Cake recipes to impress, including the ultimate chocolate fudge cake, classic Victoria sponge cake, a banana cake recipe and Mary Berry's orange layer cake. Whether you prefer something sweeter, fruity, chocolatey, or lighter, we all have our weakness when it comes to cake. There's also always a reason to have cake, whether you're celebrating a birthday, got a charity bake sale or you're expecting guests for a coffee, so there’s no excuse to not give one of our fab recipes a go!

Baking a beautiful cake doesn't have to be difficult or stressful. The baking itself should be simple enough and if you're looking for something more elaborate and show-stopping, you can take some time on the decorating to make them look the part.

Give our best-ever chocolate fudge cake recipe a go - it's the ultimate in chocolate indulgence and very rich, so it's perfect as a chocolic's dessert or would make a birthday cake to remember. As it's so rich, serve it in small portions, especially if it's following a big meal. This cake's topping sets very quickly so if you need to, use a hot, wet palette knife to smooth it and give you more time for decorating and make it easier.

You'll find some traditional cake recipes in our collection, as well as some less common flavours and ingredients including parsnips and courgettes, which help reduce the quantity of fat needed in the cake - often replacing butter. Yes, we know it’s a little unusual but trust us... You can either play it safe or try something totally new, but whatever your preference, all our cake recipes are easy to make and won't keep you in the kitchen too long.

From show-stoppers to simple loaf cakes, we've got them all, so take your pick depending on the occasion and make a delicious cake that will impress everyone.
