Wednesdays can be tough right? Even when you think about all that Hump Day happiness there is still the other half of the week to go. So I thought we’d cheer things up with cake!
Sometimes it must seem like all I do is bake cakes and cookies. But then sometimes it must seem that I’m chipper all the time and we all know if that were true it would be extremely annoying! I cook lots of healthy savoury stuff too, but it’s not as much fun to write about y’know!?
So how do you make this yummy looking banana bread?
(Himself may have built me a lightbox but he hasn’t shown me how to use it yet so all my photos are still brown from my stupid brown kitchen)
Peel and mash 1lb (450g) of very ripe bananas (I’m lazy, I do this in the food processor) and mix them in a bowl along with a tablespoon of golden or maple syrup, 4floz (125ml) sunflower or vegetable oil, 2oz (50g) ground almonds and 2oz (50g) of raisins/sultanas/chopped dates/mixed dried fruit.
Sieve 8oz (225g) self raising flour into the mix and stir it all up.
Put the mix in a greased and lined loaf tin and bake at 180*c/350*F/Gas Mark 4 for one hour. When it’s cooked let it cool on a wire rack.
Nom nom nom.
Once cool, slice it up and spread the slices with a little bit of butter (well vegan margarine) if you’re feeling decadent. I had two slices for breakfast with a Green Monster !
And because I had cake for breakfast, I had breakfast for supper last night. True story
