Baking, Banana loaf ...and the fatty within.

I love baking, though until fairly recently I had been using a microwave oven combi thingamabob that left my cakes somewhat flat. After pulling out many a hair, I finally realised the problem might not actually be me, and treated myself to a new electric double oven (with gas hob because I can't be doing with cooking on electric rings.) Since then my cakes have risen and so has my confidence!

Whilst still in shite-oven mode, my nemesis was banana loaf cake; with every attempt, my dutiful husband chewing down the latest lump of godawful raw banana brick. Well, I would like to share with you a "TA-DA!" Moment!:

It is sensational. Crazy as it sounds, I feel amazing. The only thing I need to do battle with now is the fat person threatening to reveal herself if I continue with this success...

...every silver lining has it's cloud!

Next recipe to try? Lemon & Blueberry Madaleines! I've ordered the baking tin, I'll let you know how it goes!
