Crunchie bar fans will adore these sweet cupcakes, topped with honey-swirled buttercream and a generous sprinkling of crushed, chocolate-covered honeycomb.

Cookies & Cream Drip Cake

Jane’s Patisserie is packed with show-stopping centrepiece cakes, perfect for celebrations. This triple-layer chocolate cake with cookies-and-cream flavoured buttercream is one of our favourites.

Jane uses a classic biscuit crust to create this simple yet elegant tart, and tops the whole thing off with whipped cream to offset the tangy lemon filling. 

Jane's Patisserie S'mores Cookies

S’mores Cookies

by Jane Dunn

Jane’s cookies are justifiably famous, and in Jane’s Patisserie she offers a multitude of variations on the classic chocolate chip. We’re particularly obsessed with these soft, gooey s’mores cookies, studded with mini marshmallows, biscuit pieces, and chocolate.

Jane Patisserie Blueberry Lime Loaf

Blueberry and Lime Loaf Cake

A fresh and fruity loaf cake, packed with blueberries and topped off with tangy lime buttercream, this is the tea time snack of dreams. 

Jane's Patisserie Cheesecake Doughnuts

Chocolate Cheesecake Doughnuts

As well as cakes, cupcakes, and biscuits, Jane’s Patisserie offers plenty for the more adventurous baker. Take these chocolate doughnuts, filled with vanilla cheesecake and coated with sugar. Even if you’ve never made your own doughnuts before, Jane’s clear, straightforward instructions will see you right.

Jane's Patisserie Coconut Cake

Another centrepiece-worthy bake, this incredibly light, coconut-infused sponge is sandwiched with fluffy coconut buttercream and topped with golden toasted coconut. 

Jane's Patisserie Chocolate Cherry Babka

Chocolate Cherry Babka

by Jane Dunn
from Jane’s Patisserie

If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at babka, this failsafe recipe is the place to start. Jane’s Black Forest-inspired babka is stuffed with chocolate and fresh cherries, but she suggests plenty of alternative flavourings, including peppermint, coffee, and orange.

Jane's Patisserie Salted Caramel Cheesecake

No-Bake Salted Caramel Cheesecake

by Jane Dunn

This gloriously over the top cheesecake is drizzled with caramel sauce and topped with toffee popcorn and salted pretzels to create an addictive sweet-salty flavour. 

Jane's Patisserie Rhubarb & Custard Blondies

Rhubarb and Custard Blondies

by Jane Dunn

The classic flavours of rhubarb and custard elevate these squidgy, white chocolate-studded blondies to new heights. If you’re not a fan of rhubarb, you can swap it out for cherries, blackberries, or chunks of apple.
