1. Bonfire Night cake

 This is a real show off cake – and why not? It's brilliantly clever and easier to make than you think.

 

2. Marshmallow chocolate traybake

This one is pretty gooey. A rich chocolate cake with the sweetest of mallow toppings.

 

3. Walnut-topped carrot cake

Move over Bugs Bunny, 'cos we've pinched the carrots for this moist, sweet cake. 

 

4. Toffee apple pear strudel

There's no filo pastry to make with this recipe – it's a simple fill, roll and bake for a lovely crisp fruity cake that's great with cream.

 

5. Gooey choc brownies

This is a classic recipe, but you can add some nuts to give your batch added crunch.

 

6. Blueberry oaty cookies

So easy to make, these are crisp with soft sweet centres and a burst of fresh blueberries.

 

7. Cranberry, orange meringue cake

This deserves numerous outings. Make the meringues in advance and then finish on the night.

8. Mini sausage pies

Little bites of savoury brilliance... a crispy handy snack that's great for an outdoor party.

 

9. Chocolate orange freezer cookies

These are brilliant to make ahead – and, as the name suggests, great to freeze.

 

10. Little spinach and egg calzone

These neat little bites are great served warm... so wrap them in foil for a handy fireside munch.
