    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.

    This cake is moist and creamy. At the same time, you can taste and smell of almond and apple too. Suitable for tea time & parties.

    This old-fashioned favourite is proof that you don’t need to invent new recipes in order to eat healthily. Despite being very low in fat it has a lovely light, moist texture, thanks to the dried dates, and makes a pleasant alternative to a conventional fruited cake. It’s delightfully easy to make, and keeps well too.

    Some carrot cakes are oily and dense, but not this carrot cake! It doesn't call for oil, but butter instead. Still moist and fabulous. The cream cheese buttercream icing is superb and a must when making this gorgeous cake!

    This is a delicious moist cake which my family love. I liked the idea of almonds and apricots together so brought this recipe together. I used tinned apricots, but dried or fresh ones could also be used. To economise, I bought flaked almonds from a low cost German supermarket and ground them myself.

    Make this sweet almondy rhubarb cake when fresh rhubarb is in season. The cake is deliciously moist and benefits from an irresistible crumbly almond topping. This recipe makes two cakes so you can give one away.

    Fantastic chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has donated to TREE AID this wonderful cake. Hugh belives: "Villagers in Africa pick fruit, nuts and leaves straight from the trees around their villages-food doesn't come more local than that. It's a lifeline for them and vital that we do what we can to ensure they have enough trees for food and the many other products and benefits trees provide."
