Best Mary Berry bakes

There are few things more comforting than cake, so as you prepare for winter, huddle down in front of DStv with a slice (or three!) of your favourite Mary Berry treat.

Mary Berry Britain's Best Home Cook

1. Mary’s chocolate cake

Everyone needs a go-to chocolate cake recipe and this one is a clear winner. It’s super easy and is made with only six ingredients – with some cream and jam to sweeten the deal, of course. Get the recipe here. 

2. Mary’s cherry cake

The combination of almonds and cherries feels like a special treat, and yet it’s just as easy to whip together. Get the recipe here. 

3. White chocolate and ginger cheesecake

Who doesn’t love a baked cheesecake? The addition of ginger makes this one perfect for the cooler weather. Get the recipe here. 

4. Mini apple and almond cakes

These cakes can be eaten warm or cold, so feel free to pop one into your lunchbox if you’re on the go. Or serve them to family as a special treat. Get the recipe here. 

5. Reduced-sugar carrot cake

This carrot cake is every bit as spicy as the classic, but substituting agave syrup for sugar makes it just that little bit healthier. Get the recipe here.
