    Chunks of apple and chocolate go together surprisingly well in this moist loaf cake. All my friends love it, even those who don't normally like cakes with fruit in!

    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 is a 'somebody needs to restrain me before I eat the whole thing' type cake which is pretty easy to make and if you think about it, it is two of your five-a-day with banana and dates in it. Perfect spread with butter served a cup of English tea.

    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.

    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.

    Fruity loaf cake ideal for afternoon tea! Coating the cherries with flour before stirring in keeps them from sinking.

    Fresh juicy strawberries and fragrant lemons combine for this soft and airy strawberry lemon loaf cake. Adjust the amount of lemon zest that you use to increase or decrease the lemon intensity.

    This is my simple banana loaf, the mixture goes into 2 loaf tins or makes 12 cupcakes/muffins. My mum made this once and I just adapted the recipe to experiment with textures and flavours.
