Earlier this week Rosalie and I got our bake on, using up a couple of bananas that were way past their best, to make Mary Berry’s Banana Loaf.
Rosalie has ‘helped’ me with my baking in the past – I mean, she’s held a spoon in a halfhearted attempt to stir the Christmas Cake mix – but she wasn’t really old enough to understand. But this time I put on her apron and got her up on a chair so she was right in the middle of the action. She loved the scales, seeing the numbers change and trying to spoon flour was a most serious task.
The cake came out of its tin really well, and smelled amazing. For now it has gone into the freezer, so I will have to update you when we eat it as to whether is passes the taste test!
