Top 10 Best Charlotte Cake Recipes

While my little boy was watching his children’s TV channel, a show called Nuzzle and Scratch (A British children’s television programme about two eponymous puppet alpacas) was on and their favourite food is sponge fingers. The point of this post is that the two puppet alpacas had decided to make a cake with sponge fingers. The odd thing is the actor who was pretending to be the baker said their “sponge finger cake” was one of the best Charlotte cakes he had ever seen!  What was he on about? I think its time we found out as I bring you…

Now this is what I call a serious birthday cake! I would have ranked it much higher because most of you know by now that I love strawberries. (see my post “Top 10 Best Double-Dipped Strawberries”) but there is no making guide in the link making it a bit of a fail, but that doesn’t mean it is not an amazing looking cake anyway.

8 – The Plain Jane (or should that be Charlotte)

What I like about this is that it doesn’t look like art, it is just a basic Charlotte cake that we can all make, and while it doesn’t have a great guide to making them in the image like it does cover most of it with some easy to follow pictures.

4 – The art of contrast

While this one is basically the same as number 1 the different choice in berries make this stand out a lot more. Sadly there is no recipe or making guide in the link, but the good news is that it goes to a website that sells them! I can hardly make toast let alone a Charlotte cake so for me this is perfect!

I find it amazing how a very basic Tiramisu cake with some few well-placed sponge fingers can look so amazing!

2 – A Kiss from the rose

Is it art or is it a sponge finger cake? What I loved about this is the self-made sponge finger wall that makes for a perfect cake tin for the caramel apple insides!

1 – Pass me a spoon and look away, because this is going to get messy!!!

I don’t joke around when I say to you all: I would eat this until I went blind! The thing with Charlotte cakes is that they are essentially dessert cakes. And if ever there was an image of a dessert I could eat a truckload of it is this one, nothing special to make a with a great step-by-step and recipe guide in the link.

  3. This blog is awesome. Not only do I now know that if I were a dessert, I would be one that could be served hot or cold (versatile!), but I also get tonnes of amusement from the list titles alone – so thank you for following me and making me aware of it’s existence!

  4. My daughter cam home last night and I showed them to her. We both agree # 1 & 7 are our favorites. We have never really heard of sponge fingers but she can follow any recipe. I will let you know how it turns out when she makes one. Too bad you are so far away or I would send you some.

  5. Will keep you posted as I think I may try to make this soon. I have a strawberry lover in the house, and lets be honest nothing beats chocolate and comfort food.

  6. Hmmmmm, I was doing fine until I aw this post, now my stomach is telling me it is hungry. As for chocolate, it makes everything better! I wonder who will eat #1 first, you or your little boy!

  7. mmm nom nom – I would eat ANY of them but my favorite that made ‘me’ lick the screen was the Strawberry Mouse. Oh piggy THUD. That had me at strawberries – one of my all time favorite snacks. Yummo! XOXO – Bacon

  8. These look wonderful. When I told my wife that I would like a Charlotte cake she said you want me to make you a cake, for her name is Charlotte. I said yes but I want a Charlotte cake, then I told her about this blog. She is interested so when she has time she will look at it again and fix one of them.

  9. Well that is OK because with these, the fruit cake ones are the better looking ones, but I have to say number 1 wins me over everytime, I am surprised I am not as round as I am tall, Don’t even fail me metabolism.

  10. All look so yummy. I would make your number one, and add strawberry mouse and chocolate covered strawberries. Looked at the recipe seems pretty simply but looks very enticing. Ivan

  11. Oh, you are so naughty Russell! Just think how many calories I took in just be looking at these delicious cakes! Shame on you! 😛

  12. Congratulations! Only four of the 10 disgraced by chocolate!!

    (I simply cannot let the chocolate debate go – – unless/until you’ve informed me you’re tired of it!)

    🙂

  13. Well, I will take one of each. But I think I like the fruity ones best. I know, I am being a traitor to the all mighty chocolate, but I do love fruit! 😉

Which one did you like?
