New Bran Loaf – This one is my version of the classic All Bran loaf, it’s my brother’s favourite cake and the recipe has featured in many church magazines since I first published it.


Gran’s Ginger Cakethis is a wartime recipe without eggs, and it has won prizes. It’s moist and sticky and very gingery, great as a pud with custard too.


Snow Cake – my Mum’s recipe and my daughter’s favourite cake, light, buttery and crumbly , it just melts in the mouth.

I have to have a lemon drizzle cake in here, sorry no photo, but my favourite is BBC Good Food’s Lighter Lemon Drizzle Cake 

And for when I want a chocolate cake there is:

Low Fat Chocolate Brownie which I like to serve warm with berries and vanilla ice cream


You may have noticed I don’t go in for iced cakes, I find them too sweet. My favourite above all of these cakes would have to be a homemade scone, just warm with jam and clotted cream. My friend says I make the best scones, so maybe I will have to make some for the weekend.

Enjoy your weekend, but first why not pop over to read some more 5 on Friday posts.
