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.

These cupcakes are very rich in chocolate and are, in addition, topped with whipped cream and grated chocolate! Since the cupcakes are so rich, the whipped cream is a welcome change from the heavy icing you normally find on cupcakes.

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 a recipe I have known since I was a child and is a great one to rustle up if you are in need of a quick chocolate fix as it comes out as a chocolate sponge cake with a delicious choc sauce hidden at the bottom. Great with icecream!

This is a super-easy cake to make. Dried fruit is soaked in orange juice, then blended with self-raising flour and mixed spice before being baked. It's perfect for Christmas or any other time of the year.
