A classic sponge cake made into a chocolate sponge cake. This is completely fail-safe. Use a good quality cocoa powder (not drinking chocolate) for best results!

Taking the traditional Victoria sponge variants of chocolate and coffee and putting them together! It all came about from the other half's love of coffee chocolates. I suggest you should be familiar with making sponges before attempting this, but it's pretty easy.

This cake uses ground almonds to replace the flour usually found in cakes. Be careful when preparing the almonds in a food processor because electric machines bring out the oil in nuts. Whizz a handful at a time.

This two-layer sponge cake is heavily spiked with Irish stout and Irish cream. Stout is mixed into the chocolate cake mixture before being baked and the liqueur is mixed into the icing. A deliciously rich and flavoursome cake. You can also make this recipe as cupcakes.
