If you can’t find that perfect Father’s Day present – why not bake Dad a cake?
But what sort of cake is best for your Papa?
There are so many cakes that are very feminine and “girly” which makes baking for Mother’s Day pretty easy, like this blueberry bundt cake. A great cake for mums certainly, but I couldn’t imagine giving that to Dad.
For guys I tend to keep the cakes I bake more traditional – chocolate, lemon, carrot and cheesecake are the favourites of the men in my life. Or for something a little fun and delicious, how about a giant chocolate chip cookie for Dad?
Here are a few cakes ideas for Father’s Day.
When only the richest, most decadent fudgey chocolate cake will do for Dad. Utter indulgence for Father’s Day.
Bake dad a giant cookie for Father’s Day. With this Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake recipe you can have the best of both worlds – chocolate chip cookies and a chocolate chip cake. Added bonus for Dad – he can always say he only had one cookie if he end up eating the whole delicious thing.
When I say “simple banana cake”, I mean “amazingly delicious really simple banana cake”. Who knew flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, egg and bananas could be so good? An easy cake to bake for Dad that’s especially good if you’re baking with kids.

If your dad’s more of a brownie man try this delicious slice-like cake with a rich and dense chocolate brownie cake, followed by a layer of nutella with chopped hazelnuts and a luscious chocolate ganache layer. All topped off with more even more hazelnuts.
Fabulous recipe that was first published 100 years ago. A cake that’s been around that long must be a winning recipe. And it is. Another great cake for baking with kids.
I hope this list of suggestions helps you find a perfect cake to bake for your Dad this Father’s Day. Or maybe it will inspire you to bake something else that your Dad will love.
