My grandfather (Sam) was famous for this cake. He would always have some available for anyone who wanted it. We'll miss him, but his carrot cake legacy will always live on! Enjoy!
Be patient - this smells fantastic while it is cooking - wait until it has cooled before serving, though!
This is a light and moist cake that is not too sweet and has a refreshing green tea fragrance. The icing uses cream cheese but has enough sweetness to mask the sour taste. The matcha (green tea) powder gives it a delicate green hue too. This cake can also be baked as a in a 23x33cm (9x13 in) tin or as 2 separate round cakes in two 20cm (8 in) round tins. Adjust baking time accordingly.
I make these so they have a good kick to them, but it's not necessary. It's the icing that gives them the real ginger strength/flavour, the stem ginger is really just for texture. Lemon icing is a good substitute.
A simple and basic method of achieving professional looking cupcakes to enhance any party or social gathering.
This is the best recipe for jam and cream sponge cakes ever. Forever a crowd pleaser, people always ask for more. It's easy, it's quick and most of all, it's so yummy! Heads up, the mixture is not ment to be smooth like a normal sponge cake - no need to beat out all the lumps!
A light Italian sponge.
Light sponge cake with a cherry jam layer, topped with pineapples and glace cherries. This is a twist to the simple upside down pineapple cake.
This is a classic sponge cake that everyone can enjoy!
I make this cake as stress-relief for my exams (what with you geting to mash it together with your hands!) and I can guarantee that every time you make it it'll come out moist and (close-enough) perfect! I usually sandwich it with jam and chocolate butercream, but for a summer party you can't beat halved strawberries and whipped cream.
Stunning and very tasty cake for grown ups. It doesn't contain any flour and it's actually quite easy to make. I called it a layer cake but it's actually only 2 layers... We have to bake a cake first and cool it down. Then prepare the cream we put inside in-between the layers and cool it again in the fridge - well, I prefer it that way :) The only picture i have is when I've made it for Easter... enjoy!
This is a rich and delicious three-layer cake that is studded with toasted pecans. Between the layers is a rich and creamy buttercream icing, with more pecans sprinkled in. A lovely special occasion cake.
A sumptuous and moist carrot cake, studded with sultanas and spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Instead of the usual cream cheese frosting, however, this calls for a light cream cheese glaze. You can use two 20 or 23cm round cake tins instead of the tube cake tin; simply adjust baking time as necessary.
A fun cake for birthdays or a cake sale that looks beautiful. This is a lovely change from the norm.
A creamy, thick icing that pipes easily onto cakes or cupcakes.
This is carrot cake recipe was handed down to me from my great aunt. My husband asks me to make this carrot cake for all special occasions.
This recipe is moderately easy and delicious for special occasions to get your family demanding more! Alternatively, you could opt for a plain vanilla sponge.
An incredible chocolate fix! Nutella is the easiest icing in the world - you simply spread it straight from the jar. I decorated these with mini eggs for Easter, but you can use anything you like.
As seen on my Facebook page "Cake and the Country" - I've been requested to put the recipe and photo on here. Beautiful little cakes which look so impressive but, with a little time and patience, are easily made and have that real wow factor! I've tagged these for Mother's Day - but everyone will love them.
A double-layered sandwich cake with rich chocolaty icing. Perfect as a birthday cake or other celebrations.
