I should be painting, but our smallest boy decided that a short sleep was the order of the day today and whilst I might dabble a little in a while, I thought I would put together a blogpost and keep to my “schedule” (yay!!)
A friend of mine (she was actually my lovely midwife for our last two children) had her third baby recently and so I decided to make some lasagne (when I had my babies and someone would make dinner for us, I was always so grateful) and, because I had several bananas past their prime thanks to one bite taken from each of them, (James!! I’m looking at you kid!) I also decided to make a chocolate-banana cake, taken, if I remember correctly, from a Clodagh McKenna recipe (I actually had enough bananas for three cakes. And we have so much chocolate in the house right now thanks to Christmas feasting)
I love the chocolate-banana combo, and warm from the oven, this is an outstandingly tasty, moist cake. I made it with spelt flour too, in order to feel a bit virtuous and to cancel out those naughty chocolate bits (tut tut and all that)
Chocolate and Banana Bread
This sounds yum, yum, yum 😀 I WILL try it, because I love the delusions of it being healthy, considering it does have bananas in it, right?!! On another thought, how is it possible to have chocolate left lying around? I thought that’s what Christmas is for, total feasting?!! (ok maybe that’s just the thinking in my house!?! 😉 )
Yum! What sort of chocolate did you use? Just ordinary milk cooking chocolate? Only getting back to baking after ages and can’t wait to try this…………But the baking powder is a year out of date, to the shop first!
Yes, just milk choc, I used whatever I could find… Half eaten chocolate Santas etc!!
Not the tiniest bit of Christmas chocolate left in this house but I made this bread today and it is delicious!
Oh great, hope this is the start of a Baking 2013 🙂
