Scrumptious American-style carrot cake is a great way to get children to eat vegetables without even noticing. The creamy icing here is lighter in fat than a traditional one, as it uses ricotta cheese.

This no-guilt treat is surprising moist and has a wonderful flavour. It's also a great way to use up over-ripe bananas. For a little variation, you can add nuts or sultanas.

Delish guilt-free(ish) fruit loaf. No oil, no butter - just a bit of egg, making for almost no fat per serving. Nicely sliced and spread with - dare I say it? Butter! :)

This chocolate cake is sugar free - just be sure you use 100% cocoa powder instead of drinking chocolate mix.

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.
