Banana Loaf Cake – Banana Bread

It was sugested to me that I might make a Banana Bread, or more accurately Banana Loaf Cake.  I have made one before, but that was a chocolate flavoured one.  This one today is a slight variation on a recipe that I found in The Guardian, which used walnuts where I used roasted hazelnuts.  I […]


Paradise Loaf Cake

I was prompted to check a recipe on the Marks and Spencer app, which I have on my tablet, for a Paradise cake.  Made with banana, pineapple, sultanas and pecans, with added flavour from cinnamon and ground ginger and topped with some frosting it seemed an ideal recipe. The recipe calls for a 2lb/900g loaf […]


Moist Coconut Pound Loaf Cake

My sister in Canada simply loves coconut.  She asked about a coconut cake, that may I could make when I visit later in the summer.  So I looked around and found several loaf cakes that looked quite good.  But I actually opted to, very slightly, amend a recipe on Lovefoodies.  The adjustments were really more […]


Seed Cake – With Caraway Seeds

Chocolate Marble Loaf Cake

I do love a nice loaf cake and this chocolate and vanilla one, marbled as it is, whets my appetite immensely.  Luckily it is easy to make and doesn’t take very long, and is well worth the time and effort. Once baked the loaf cake is perfect just as it is, but some people may […]


Lemon Coconut Loaf Cake

I just love coconut, so when I found a recipe for Lemon Coconut Loaf Cake on Allrecipes I just had to try it. A lovely light cake, with some thin icing brushed over the top for more coconut to be sprinkled over is simply wonderful. The recipe is quite easy to follow and doesn’t use a […]


Lemon Blueberry Loaf Cake

A Lemon Blueberry Loaf Cake sounded just too good not to try.  So, from JoyofBaking I bring you this easy recipe.    As always with that site they give the ingredients in both metric and US style measurements.  There is also a video of how to make it. The only difference with mine is that […]
