Carrot cake is a favourite amongst friends and family and is always requested for birthday cakes. This cake is simple yet satisfying and best served with cream cheese icing. To make a double layer cake (pictured below) just times the recipe by 1.5 and use 2 x 23cm cake tins.
These puddings look like little cakes but as soon as you break into them a delicious liquid chocolate filling oozes out. You can either turn them out onto small plates or leave them in a cute teacup to serve.
Red velvet is like a red chocolate sponge. It looks striking when you cut a slice with the different layers of white and red. There are lots of ways to decorate a red velvet cake depending on your theme.
There is a little story behind these brownies. A great friend of mine, Izaak is reknown for his rich melt in your mouth brownies. I have been unable to twist his arm (yet) to get his version but this one is pretty close. It is rich, smooth and absolute heaven. You can opt to leave the chocolate chunks out if you wish, the brownie works either way.
This recipe is a bit of a favourite in my family. It is super easy to make and the crunchy combination of the breadcrumbs and bacon really adds to the dish. Usually I serve this with new potatoes and a green salad.
