How to cook the perfect loaf cake

First, ensure that you choose the correct size tin – they come in 1lb and 2lb standard sizes (the recipe will specify which you need).

Then use a ready-made loaf tin liner, which saves time cutting and lining with paper, and makes lifting the cake out effortless. These liners can be bought from independent kitchen shops or larger stores such as Lakeland or Dunelm.

Here are three recipes to get you started.


Yogurt Cake

We get many requests, but one of our most requested recipes is the Yogurt Cake from an early Dairy Diary.

It’s yummy, but I think its appeal is down to its simplicity. It’s incredibly quick to make. Give it a try, you won’t believe how speedy it is.


Pineapple, Coconut & Fruit Loaf

One of my particular favourite loaf cakes is this Pineapple, Coconut & Fruit Loaf.

It’s moist with the addition of pineapple juice but also has a slight crunch thanks to the coconut. Delicious!


Lincolnshire Plum Bread

Then there’s this Plum Bread from the Around Britain cookbook.

It’s a classic from Lincolnshire, adapted from a recipe created at The George at Stamford.
