Let us eat cake! Can you remember a birthday party, anniversary, wedding that didn’t include a cake in the festivities? Cake means happy times and celebration.
Cakes range from the quick and easy snaking cakes to the more fanciful layered cakes; from heavy pound cakes to light angel food and chiffon cakes. In terms of ingredients… well, when you can make a cake from zucchini and rhubarb then you have to know the sky is pretty much the limit. How many different cakes can you list? What’s your favourite?

This chocolate cake is so moist and decadent you want a second serving. The batter is made with the traditional chocolate cake ingredients such as cocoa powder and buttermilk but the addition of brewed coffee makes this chocolate cake super rich. Pair with a cold glass of milk.
