Last week was National Baking Week and with all this talk of cakes and baking, and The Great British Bake Off on TV, I knew I had to do something.
I do love baking, but I don’t have the time to do it well. I need uncomplicated, tried and tested recipes that I know will turn out well, even if a few short cuts (electric whisks!) are introduced.
It also doesn’t help that my Mum makes THE best cakes. She puts this down to having a Gas and not Electric oven, which may be true, but as we have the latter, I can’t really argue.
And so on to my choice of cake.
It was Son’s Christening yesterday so I needed a sharing type cake, and I have a friend who can’t eat Citrus… Florence Finds Banana Bread it was!
Such a simple recipe, we had bananas available from our Abel & Cole delivery earlier in the week, and that’s it. Followed to the letter, except my cake took 1.5 hours in the oven, it was delicious.
My citrus-evading friend also described it as a ‘Hug in a Cake’ as it reminded her of the Banana Bread her Gran used to make.
Pleasure all round!
If you’d like to try it yourself, the recipe’s here…
