Monday can be a dull day to get through so I baked a few things to make me smile...
Sometimes I think I just buy bananas so they go too far and I have to make them into cake! I also had strawberries so I took my usual nana loaf recipe and added a few things to mix it up.
You will need:
1 cup of wholemeal Self raising flour
1/2 cup sugar [I used brown]
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup flaked almonds [save a few to sprinkle on the top!]
pinch of bicarb of soda
1/4 cup olive oil
3 bananas [mashed]
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
A handful of strawberries, sliced.
Mix all the wet ingredients together in one bowl and all the dry ingredients in another then add wet to dry and fold in carefully.
Pour into a greased and lined loaf tin, bake for approx 45 minutes or when a skewer comes out clean. Serve with a good old fashioned cup of tea.
