After a quick trip into Worthing this morning, (mainly to get blown around by the wind it seems!) and a quick stop off for some lunch (well it is a bank holiday after all....), I have spent the rest of the day making and baking.
I have had a second comissioned card to do, this time for a girls 1st birthday. I kind of knew instantly what I was going to do, the only instruction being to make it pink and sparkly. I cut out a number 1 in pink paper and decorated it with handcut butterflies, punched flowers, glitter, silver gems, and the little girls name. It was really good fun to make, and im considering offering something like this in my shop.
Once this was done, I decided to make some yummy banana bread. I like to bake, but I admit to not being the most successful baker (full marks for effort though!). I am getting better, and learning as I go.
This banana bread is really easy to make. It must be if I can do it! I found it in a Womens Weekly Cookbook - Low-Fat Meals in Minutes.
What you need:
185g self-rasing flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon margarine
1 egg, beaten lightly
1 ripe mashed banana
All you need to do is combine flour and cinnamon in a bowl, and rub in the margarine. Stir in sugar, egg, milk and banana, but just enough to mix ingredients. Then spoon into a lined loaf tin and bake in a hot oven for about 20 mins.
This recipe is given as a breakfast idea, but its almost like a cake, so perfect with a cuppa in the afternoon. Would love to know what you think if you give it a go............take care xx
