1 Carrot Cake

There are lots of variations on this theme, some with cream cheese icing and some without. My own preference is to leave off the icing, but I’ve found a recipe with it, so you can please yourself.

2 Banana Cake

My mum has a great recipe for banana bread. I could eat huge wedges of this fantastic cake. It’s not too sweet, but very satisfying.

3 Ginger Cake

A classic cake, and for a very good reason – it’s just so tasty. I once tried an egg-less recipe and it worked beautifully. So here’s a recipe for vegans or people with allergies.

4 Chocolate Fudge Cake

Choco heaven! Indulgent, calorific and divine. Dive in!

5 Blueberry Muffins

I just can’t decide whether I prefer these or double choc chip, but since I’ve already included a chocolate recipe, here is the blueberry version.

6 Grand Marnier Cheesecake

This is the favorite of a friend of mine, and no wonder. Look at the picture of this glorious cheesecake and drool.

7 Tiffin.

You don’t even need to bake this cake! How easy can it be. I leave out the raisins, horrible things.

Are you inspired to get baking? What are your favorite cakes?
