This Sh*t is Banana Cake, B-A-N-A-N-A-Cake!

Sorry, couldn’t resist the song! So catchy and is the only thing that has helped me learn how to spell bananas.

Banana Loaf is a bit of a cross between Banana Bread and drizzle cake. It is traditionally baked in a bread loaf tin, however the actual mixture is sweet and cakey. It is stodgy and moist which is perfect for the winter! It may not be the prettiest cake or get you many Instagram likes, but it is so delicious, easy to make, and goes perfectly with custard.

Ingredients

  • 140g room temperature butter

 

  • 150g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50g icing sugar

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Cream together the butter and sugar using an electric whisk.IMG_7068.jpg
  2. Add the two eggs, baking powder, mashed bananas and sift in the flour. Fold everything together until smooth.

3. Pour the mix into the loaf tin and cook for 45 mins or until a skewer comes out clean when poked inside. Mix together the 50g of icing sugar with 2-3tsp water and drizzle on top. Then serve!

What did I say? So simple to make! I know it isn’t the prettiest cake in the world but it’s so soft and moist and a favourite amongst the family! Let me know what you think in the comments below and let me know if there are any recipes you would like me to share!

You Can’t Curry Love – Low Calorie Butter Chicken

Mmm… butter chicken. This recipe is a low calorie butter chicken curry- guilt free and delicious! Who can ask for more from a fakeaway? I made this last week when I had my granny over from France as she is trying to lose weight and she adored it! Curry is a great dish to make when you have a whole load of people eating at different times as they can just serve themselves when they feel hungry/have time to eat. Tuesday nights are exceptionally busy for us as Dad has his running club and Mum has her ‘All Stars fitness’ group, so they can’t all eat at the same time.

Ingredients (serves 5-6):

6 chicken breasts

2 tins chopped tomatoes

1 tbsp garlic paste

1 tin drained chickpeas

1 diced onion

1 chopped red pepper

1 chopped chilli

6 chopped tomatoes

6 tbsp fat free Greek yoghurt

1tsp Paprika, Garam Masala, turmeric, cumin, chilli powder

Fresh coriander

6 cups of rice

Method:

1. Chop up the chicken into little chunks and pop them in the slow cooker. Also put in your chopped onion, chopped carrot, seasonings, chopped pepper, diced tomatoes, Greek yoghurt and chopped chilli.

2. Chop up the fresh coriander and add, leave a little left for garnishing.

3. Put the slow cooker on high for 3 hours or low for 6.

4. Serve with rice and garnish with coriander!

Perfectly easy and not too spicy (for the wusses out there). Play around with the seasonings and add more/less to get the desired taste. I hope you enjoy!
