Sue Wynne, from Glasson Dock, Lancaster, impressed celebrity chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli and the other judges from Flora Cuisine with her banana fudge cake recipe because of its ‘originality, ease of preparation, taste and 

Married grandmother-of-10 Sue said: “The cake 
recipe is one that I cook for my 
grandchildren when they come to stay.

“I have loved baking from being a very small child and have taught all my children and grandchildren to bake from an early age.

“One of my grandsons is rather picky and doesn’t eat fruit and so we often make 
banana cakes together in order to get some fruit into his diet.”

Hundreds of recipes from mums and dads up and down the country were submitted to the competition’s Facebook pages which were then whittled down to 30 winning recipes to appear in the ‘Let’s Get 
Cooking’ recipe book.

And Sue’s cake looks set to become a family favourite with more than just her own grandchildren.

The former catering teacher said: “The cake is always really popular and never lasts longer than a few hours.

“I was out with my 
granddaughter when I got the phone call to say I’d been chosen, I’d sent in a few recipes so I couldn’t really remember which one it was.”

French celebrity chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, who judged the event, said: “It was a privilege to judge this nationwide competition, and see first hand just how much 
cooking talent and skill there is out there.

“Sue’s Banana Fudge Cake was utterly delicious.”
