"It's a fantastic charity and this is a great way to raise money," James told The Herald.
"The things that these guys have gone through, physically as well as mentally, are terrible."
The city chef is best known for his appearances on Ready Steady Cook and Saturday Kitchen.
James is also frequently on ITV's Lorraine Show, presented by Help For Heroes patron Lorraine Kelly.
He co-owns Tanners Restaurant and the Barbican Kitchen with his fellow chef brother Chris.
They both judge the tri-service military chefs' annual competition.
James added: "Being in Plymouth we have a lot of connections with all three services. It's great to be able to help.
"I've come up with 12 recipes that you can download.
"It doesn't have to be a ten-tiered gateau. Anybody can have a go with a tray of cookies or some flapjacks."
Lorraine said: "We all want to do our bit for Help For Heroes so how about holding a cake sale? I'm going to do it, with a little help from James – and if I can do it, anyone can!"
Fundraisers will receive a Colossal Cake Sale pack including Help for Heroes wristbands, lapel pins, collecting tins, bunting, balloons and stickers.
