Here is a list with the most popular flavours of cakes that you can bake:

  • Vanilla sponge – You cannot beat this classic sponge flavour with buttercream and jam. Wheat flour (self-raising so that no baking powder is needed), sugar, butter, and eggs. In the UK, we simply mix all of this together to form a smooth batter. The batter is then poured in a long or round tin. The Victoria sponge is made from two sponges, topped with cream or buttercream with both also serving as a layer in the middle.
  • Chocolate cake: A classic chocolate sponge cake with cocoa added to the mixture. Vanilla or chocolate buttercream is used as a filling. You can add cocoa powder according to the recipe, or to your personal taste. It is striking to see the inclusion of cocoa batter in a madeira mixture.
  • Lemon Cake – A lemon cake with a lemon curd filling is very popular in the summer. It has a refreshing and surprising taste. Lemon curd is another easy addition to your batter. You can also drizzle a delicious lemon icing that hardens.
  • Carrot Cake – A traditional cake with a hint of spice, and a cream cheese frosting. The carrot is naturally sweet and can be added to any recipe.
