    This low fat carrot banana cake or loaf combines two of my favourites: carrot cake and banana bread. This isn't as sweet and decadent as a carrot cake, and calls for far less oil or butter, making it nice for a breakfast treat or for afternoon snacking. Enjoy sliced with a cuppa.

    This is a foolproof recipe for the best tasting carrot cake ever! It's moist, tender and oh-so-delicious. The cream cheese icing is really the icing on the cake. It's especially good for special occasions, such as birthdays. You can also use this recipe to make cupcakes or muffins, simply adjust the baking time accordingly.

    Fresh dark cherries are cooked gently in butter, then scattered over an olive oil-based sponge and baked until golden on top and oozing with juice. A delicious dessert that the whole family will love!

    The most important ingredient in this cake is a beautiful, large, organic, unwaxed orange. And really good extra virgin olive oil. The recipe was given to me by my friend Aziza, who got it from her aunt. It is simple to make but absolutely heavenly.

    This fruity cake goes exceedingly well with sweet wine. Zante grapes are stirred into the cake mixture, then a few are scattered on the top before being baked to perfection.

    This is a simple cake with many uses. It is a perfect tea time treat and also good for a sweet quick dunk in morning coffee. If it lasts for more than 3 days, you can recycle it as a pudding by soaking it in with a red fruit compote and topping it with whipped cream. Use the yoghurt container as a measuring unit.

    With just a touch of sweetness, this olive oil cake has a hint of orange zest and five-spice powder. If you don't eat it all the first day, cut it into cubes and layer with whipped cream and oranges, or toast and slather with honey.
