Let us eat cake! The UK’s 5 favourite cakes!

Let us eat cake! The UK’s 5 favourite cakes!

Who doesn't love cake? We, Brits, sure know our cakes! A recent surcey revealed the UK’s 5 favourite cakes ... and we're not surprised! Which category do you fall under? 


1. Lemon Drizzle - The winner

A recent study showed that 40% of UK residents love a good old lemon drizzle cake. A classic favourite, this cake is perfect for any occasion - from afternoon tea to a birthday party.

This Pistachio Rose & Lemon Drizzle Loaf Cake by Ginger Bakers is a delicious take on the classic recipe, with pistachios and a hint of rose, topped with a zesty lemon drizzle and fragrant rose icing.

The Lemon Drizzle Letterbox Cake by Luckraft's Cakes, on the other hand, is a smaller fun version of it which you can personalise with a message to be iced on top. (Perfect gift idea? Hooray!) 

A great free-from option is the Blueberry and Lemon Loaf Cake (Gluten & Dairy Free) by Elvira's Secret Pantry, a light and refreshing cake perfect for spring or summer.


2. Chocolate Fudge Cake

Chocolate fudge cake is another classic favourite with 38% of UK residents voting for it as their top cake, and it's not hard to see why!

For a twist on the classic recipe, why not try these hand decorated Happy Birthday Cakes by The Original Cake Company, fun and festive cakes covered in colourful sweets.


3. Chocolate Brownies

36% of UK residents said that chocolate brownies is their favourite cake! (We can't say no to a good choccy brownie either.)

Chocolate brownies range from classic chocolate to more adventurous flavours. This Award Winning Floral Brownies by Mode & Grace are not your average brownies! Made with dark chocolate, they have a rich and intense flavour with a hint of floral notes and seasonal edible flowers. If you're feeling indulgent, try the Personalised Brownie Slab by The Bakeonomist - the slab has a gooey chocolate spread that runs through it, as well as crunchy chocolate chip pieces made with the highest quality ingredients. 


4. Chocolate Muffin

Another chocolatey treat that Brits can't get enough of is the traditional chocolate muffin, with 31% of people voting for it as their favourite cake. For a twist on the classics, you can actually bake your own with this vegan chocolate muffin mix - they’re also free from gluten, making them a healthier treat that is just as delicious. Nevertheless, the chocolate muffin selection by artisan bakers The Original Cake Company never fails to satisfy those taste buds (and the heart).


5. Sticky Toffee Pudding

Finally, coming in at number five is sticky toffee pudding - a classic British dessert that 29% of UK residents listed as their favourite cake. This Sticky Toffee Letterbox Cake is made up of a moist date sponge which has been topped with a toffee icing and a sticky toffee sauce. Try it as an afternoon treat or send it as a gift to land straight on your loved ones doorstep!
