This morning we saw my fabulous Sister in Law leave to go home back home to the States :( We had such a lovely time while she visited and the girls adored having her here. She had to leave early for her flight so for a quick and easy breakfast I made a 'bung it in' banana bread last night (she is a self confessed fan of banana bread). It's literally a blend and mix recipe, where you really don't have to be accurate at all, a little more or less liquid or flour really won't hurt. It tastes amazing served warm with some coconut oil or organic butter and a great breakfast recipe to make the night before if you're up and about early the next day. Enjoy :)
Oooh- another cool thing, I've been nominated for a Liebster award from Emma over at Food, Fork and Good! How exciting is that? It seems to be my lucky week with awards :) I'm honoured to have been nominated by Emma as she is a fabulous blogger, I truly enjoy reading her blog as it always makes me smile, so thanks a million!
A quick google of this award seems to be that it is a bit of a mystery as to how it originated, very cool, and very weird! But, the rules are pretty simple and are as follows.....
1. Thank your nominator (and link back!).
2. Nominate 5 other blogs, with less than 200 followers and post a comment on each blog letting them know they have been given the award.
3. Copy and paste the award onto your blog.
And that's it! Pretty simple, pretty fun, and again I get to nominate some super cool folks for the award!
My nominees are (in no particular order):
Easy peasy banana bread
2 1/2 cups of whole spelt flour (or regular wholemeal flour)
1 heaped tsp of bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp fine sea salt
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup of currants
1 cup of milk of choice
Juice of half a lemon
2 flax eggs (2 tbsp ground flax and 6 tbsp water)
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp sugar and alcohol free vanilla extract
Add the flour, bicarb, salt, cinnamon and currants to a large bowl and stir. No need to sift or be delicate!
Add the remainder of the ingredients to a food processor or blender and blitz till smooth (ish)
Tip the wet mix to the dry and stir to combine.
Pour into a greased loaf tin and bake for around 40mins, until a cocktail stick comes out clean when it is inserted in the middle.
Tip onto a rack and leave to cool slightly before serving!
