This is the simplest cake I've ever made. Great to make with the kids, especially if you use it for buns or fairycakes. I'll leave it up to you to ice or serve with fresh cream and strawberries.

A two in one cupcake recipe that'll please everyone! Make chocolate cupcakes and vanilla cupcakes from the same batch. Less washing up, less effort - but still delicious!

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!)

This recipe is one of my own and I think it's nice, just hoped someone else will like it as well.

Use black bananas. In fact, if they turn black, put bananas into freezers to keep for when you're ready to prepare. Once defrosted they will be pulp like and mix into cake batter much more easily giving you a cooked consistency like mud cake. Sometimes requires a little extra time in the oven. Don't panic - just keep testing with a tester and take out when ready. Can be iced with a chocolate ganache. Is delicious once cooled but the flavour really kicks in after 24 hours.
