Prune and Armagnac Creole CakeMakes an 8 inch (20 cm) square or round cake

Prune and Armagnac Creole Cake

This beautiful cake makes a welcome change from a standard fruit cake at Christmas, but is still full of boozy fruit and flavour!

 
 
Royal IcingFor a rough 'snow' scene for a 7 inch (18 cm) square or an 8 inch (20 cm) round cake

Royal Icing

I confess this has often been for me a last-minute affair late on Christmas Eve. Very often there's the odd robin or Father Christmas handed down through generations to decorate with, but failing that, a sprig of holly in the centre of the cake will

 
 
Swiss Roll

Swiss Roll

Will anyone still make a Swiss roll? we asked ourselves. We made one and guess what, it was absolutely lovely, so here it is, and actually it’s very easy to make.

 
 
Plain SconesMakes about 8

Plain Scones

Plain, meaning without added fruit, but light, airy and just the right amount of crusty surface makes these scones the perfect backdrop to preserves and clotted cream.

Preserved Ginger Cake

Old-fashioned Cherry Cake

Old-fashioned Cherry Cake

OK. It is an old-fashioned, very English kind of cake, and yes the cherries sometimes sink but believe me there are many people who are still very attached to it. If you’re one of these, we have found the old-fashioned creaming-block-butter method works

 
 
Spiced Apple and Cider CakeServes 8

Spiced Apple and Cider Cake

This is quite definitely a dessert cake. The combination of spices, the hint of orange and the balance of tart apples and cake are perfect. It needs a large dollop of crème fraiche or whipped cream to go with it.

 
 
Pear and Almond Cake with Streusel Topping

Pear and Almond Cake with Streusel Topping

This would be my choice for autumn when there are lots of lovely ripe pears around. We like to eat it served in slices with pools of Jersey pouring cream.
