    The easiest banana cake to make, just right for using up those very ripe bananas in the fruit bowl! I make this one in a loaf tin then you can cut slices and butter them for an after school treat.

    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 great carrot cake recipe that is easy to make. It calls for self-raising flour, carrots, walnuts and cinnamon - no other spices, pineapple, raisins, etc. The Cream cheese icing is also easy to make and really delicious. Feel free to reduce the amount of sugar in the cake if you prefer your cakes less sweet.

    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!)
