Vanilla Marshmallows

Hi again! Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. Yesterday I decided to make marshmallows. They came out super fluffy and tasty, so much better than shop bought!

If anyone knows me, they will know the amount of disasters that have occurred for me in the kitchen sometimes, marshmallows being one of those times… so I was pretty nervous about making them. The last time I tried I didn’t have a sugar thermometer or an electric mix which is the fist big red flag of ‘DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS.’

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!

GBBO Challenge Week Eight – Forgotten Bakes – SAVOY!

What the **** is a savoy cake? Anyone else feel the same way? I hope so, because this week I was left completely flabbergasted at some of the things being made, which is why I think they named it forgotten bakes…

This weeks recipe is taken from Kate’s Pecan Savoy Cake, which was actually enormous on the show, but the recipe cuts it down to one simple sponge. However, I didn’t bother with the chocolate decoration, I stuck to a simple coating of icing sugar and fresh berries (and then ate it with a pool of custard!!)
