    • Nutella chocolate cake

      If you’re a massive Nutella fan you’re going to love this recipe. A rich chocolate sponge cake made with Nutella and topped with, you guessed it, more Nutella! This delicious, gooey chocolate cake is perfect served alongside vanilla ice or a dollop of fresh cream - serve for dessert or as an afternoon treat with a cuppa. The trick is to make sure the cake is not completely cooled when spreading the Nutella on top – the slight warmness to the cake will make the Nutella melt and make it much easier to spread evenly. Store this cake in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

    • Double chocolate swirled cake

      Double chocolate swirled cake

      The Great British Bake Off's double chocolate swirled cake is sure to impress. Ask the Bakers what kind of cake they make for a birthday or other special occasion and almost inevitably they say chocolate – the richer and more eye-catching the better. This one ticks all the boxes. Dark and white chocolate mixtures are swirled together in the tins to make the sponge layers and these are sandwiched with a rum truffle ganache. The final, spectacular touch is the icing: dark chocolate ganache marbled with white chocolate. The cake tastes even richer if left for a day before cutting.
