Today im linking up with Kate Says Stuff for Thankful Thursday.
This week i am thankful for Recipes, and perhaps the ability to cook. Well at least bake because sadly i can’t even boil an egg!!
Dinoboy (5) has a farewell for one of his classmates that is going overseas and we were asked to bring in a small healthy plate to share with his friends today.
Being the fantastic domestic godess/mother that i am i
completely forgot whipped up some Banana bread yesterday and Dino was all excited to share with his friends.
I have found some delicious recipes for the kidlets lunch boxes over the last few months (that i may share if you ask nicely) and am now making almost everything the kids take to school. It makes me feel better as a mother to know what my children are eating.
Yes there seems like there is a decent amount butter and sugar, but at least i know exactly whats in there! and im Thankful for that.
I’m thankful that with good Recipes and the ability to bake im not spending half as much money on my shopping bill as i used to.
I spend it on shoes instead.
What are you thankful for?
Makes 10-12 slices
- 2 cups plain flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ cup caster sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/3 cup (80mL) oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- Butter and honey, to serve
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base of a loaf pan (mine is 11cm x 21cm).
Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a large bowl. Stir in the sugars. In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, oil and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients with mashed banana and fold until just combined – do not overmix.
Place in the loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack and slice thickly. Serve spread with butter and drizzled with honey.
