The Great British Bake off started..... ohhhh! A couple of weeks ago, I think. Love this series, the only drawback, I want to bake and bake. Fine if you have a large family to feed but there's only Paul and the dog. Does this stop me from messing up the kitchen with flour, eggs, sugar and what ever else I can fit in a bowl? Not a chance, queue photos-
Vanilla cupcakes decorated with green icing and sugar paste flowers. I placed these into clear presentation bags and shared them with my family. I couldn't have possibly eaten them all by myself. Unlike the little treats below.

|Banana Loaf Mixture|
|Banana and Sultana Loaf|
Brilliant recipe for using ripened bananas, easy and quick to make, very moist. I have also substituted the raisins for sultanas (juicier) and I have also used chocolate buttons before too. Loaf is very much a comfort food recipe, you know the type, shut the world out, put feet up with a tea/coffee in one hand and a huge slice/wedge in the other, bliss.

Pyramid Bag Update
In my previous post I announced that I would be adding some new stock to my Folksy account. After losing the battery to my camera and then the lead, I have now found both and stashed them in a safe place, the update will now take place on Thursday evening (15/09/11) at 8pm GMT.
