There’s something so satisfying about loaf cakes, they almost seem better for you than your average cake!

Easy to slice and share, they make the perfect bake to accompany a cuppa and a chat with friends. If you whip one up at the start of the week and keep it safely in an airtight tin you’ll have treats for days, to see you through the Monday blues and beyond.

There’s no need for fancy equipment for this lovely lot either, all you’ll need is a loaf tin, a mixing bowl and a wooden spoon.

Whatever you fancy there’s a loaf cake for every occasion. Our Victoria sandwich loaf is perfect for parties, with its light layers of buttery sponge, rich whipped cream and summery strawberries.

If you’re after something a little lighter you could give our classic tea fruit loaf a go, it goes perfectly with a cuppa (as you might expect) and is packed to bursting with sweet and juicy dried fruit. This

Of course, the real star of the loaf cake show is the classic banana bread. This heavenly treat is the perfect excuse to use up overripe bananas and must surely count towards one of your five a day? In fact, aside from an afternoon treat this also makes a rather delicious breakfast. Toast it and top it with mascarpone cheese and some fresh fruit for an indulgent start to the morning.

Depending on the occasion you could make one large cake, to slice up as and when you need a baking fix or opt for individual mini loaves. You can find the tins for mini loaves from most baking shops and they make lovely food gifts or just portion controlled treats for yourself!

Whichever loaf cake you choose to make, one thing is for sure, it’ll be a popular decision among family and friends!
