Tea and cake Tuesday

I know that I haven’t done one of these for a while but I didn’t feel like I had anything worth sharing.  I wanted this to be a chance to share my cake creations.

So I baked some very yummy cinnamon swirl buns the other day. I found the recipe here at Live Craft Eat.
I was very impressed with how they turned out (especially as I’m not very good at reading the recipe before doing anything and managed to mess it up).

My favourite cake is Banana cake, my mum’s banana cake. As i have been travelling the furthest reaches of the globe for the last 2 and a half years this is the one thing i have missed most. I could buy it from the shop but that just isn’t the same. So now we are living in a house with an oven. The hostels i have been living in don’t have working ovens or ovens at all in some cases. I thought now is the time to branch out and try some baking. Banana cake cake to be precise.

So onto pinterest i went to find a recipe for banana cake, one that would be as good as my mum’s. Then off to the shops to buy all the ingredients. I stuck to using the rest of the English chocolate that we brought back from the UK, as choc chips.

These were amazing (if i do say so myself)! Just as good as my mum’s and worth all the effort. I will be using  This recipe again as the base for all my cakes. Off to pop on the kettle to enjoy a brew and some cake.
