Pecans add a lovely crunch to this delcious carrot cake but feel free to leave them out if you don't like nuts. The cream cheese icing is what takes this classic carrot cake to the next level!

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.

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.

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.

A very light moist cake, just like a normal Victoria sponge, but wheat and gluten free! Use margarine rather than butter as it is lighter.
