Chocolate cake Britain's favourite, poll finds
Published on 30/07/2012

The "irresistible" combination of chocolate and cake has been described as the reason for chocolate sponge winning the accolade of Britain's best-loved dessert.

A survey of 2,000 adults found the sweet treat beat all other cakes to the number one spot in a poll commissioned by the Good Food Channel to find the nation's favourite cake.

Victoria sponge came in second, while Black Forest gateau and carrot cake placed third and fourth respectively.

The overwhelming reason for respondents' choice was taste, but ten per cent said their preferred cake was chosen due to it reminding them of their grandmother.

It seems many Brits cannot resist a piece of cake, as one in 20 said they eat up to four slices per week, with women more likely to enjoy the dessert than men.

Those looking for the perfect gift for loved ones with a sweet tooth may want to consider sending a chocolate hamper packed with an array of delicacies.
