This was my first attempt at a fruity loaf, so I was a tad apprehensive before I started this recipe. But as a novice, I have to say it is the easiest recipe I have ever used. Perfect for a beginner! The resulting loaf is fruity, moist and sweet with a lovely unexpected tang from the lemon drizzle. It's so good my dad even recommends it and he NEVER recommends my baking (usually too sweet for him)! Give it a go and enjoy.

A teatime-type cake that doesn't last long in our house. Mainly because I eat it for breakfast, which is probably not really advised... surely it's not much different to eating a lemon muffin?

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!

Mango is so underused in cakes and muffins. Why not try it in this luscious, moist tea time cake? It infuses any occasion with a bit of tropical flavour and is a nice change from the norm.
