Last night was a strange one… Awoken at about 2am, soaking from head to toe and covered in what looked like spangly spiders. I also remember frantically searching for the light switch saying something (not sure what though) to scare the spiders away….ewwww…it makes me shiver thinking about it.
My head is possibly trying to adjust after all the assignment writing those past few months, or it could be the research methods philosophy I am trying make sense of. However, I put it down to the head and foot massage I gave Andy last night to relieve him of the stress he was swimming in due to a presentation he has to do today. Lucky Andy, he slept right though the night, which, for him, is strange. His energy must have transferred over to me during the massage, but he doesn’t seem to think that’s true. Anyway, to relieve myself of the light trauma from last nights spider hallucinations, I decided the perfect solution was to bake cakes for breakfast, just something quick, so thanks to my trustworthy banana cake recipe it saved the day 😛 well, so far…
Hot from the oven…I forgot how good they tasted…would you like one? (by the way, I know what you’re thinking, “is that all she can cook?” … it’s not honest…it’s just that they’re sooo quick to make and absolutely satisfying).
No chocolate this time, and a little less sugar too…oh yeah, and I used half and half wholemeal and plain flour…the healthier option 😛
Here you will find my yummy banana loaf recipe in the shape of little manly style cupcakes. I was going make a traditional cup cake recipe with all the frills and a variety of flavours, but I didn’t! Instead, I settled on, in my opinion, the perfect sponge. They are like mini banana loaf buns, however, this time I topped them with a chocolate & cinnamon cream cheese frosting for added naughtiness. They do look a little manlier than your usual cup cake, don’t they? So that’s who I made them for, a newly turned 30-year-old man. Welcome to my world!
