cooking day

Today Glen and I have been stuck in the house waiting for a little something to arrive (more on that later) so we decided to cook some delicious food from my new Sophie Dahl cookbook and watch Wimbledon ( poor Murray). I love this book, the recipes are easy, homely and healthy.

Anyhoo, heres a recipe taken from her book and a little photo of the outcome made by us, well me( i'm very bossy in the kitchen)!

Serves 6 (umm.. is it bad that we ate half of this in one afternoon?)

75g of soft butter

4 ripe bananas mashed up

200g soft brown sugar

1 egg beaten

1 tbs of vanilla extract

1ts of bicarbonate of soda

1 pinch of salt

170g of flour ( i used wholemeal, rye and pumpkin)

Preheat the oven to 180. Add the mashed bananas into a big mixing bowl. Mix in the butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Add the bicarbonate soda and salt and mix in the flour last, Pour into the prepared tim. Bake for 1 hour, remove and cool, then serve in slices with butter.
