As ever, the recipes here were as diverse and creative as they were tempting and tasty. Further proof that sweet treats don't have to be high calorie. The chickpea cake in particular showed us you don't have to follow the rules or even add any bold flavours to make pleasing satisfying cakes.

The lesson here seems to be: be creative, think outside the tin and have fun.
