Whether you’re looking to impress family, colleagues or just yourself (and there’s nothing wrong with that!), there are a few delicious recipes that will hit the spot every time. None of them require an advanced qualification in domestic goddessery but all of them are utterly delicious. Pick up everything you need from Asda.com and get cracking.

Mary Berry, eat your heart out…

THE ONLY THING BETTER THAN LEMON DRIZZLE CAKE

What’s more delicious than a lemon drizzle cake? Well, not much – but a lemon drizzle cake with a lime twist is definitely up there. And for such a crowdpleaser, the recipe’s actually pretty simple…

SWEET TREATS WITH A FRUITY TANG

It’s blackberry season, so bag a stash and then have a crack at our Blackberry Swirl Yoghurt Loaf recipe. Delicious as a teatime treat or lunchtime sugar fix. We’re not sure it counts towards your five a day but it certainly tastes good…

COELIACS DON’T NEED TO MISS OUT ON DESSERT

Having food intolerances or allergies can be tough when it comes to treats, but this delicious recipe for orange and chocolate cake is wheat and gluten free! Yes, really – ground almonds are the basis for this decadent dish.

A SWEET FIX EVEN IF YOU’RE AVOIDING SUGAR

Just because you’re dodging sugar for health or dietary reasons doesn’t mean you have to go without comfort foods. Carrot cake can be just as enjoyable without sugar – the carrots and dried fruits provide natural sweetness, enhanced by a few spoonfuls of Stevia. It’s so sweet and creamy that nobody will know the difference.

VEGANS CAN EAT CAKE TOO!

We bet you’ve never baked a cake with parsnips before – which is exactly why cooking a vegan recipe is a great test for your new-found baking skills. If you’re catering for a kids party, this parsnip, fruit and nut cake is a sweet, spicy, dairy-free delight that’s bound to go down a treat with mums and dads.
