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!)

Perfect for chocolate lovers! Great for entertaining, deceptively easy to make. Perfect for people who can't have gluten. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream, or simply dusted with icing sugar. I flour the cake tin using cocoa powder so it won't leave white marks on the cake and keeps it totally gluten free. You can make an icing for the top or pour over melted chocolate.

This is a really simple brownie recipe. It has been tried and tested many a time and they certainly don't last very long in the cupboard. I always use chocolate chunks when I bake them, however walnuts are just as good, it is just a family preference. These morish gooey chocolate treats are an all-year all-occasion must bake.

My parents own a traditionally-run sheep farm in the Falkland Islands. Cruise ship tourists come to visit and enjoy the experience. I cook this chocolate cake for my mum to serve to her visitors. It's simple and delicious and was given to me by my friend's mum because my son is allergic to egg.

I'm a sucker for lemon and coconut so this cake is perfection to me! It's more of a tea cake than a dessert cake.
