Is Ireland's Favourite Cake!
What do you think?
From classic cakes such as Victoria sponge, to a slice of zesty Lemon Drizzle or an indulgent Chocolate cake, we all have a favourite. The different variety of cakes across the globe range in flavour and presentation, historically this has been down to the type of ingredients available in each nation and the taste preferences developed in each country throughout the years.
Leisure, one of the leading range cooker brands in the UK, has analysed global search volumes to reveal the world’s favourite cakes in each nation. You can view the interactive graphic here.
Ireland’s favourite cake can be looked upon as a bit of a surprise, as traditional favourites such as carrot cake, Victoria sponge and fruit cake are overshadowed in favour of a citrusy Lemon Drizzle.
