Cake Week 2020: have your cake and eat it with these delicious recipes

Maple bundt party cake

From zesty maple bundt to the perfect coffee, maple and walnut cake, we have rounded up the very best of our cake recipes for you to enjoy this Cake Week.

Cake Week (31 August – 6 September 2020) is all about celebrating the joys of cake with friends and family. It’s also the perfect excuse to get creative in the kitchen and enjoy a slice or two of your favourite bakes.

Bake this fluffy and terrifically zesty maple bundt cake for a real showstopper of a cake that is surprising easy to whip up. This is the perfect celebration cake that is best enjoyed with family and friends.

Our gooey and indulgent coffee, maple and walnut cake uses pure Canadian maple syrup to give a delicious twist on this classic British bake. Paired with a cuppa, it’s a little slice of heaven.

If there’s one bake that’s sure to go down a storm it’s our iced maple lemon cake – a tangy loaf cake that’s citrusy with a hint of pure maple syrup. Last year, lemon drizzle was crowned as Britain’s favourite cake flavour so it’s no surprise this recipe is always a crowd-pleaser. With this easy-to-follow recipe you can even get the little ones involved in helping you in the kitchen this Cake Week.

Who says vegans can’t get a bite of the action during Cake Week? The Loopy Whisk’s vegan maple pecan cupcakes recipe is perfect for everyone and makes the perfect mid-morning or afternoon treat.

Don’t forget to share your maple Cake Week bakes with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
