Sonia Chandsure's coconut, apricot and almond barfi (pictured above)

'Barfi is an Indian sweet made with condensed milk and sugar, and it's a great treat on special occasions or with afternoon tea. This is my twist on my nan's coconut barfi and it makes a perfect gift.'

Helen O'Brien's quick vanilla strawberry cupcakes

'These disappear within minutes whenever I make them. Everyone loves the home-made jam surprise in the centre.'
