely, especially warm with ice crea
Here is a recipe my sister in law gave me who is American. The mix comes out like a batter not a dough. You could use other fruit instead of blueberries. The muffins are really lovely but they are not cakes and a bit less sweet than cakes.
Makes 12. These breakfast muffins are best served warm but can be left to cool completely and eaten at any time of the day! I usually substitute cranberries (lightly dusted in icing sugar) for half the blueberries.
Lovely muffins from a wonderful Dutch book only on Muffins.
Not a sweet lover so have used this recipe for years - hits the spot with my family.

I think this came from the Bramley Apple Council. Its a lovely moist cake and keeps well, at least a week. It will also freeze - as will most cakes.
