A delicious, egg-free fruit loaf that's rich and moist. Serve thickly sliced with lashings of butter. Enjoy for afternoon tea, elevenses or pop into packed lunches.

This triple chocolate loaf is dense, moist and always perfect. Unfortunately it is also very easy to make and therefore very tempting for a lazy Thursday evening. Responsibly, I did manage to make this cake last weekend for a friend's party and it was a huge hit.

This recipe makes two lemon poppy seed loaves, one for now one for later! These are lovely tea cakes with delectable and delicate flavours, made even softer and fluffier with natural yoghurt. A treat for elevenses or afternoon tea.

This was originally a batch of fairy cakes, but I had made the mixture before I realised we had no cake cases. So this was put into a lined loaf tin with some jam and my husband told me it was just like jam roly poly, but in a loaf shape instead!

This is a really quick and easy fruit loaf recipe. It's really easy to make. I always use a loaf tin but you could def use a cake tin if you didn't have one. Great to freeze too.
