We’re feeling all nostalgic right now. Not sure why, but we keep thinking about how good the 90s and 00s were. Maybe we’re just craving simpler times…

The snacks when we were kids were da bomb, the TV adverts were incredible, and school dinners made us feel all warm and cosy.

Speaking of school dinners, have you noticed how everyone on social media seems to be making school dinner cake? Not that we’re complaining…

You know the one: a traybake made up of a fluffy vanilla sponge, the make-your-teeth-ache-it’s-so-sweet icing, and sprinkles. Lots and lots and lots of sprinkles.

TikTok, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook are overrun with rainbow sprinkles and hundreds and thousands, and we are loving it.

School dinner cake is so popular right now, in fact, that TV cook and cookbook author Juliet Sear recently showed Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby how to make it on This Morning.

Juliet has shared her recipe for the nostalgic cake, and we cannot wait to try it – it’s so easy to make!

If you prefer desiccated coconut to sprinkles, you’d be mad not to try our jam and coconut sponge cake recipe. This will also have you dreaming of school dinner puddings.

Pink custard optional… but not really – who wouldn’t want to drown anything and everything in that stuff?!
