Sundays are perfect for baking

One of my favourite things to do is bake. I used to love spending Sunday afternoons in the kitchen with my mum and sister baking lots of different treats and then eating them all in one go. I can’t remember the last time I spent the day baking, so I got all of my baking supplies out of the cupboard and put my apron on.                               

Banana Bread 

I followed a BBC good food recipe (link in the title) to make the perfect banana bread. 

the ingredients you will need: 

140g butter, softened.                                                140g caster sugar                                                                  2 eggs                                                                                  140g self-raising flour                                                  1tsp baking powder                                                                             2 very ripe bananas, mashed

method: 

1. Heat the oven to 180c/160c fan. 
2. Butter a non stick loaf tin.                           3. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then slowly add the eggs with a little flour. Fold in the remaining flour, baking powder and bananas.                         4. Pour into the tin and bake for about 30 mins until a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool and then drizzle some icing on the top. 


this is the perfect recipe for using up over ripe bananas 

Mary Berry’s Chocolate Fork Biscuits

I got this recipe from Tanya Bakes by Tanya Burr, if you haven’t got her baking book then you definitely need it! 

Fork biscuits are so so so easy to make and take very little time too. 

the ingredients you will need: 

100g unsalted butter, softened                        50g caster sugar.                                                    150g self raising flour.                                       25g cocoa powder 

method: 

1. Preheat the oven to 180c                              2. Cream together the butter and sugar until light a fluffy.                                               3. Add the flour and cocoa powder until well combined.                                                        4. Roll the dough into small balls and then transfer onto a lined baking tray and press down with a fork to make the fork biscuit (it makes it easier if you wet the fork first so it doesn’t stick).                                                       5. Bake your biscuits for 10-12 minutes until perfectly baked.
