    The easiest banana cake to make, just right for using up those very ripe bananas in the fruit bowl! I make this one in a loaf tin then you can cut slices and butter them for an after school treat.

    A very simple microwave sponge pudding in less than 15 minutes with a texture between a sponge and a steamed pudding. Flavour it by adding raspberry jam, treacle or golden syrup to the bottom of the final bowl. Serve hot with custard.

    This is a great carrot cake recipe that is easy to make. It calls for self-raising flour, carrots, walnuts and cinnamon - no other spices, pineapple, raisins, etc. The Cream cheese icing is also easy to make and really delicious. Feel free to reduce the amount of sugar in the cake if you prefer your cakes less sweet.

    This is the best vanilla sponge mix I have ever made or tasted and is so easy to make. The key to it is how long you whisk it for and the baking time. You can use the recipe to make 1 whole sponge cake. Just lengthen the cooking time to around 25 to 30 minutes (although the trick is to judge by sight and bounce!)

    This recipe was passed down to me from my mum. It produces a rich, chocolaty cheesecake perfect for all cheesecake and chocolate lovers alike! Taste a little to ensure that the right amount of chocolate-ness has been reached. If you like cheesecakes a little more chocolaty then you may need to add a little more cocoa powder/water mix to taste.

    A wonderfully moist chocolate cake recipe that is easy to make. Turn this into a favourite birthday or celebration cake by making it in two 23cm (9 in) cake tins instead of one large one, and layering with chocolate buttercream. Adjust the baking time if making into two cakes.
