BBC One Masterchef’s Gregg Wallace, ITV This Morning’s Gino D’Acampo and ITV Loose Women’s Nadia Sawalha are amongst the celebrity chefs encouraging the nation to bake their favourite cake for Be a Star, Bake a Cake, to raise funds for the charity.

April is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month and this year we’re hoping more people than ever will hold a bake sale and raise as much money as possible to fund much needed research, information and support services that will help save lives from bowel cancer.


Ainsley Harriott, Deliciously Ella, Eric Lanlard, Gennaro Contaldo, Gino D’Acampo, Greg Wallace, Jo Pratt, Matt Tebbutt, Nadia Sawalha, Rachel Khoo and blogger Olivia Wollenberg have all whipped up their favourite recipes for the campaign.


French pâtissier Eric Lanlard says: “I’m thrilled to support the Be a Star, Bake a Cake campaign and help raise awareness to stop bowel cancer, the UK’s second biggest cancer killer. Let’s bake and save lives this April!”


Food writer and presenter Jo Pratt says: “Baking for Bowel Cancer Awareness Month is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness and share delicious homemade treats with friends, family and colleagues. Everyone can get involved!”


Vicky Martin, Community Fundraising Manager at Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer, says: “Whether you’re a whizz in the kitchen or if baking sends you into a tiz, our celebrity chef supporters have a recipe for you.


“Test your baking skills with Eric Lanlard’s white chocolate and raspberry marquise, Matt Tebbutt’s Monmouth pudding is a family recipe passed down from generations, or if you’re after a health boost Deliciously Ella’s raw date and hazelnut brownies could be the recipe for you. Hold a cake stall, coffee morning or afternoon tea and invite your friends, family and colleagues to make a donation and sample the delicious treats.”
