    There's nothing like a home-made cake. Those mass-produced refrigerated confections that look mouth-watering at coffee-shops are almost always a tasteless disappointment. We prefer the ones we make at home.

    This is one of those 'good news' and 'bad news' recipes. The bad news is this cake takes a lot of time to make. The good news is that it isn't actually difficult - just time-consuming. The bad news is that it's quite expensive. The good news is that it's really worth it for a special occasion. To make it easy on yourself, prepare it over two days. The glace oranges have to be soaked overnight, so I'd prepare them, boil the oranges and make the syrup on one day, then make the cake and finish the glace oranges the next day, and serve the cake on the third day. I think it's probably better for keeping in the fridge for a day before it's served. I was really, really sceptical about making this cake, but did it because a friend particularly wanted it for her birthday. To my surprise it turned out dense and moist and delicious and full of orangey flavour. It was a real hit. It's actually not the most attractive cake in the world when you take it out of the oven, but add the glace oranges to the top (buy them if you don't want to make them yourself) and it comes up quite presentable. Served with the Orange and Sauternes Sauce and a dollop of thick cream you'll forget all about what a pain it was to make. :-) In fact, my friend says her neighbour turned up at breakfast time the next day asking if there was any more of 'that cake' left! This recipe is adapted from one that appeared in Australia's "Better Homes and Gardens" magazine. The syrup recipe is pinched from Chrissyo's Orange and Almond Cake Recipe #38551 .

    Recipe #188922

    Bananas and caramel are a combination made in heaven. This cake tastes incredible with its combination of bananas and caramel drenched cake. Further, it looks spectacular, like one of those cakes you see in a high class coffee-shop - but it's actually really easy to make. This recipe is originally from Australia's 'Delicious' magazine. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

    Recipe #160539

    This recipe is adapted from an Upside-Down Caramel Banana Cake recipe I found in Australia's 'Delicious' magazine. If you don't eat all of this cake immediately, it keeps well in the fridge. We just cut a couple of slices, put them on a plate, uncovered, and pop them into the microwave for a minute on HIGH. Serve drizzled with extra golden syrup and cream. If you want to try the Upside-Down Banana Cake, it's posted here as Recipe #160539.

    Recipe #168362

    You won't believe how simple it is to make these delicious fruit cakes! Just remember to soak the fruit the night before, ready for a couple of minutes mixing in the morning. This recipe makes two cakes - don't halve the recipe, believe me, you'll want to eat both. If not, eat one and freeze one for later. This recipe is adapted from Irish food writer, Delia Smith's, Irish Tea Bread. (Preparation time does not include soaking fruits overnight.)

    Recipe #86648

    This unusual cake has been a big hit with our guests here at 'Avalon'. It's not a large cake but it's rich and moist and the topping/filling is bittersweet. A chocolate cake more suited to adult taste - although my 2 year old great-nephew ate it with gusto and pronounced it, 'Yummmm!' Decorate it, if possible, with fresh edible flowers from your garden. I use violets. The recipe is from a book called 'Devonshire Flavour' which I bought whilst I was living in Devon in 1979 - and it's taken me this long to discover this terrific cake.

    Recipe #84895

    This cake is light, lemony and ultra moist - and you can whip it up in no time. Absolute heaven!

    Recipe #84027

    I searched for 20 years to find the definitive ginger cake recipe - this is it! So easy to make and full of flavour it keeps well and can be frozen - iced or uniced. This cake is ideal for morning or afternoon tea. I also like to take it on picnics. If you prefer a lighter gingerbread, substitute golden syrup for the treacle. If you have a food processor this recipe is even quicker - simply process the dry ingredients until mixed then, with the motor running, pour the wet ingredients through the hopper. Process until well combined and pour into the lined tin.

    Recipe #83505

    This is my first post! Every time I make this cake people beg me for the recipe. Its adapted from an authentic Italian recipe and it's incredibly quick and easy to make. It uses everyday ingredients (omit the Amaretto if you don't have any) and the result is a moist, almost pudding-like cake which is full of flavour. Perfect for a decadent afternoon tea or to serve as a dessert. Hope you like it!

    Recipe #82828

    This is the richest, heaviest, moistest, most alcoholic Christmas cake you're likely to find anywhere! It's from Australia's "Better Homes and Gardens" magazine (December 2002). The tablespoon measurements for the spices are correct - this cake is so flavoursome it can take this quantity of spice.

    Recipe #104270

    At Christmas time we love to serve our visitors these tiny Christmas cakes, baked in muffin tins. They're easy to make, dark, moist and full of flavour. Start this recipe at least one day ahead as the fruit needs to soak overnight. Preparation time does not include this step.

    Recipe #105332

    Easy cake. Very rich. A favorite. Not a clue where the recipe came from. If you want, you can sub a can of sweetened condensed milk for the topping.

    Recipe #90846

    A quick, easy and extremely good chocolate cake. My mother often baked this cake for the jackaroos (cowboys) when she was a cook on the cattle stations (ranch) in outback Australia. Be careful not to overcook this cake and it will stay moist and fresh for days. ENJOY. I use this recipe on a regular basis.
