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.

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.

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.

Perfect for summer, this quick and easy cheesecake is delicious and doesn't require the oven. The crumbly base is a mix of digestive biscuits and shortbread.
