A selection of recipes from around the internet, which you absolutely should bake this summer!


This strawberry cake looks so jammy and delicious.

My very own feather light almond cake is a wonderful summer cake, flavoured ever so slightly with lemon zest. It’s also naturally gluten-free! For a show-stopping summer cake then my summer berry cake is also a massive hit.

Good Food have a popular summer berry drizzle cake and if you want more of a classic, I recently shared my go-to lemon drizzle recipe.

For a vegan summer cake, Lazy Cat Kitchens summer berry cake has got you covered.

An Italian classic, this lemon cake would be a wonderful afternoon treat.

Pimms cupcakes? Yes please!

If you want to try something cute and dainty, my golden milk cupcakes with mascarpone cream and summer berries are all sorts of delicious.

Dairy free and gluten free almond cake


Nothing says summer quite like strawberries and cream and there is nothing more wonderful to pair it with than soft, chewy meringue. My pavlova is my go to recipe if I want to impress!

For something that looks impressive but are actually quite simple, these cheesecakes jars fit the bill.

Try your hand at a British classic; summer berry pudding.

Pimms cheesecake is the ultimate summer dessert.

Dough and Pastry

These strawberry shortcake doughnuts look DIVINE.

How pretty do these summer tartlets look?

This strawberry eclair recipe looks so fancy.

Frozen Treats

Popsicle’s are the simplest things to make this summer and there are so many amazing flavours. Roasted berry and honey yoghurt, strawberry lime and black pepper and peach melba all sound so interesting!

Ice-cream is another fun one to get creative with in the kitchen. And you don’t need to have a ice-cream maker to make yummy ice-cream! This no-churn strawberry ice-cream doesn’t need any special equipment nor does this Mary Berry lemon yoghurt ice-cream.


Home-made lemonade is a wonderful thing to make in the summer. Try different flavour combos such as spicy ginger lemonade and or this pretty pink lemonade?

If you want something a bit stronger, these frozen mango and lime margaritas look fab.
