Gorgeously fruity traditional Irish loaf with a little twist. You can easily substitute spelt or gluten free flour for wheat flour. I've tried it with both and it's delicious. It's also a good recipe to have as a treat if you're watching your weight.

These gorgeous sweet muffins don't taste gluten free but they are! They're especially perfect for gluten free kids finding it hard to adjust. Adults love them too though! My parents aren't gluten free but they devour these! They are perfect for lunch boxes or after dinner treats. I use reusable silicone muffin cases but paper ones are just as good. After the first few times the recipe comes naturally to you and you can cut down the prep time by half.

A very light moist cake, just like a normal Victoria sponge, but wheat and gluten free! Use margarine rather than butter as it is lighter.

A beautiful moist light cake with complex and full flavours of oranges and orange zest. Super easy to make, and people love it! Serve in wedges with a mound of whipped cream or ice cream. To make this completely gluten free - use gluten free baking powder. You can find this in health shops and in larger supermarkets.

Fantastic chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has donated to TREE AID this wonderful cake. Hugh belives: "Villagers in Africa pick fruit, nuts and leaves straight from the trees around their villages-food doesn't come more local than that. It's a lifeline for them and vital that we do what we can to ensure they have enough trees for food and the many other products and benefits trees provide."

This recipe was given to me by a neighbour very many years ago. It's quick and easy and makes a very moist cake. See the footnote on how to make it gluten free.

These brownie bites are so good, you won't believe that they're vegan and gluten-free! They're chocolatey, fudgy and you just can't stop at eating one. You don't have to worry though, they're packed full of the good stuff - walnuts (omega-3 fatty acids), dates (natural sugars and fibre) and dark chocolate (flavonoids). They also require no baking!!!

For those of us who can't have gluten - try this banana bread for a treat with tea. I like to use maple syrup instead of adding so much sugar. This mixture will make 1 loaf or 24 muffins.

After a painful (yummy, but ridiculously unhealthy) amount of experimenting with different recipes I came up with this one. I think it's pretty damn good, myself. Also, it's sooo much better if you can leave these in a fridge overnight, as this makes 'em far more fudgey (ie far more YUMMY!). They go down great at school =D
