    You'll never need to buy the canned rice pudding at the stores after trying this easy eggless version made over the stove. It tastes creamy, with soft grains of rice, like a traditional baked pudding.

    A lovely dairy free moist fruit cake that my grandma taught me, with dried fruit, crushed pineapple, and glace cherries.

    The bananas need to be very ripe for this recipe. The frozen yoghurt turned out very nice, I liked the tangy flavour of the yoghurt with the sweetness of the roasted bananas. I saved a banana and added in the last minute before turning the machine off. I did this because I like chunks of fruit in my ice cream or frozen yoghurt. You can skip this step and just add all the banana at once.

    I usually use ripe peaches and lightly sugared berries, but any variation will work! Serve warm with ice cream, custard or whipped cream.

    Aromatic ginger and tangy orange liven up this warm, fruity dish with its crisp, oaty topping. And it is just as delicious served chilled.

    Serve this fruity tart, with its soft, gooey topping, soon after it is baked so that the juices do not make the crust soggy.

    This was my attempt to make brownies lower in fat. I think you'll agree that they are just as gooey and indulgent as regular brownies. The puréed prunes keep them moist and dark in colour.
