IMG_9106

The best way to use up bruised and old bananas is in a loaf cake! Never throw away older looking bananas again, as they give the best flavour for this recipe!

Covered in toffee sauce, this banoffee type loaf is so scrumptious perfect for all the family. I have also created my first ever baking video, so check it out! It’s not the best but I can’t wait to learn and imprive as I think videos make the steps come to life and the recipe is just easier if you can watch someone making it!

GBBO Challenge Week Ten – Ginger Biscuits

Ah, the finale! What a series it has been. As much as I have loved this season, the finale didn’t have as many exciting bakes as it usually does, especially not to the creative bakes they’ve been tested on in previous weeks.
