My family don’t read my blog; they’re not remotely interested and think blogging is simply another of my eccentricities. I didn’t tell them about the acupuncture, so it will be interesting – now that I am entering day three of not smoking – to see when they notice. Because I always went outside to have a cigarette, it may well take them some time. Still, I am rather peeved …
Original Bunn may be forgiven though; she’s been preoccupied with the pool party she threw yesterday. I ought to be grateful that her party kept me busy with the food preparation for much of the morning. Muffins, strawberry cake, chicken pies, date & honey cartwheels … I just kept churning things out of my oven.
The heat lately has been such that a bunch of bananas don’t make it home from the shops before turning brown and the only thing to do with them is bake. I have a fail-proof recipe for these.
5 minute banana muffins
Smash up 5 bananas in a mixing bowl, add 1 egg and beat lightly.
Add a ½ cup of melted butter and ½ cup of white sugar and beat.
Add 2 cups flour, 1 tsp bicarb, 1 tsp baking powder and a pinch of salt.
Mix and divide into a 12 muffin baking tray.
Bake at 180C for 20 minutes.
