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!

This is an extremely easy banana cake recipe. I always use a flat rectangular baking tray for this banana cake so it bakes through, but I bet you can use the loaf tin too and it would come out beautifully. This banana cake serves a legion of hungry flatmates and co-workers for 2 days but then you'll have to bake a new one.

These are such fabulous brownies that I'm submitting Slater's method, with a few of my own tips. No nuts, no flavourings, just a 24-carat brownie as dense and fudgy as Glastonbury mud. Whatever else you add is up to you. Serves 12 (or two with the munchies).

Be patient - this smells fantastic while it is cooking - wait until it has cooled before serving, though!
