1. Strawberry Cake by Martha Swift

We had to include this recipe from The Primrose Bakery Book. This pretty pink sponge makes the most of fresh strawberries by using them in both the sponge and the filling. It's the perfect recipe if you've managed to score a bumper crop of strawberries, or as the centrepiece of a Summer birthday party.
