Happy Wednesday!

I have fallen in love. Help me!

I need this in my life. Pretty damn soon.

It costs the same as my car insurance for a whole year, but LOOK HOW PRETTY!!

I think the dimensions (Height 10.5 x length 19 x depth 4cm), would be big enough for me to use as a clutch on a night out, which makes me want it even more!

I need to stay away from Selfridges for my own good!

Banana & Bread

IMG_0312

Literally two of my favourite things in the whole world, so it’s only natural that when combined together, it’s heavenly!

I’ve been making¬†this banana bread for around 3 years & it still remains a firm family favourite!

There’s nothing better on a cold evening to snuggle up with a warm slice! Or have it cold in Summer, served with your favourite ice-cream!

Here’s the recipe! Why don’t you have a go at making your own batch? I’m off to do mine now!

Ingredients 

IMG_9974

125g Butter

150g Caster Sugar

1 tea spoon of vanilla extract

1 egg

2 – 3 ripe bananas (the riper the better)

190g self raising flour

60ml milk

1 teaspoon of cinnamon (my secret ingredient!)

To be more creative, why not throw in a few blueberries!

Method:

Grease your loaf tin

Mash up your ripe bananas

Melt the butter, sugar & vanilla in a saucepan over a medium heat, until melted

Remove from the heat & add to the mashed bananas

Add the egg and mix well

Stir in the flour and the milk

Add your cinnamon to the mixture

Pour your mixture into the loaf tin

Bake at 150c / Gas Mark 3 -4 for 40 – 60 minutes.

Leave to cool & slice (or save all for yourself!)
