Coffee and Walnut Sponge Cake

Coffee and Walnut Sponge Cake

This is a revised, more contemporary, version of one of the original sponge cakes in the earlier book. I am still very fond of it and have continued to make it regularly over the years.

 
 
Apricot Hazelnut Meringue CakeServes: 6-8

Apricot Hazelnut Meringue Cake

This used to be a rather soft, rather squashy meringue, but now I like it crisper and chewier. Either way it’s loved by everyone. You can of course use any other fruit – summer berries or in the winter passion fruit.

 
 
Strawberries and Cream Sponge Cake

Strawberries and Cream Sponge Cake

This may look a little complicated, but in fact the final result makes it so much easier to serve for a party

 
 
Squidgy Chocolate Cake

Squidgy Chocolate Cake

In the late ’70s this cake went down a storm, and still people tell me they always have it on their birthday! Because it is not made with flour it’s incredibly light and soufflé-like.

 
 
Chocolate Fudge CakeServes 6-8

Chocolate Fudge Cake

Wholemeal flour adds lightness to this stunning, classic cake - and of course you can kid yourself that it's a healthy option too! What could be better with a cup of tea?

 
 
Venetian Zabaglione CakeServes 8

Venetian Zabaglione Cake

This is my adaptation of a cake still served in the famous Harry’s Bar in Venice. You can eat it sipping a Bellini cocktail or with coffee at any time of day. But for me, lunch in the restaurant with this as a dessert has always been a sublime treat.

 
 
Dark Jamaican Gingerbread

Dark Jamaican Gingerbread

This cake, originally from the sugar-and-spice island of Jamaica, has sadly become a factory-made clone, but made at home it’s dark, sticky, fragrant with ginger – the real thing.

 
 
Iced Lemon Curd Layer Cake

Iced Lemon Curd Layer Cake

This one’s always been a winner with my family and friends – it’s even become a much-requested birthday cake. This time round we’ve added a whipped cream and lemon curd icing to make it even more special.

 
 
Sticky Toffee Loaf Cake with Fudge Icing

Sticky Toffee Loaf Cake with Fudge Icing

It’s the dates (as in the famous pudding) that give this dark, sticky cake its toffee flavour, which is complemented beautifully by the fudge-flavoured icing.

 
 
Apricot Crumble MuffinsMakes 6 large muffins

Apricot Crumble Muffins

You can make these with ready-to-eat dried apricots, but in the summer they are even better made with fresh.
