a month of love....

ok as promised here is the banana bread recipe... it's taken from the gorgeous cookbook "apples for jam" by tessa kiros.

i have altered the recipe slightly as i found it a little dense the first time i made it and prefer to add less sugar

100g butter
1/2 cup sugar
3 or 4 medium ripe bananas
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups flour
2 heaped tsp baking powder
4 tbsp warm milk

preheat oven to 180C
grease and line a loaf pan
i made it all in my food processor:
cream butter and sugar first
then add bananas and blend well
then add all the other ingredients and mix slowly until completely incorporated
pour into loaf tin and bake

it's ready when you insert a skewer and it comes out clean
let cool a little and then indulge with a cup of tea or coffee

reason #17: because today he did the grocery shopping AND took the girls with him leaving me with 2.5hrs of me time!!
reason #18: he loves nature and marvells in the miracle that is life and living

hope you're all having a fabulous weekend xxx
