As the nation celebrates the Platinum Jubilee, many will be congratulating the Queen for 70 years on the throne over a slice of cake at a street party.
In this special edition of our monthly readers’ recipes series, we asked readers to share their homemade treats that can be served to neighbours with pride, as well as being fit for a queen.
From a family-favourite chocolate fridge cake that is easy to make and share to a summery raspberry cake and a nostalgic jelly dessert, these recipes are something to celebrate (and can even be enjoyed with a cup of tea while watching the festivities in front of the television).
