UPDATE

So it’s the 8th of June and I’m currently sat outside writing this in England’s, what is bound to be short period, of summer sunshine.

I want to apologise for not posting on here for the last 9-10 months. It seems that college is definitely not what I thought it was going to be. It’s very hectic and busy and if you think that you will have more time to do the things you want because you’ll only be studying 4 subjects (if you do A Levels) you are wrong. It seems that every waking moment when at college is spent either doing homework, looking at Universities or revising. This no excuse for not posting on here and it actually makes me feel quite sad that I have been unable to post in such a long time as I loved posting things on here. It’s just that my college timetable would not allow it.

But it seems that as this term is close to ending I have told myself that I am going to be doing a lot more of things that make me happy. There’s really no point in simply just surviving for education and revising in order to pass a test,  which lets face it, I’m going to forget the answers to in less than 3 hours of sitting it. Doing more of what makes me happy includes posting on here and so if I have to sacrifice some small college homework that the lecturer might not mark or I have to not attend a none compulsory meeting that I normally would have done, then I’m going to do it.

Thank you to everyone who follows me on Pinterest or Instagram as I have actually managed to keep those things updated. I am also going to start announcing on my other social media sites when I post on here so it will be easier for you guys to know.

Thanks for reading and be sure to check back here later in the week or sign up to me by Email so that you never miss a blog post,

Sunday Recipe | Banana Nut Bread.

Today I’m giving you a flawless recipe so that you can encompass your inner kitchen goddess and get baking. I recently made this cake for my Mum’s birthday a few weeks ago and I’ve been dying to make it again.

The following recipe does contain Walnuts so obviously don’t attempt this recipe if you are allergic to nuts.


Ingredients


225g Plain Flour                    Plus extra for dusting

1tsp Salt

1tsp Bicarbonate Of Soda

115g UnsaltedButter             Plus  extra for greasing

200g Caster Sugar

2 Eggs

3 Bananas                              Mashed

115g Walnuts                         Chopped

2 tbsp Milk


Preheat Your Oven to 160 degrees C/ 325 degrees F/ Gas Mark 3.

Lightly Grease and flour a 900-g/2-lb loaf tin.

Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into  a bowl and set aside.

Cream together the butter and sugar in a seperate bowl until pale and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs, beating well after each addition. Stir in the bananas, walnuts and milk until thoroughly mixed. Then add the flour mixture and stir until everything is combined.

Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin.

Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour 10 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Leave to cool in the tin for 20 minutes before turning out.


And this is the final result. This delicious and easy to make desert has certainly become a family favourite and I dare say it’ll all be gone by the end of tonight,

Hope you have a fabulous weekend,
