Saturday: Chloë Bakes

I'm excited to announce that I'm going to be starting a regular feature here on the blog - every Saturday will be baking day and I'll be posting a different recipe every week! It might be for a cake, a pie or a pudding but all the recipes will be baked goods packed with delicious, seasonal ingredients and will have been tried and tested by me! Some of the recipes will be my own, some will be borrowed from friends and family and some will be by other cooks that I love and have become a regular part of my repertoire.

I'll tweet the ingredients list mid-week to give you plenty of time to get stocked up ready!

This Saturday I'll be kicking things off with my Mum's amazing Walnut and Banana Bread recipe. I love banana bread - so quick and simple to make but packed with delicious fruit. It's so versatile too - you can vary the recipe endlessly. Just think if you cook along with me this Saturday, on Sunday morning you'll find yourself propped up in bed with a pot of coffee beside you tucking into a slice of toasted Banana Bread smothered with butter (and maybe honey too if it's a particularly rainy and miserable day).

These quantities are based on using a 9 inch loaf tin. Don't worry if you've only got a smaller tin, I'll show you how to reduce the quantities accordingly.

You will need...

125g Butter
175g Caster Sugar
2 Large Eggs
2-3 Large Bananas
60g - 90g Walnuts
250g Plain flour

Plus some baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt, cinnamon and mixed spice.

Meet me back here on Saturday for the recipe!
