Delightful Pineapple and Coconut Cake Recipe

This cake is easy, super-moist and requires only 1 bowl.

So what are you waiting for?

It’s the perfect cake and only takes a handful of minutes to prepare. It’s also very yummy and delightful to eat, plus it has zero butter in it! I’ve made mine with fresh pineapple because that’s what I had in the fridge, but it can easily be adapted to frozen raspberries or nectarines as well.

Beetroot and Chocolate Cake Recipe

Guilt-Free Chocolate and Beetroot Cake with All Natural Red Colouring

A moist chocolate cake recipe that doesn’t use butter? It’s yours for the making…

I still have plenty of beetroot growing in my garden, but I’m not complaining. It’s delicious and nutritious – even in cake! I’ve been meaning to try a chocolate and beetroot cake recipe for some time now. And I’m mighty glad I did. The grated beetroot adds moisture and some sweetness to the cake, and the kids don’t even notice that it’s in there.

I’ve added a chocolate icing to my cake, but another idea is to think of this cake as a Red Velvet style cake ( with all natural red colouring!) and use cream cheese frosting.

Strawberry Cake Recipe

My Great-Grandmother’s Scrumptious Sponge Cake

A cake that is light, feathery and filled with scrumptious strawberries and cream.

Let’s celebrate!

This recipe has been passed down from my Great Grandmother to my Grandpa, to my Mum and to me. I hold fond memories of it in my heart.  It’s important to keep these recipes being passed down through the generations – they are part of my family and who I am.

This sponge cake is feather-light and is beautiful in its simplicity. My Mum usually made this for our birthday cakes whilst we were growing up, and I know why. It’s a celebration cake!

So when my youngest son turned 6months old recently this was the cake recipe I turned to.

Dreamy Banana and Coconut Bread is Perfect for Taking To Work

Moist, dense banana bread

You know the stuff  – it’s in every cafe and it looks like it’s here to stay. With good reason. Banana bread can be toasted and buttered, eaten plain or even eaten with jam and cream. It’s a fantastic way to use up those old, over-ripe bananas sitting in your fruit bowl. It’s perfect for taking to work, or sending to school in your child’s lunchbox.

This recipe has the added bonus of coconut, making it both sweet and moist. Plus you really only need 1 bowl to make it!

What are you waiting for?

Save yourself from spending $$$ for one slice at your local cafe, and get baking.
