Meghan Markle is known for having many a hidden talent – first up was calligraphy (which she put to good use while making an anniversary gift for Prince Harry), then she surprised the world by speaking Spanish during a day trip to a charitable organisation, Homeboy Industries, with the Duke.

Now, she's proven she's got serious skills in the kitchen too, after whipping up a Bake Off-worthy lemon cake. Warning: you will want to eat this cake after viewing.

The Duchess created the tasty-looking dessert using lemons grown in the garden of her Montecito home, giving it a special personal touch, and the recipients – the staff at World Central Kitchen – were over the moon with the thoughtful gift.

Sharing a snap of the cake on Twitter, the WCK wrote: "In honour of #WomensHistoryMonth, WCK worked with Archewell, the non-profit created by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, to provide meals & share a message of appreciation & support in Chicago. Dessert was a lemon olive oil cake baked by The Duchess—with lemons from her garden!"

They followed up with an additional series of tweets sharing more about the work they've been carrying out. "Since WCK’s Covid response began in Chicago, we’ve served nearly 500,000 meals," they wrote. "Today, Dorri of the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago—which has distributed 60,000 meals with WCK—and Sarah, co-owner of Fat Shallot restaurant, shared a safely distanced lunch with women picking up meals."

The WCK also said, "Women are on the frontlines of our work: making and serving meals, volunteering, and leading businesses and organizations that serve their communities each day. Support the women-owned businesses partnering with WCK and the families we serve at http://wck.org/iwd2021."

This isn't the first time Meghan has tried her hand at baking either – while on a 2018 tour of Australasia with Prince Harry (during her pregnancy with Archie), it's believed that the Duchess baked a loaf of banana bread, which she presented as a gift while visiting a family-run farm in Dubbo.

We also know, thanks to Harry's recent interview with James Corden, that he and the Duchess like to start their day off by eating waffles, which the Duke said Meghan uses a "beautiful organic mix" for.

Anybody else thinking a Meghan cookbook could one day be a possibility?
