Our young gorgeous chickens, who are still ravenous and romping around the yard eating us out of house and home, had to start earning their keep ... eventually,.
Well now they have...and here are the results..
Gorgeous aren't they?
Banana cake this week, two of them. One for Mont to take to "The Doon"
...and one for home
But it's these little beauties that always make me smile
So, Millie....here's a recipe for my banana cake, which includes our gorgeous googies..
Cream butter and sugar together, add eggs (I used three) one at a time and beat well in between each one
Add mashed bananas, (I used 5 for 2 cakes) If the batter curdles a little, add a teaspoon of flour
Then add flour and mix together. I used about half plain flour and half self raising flour. Maybe a cup of each
Add a teaspoon of bi-carb soda to a splash of milk and a large dollop of yogurt. mix until it doubles in froths a bit and expands, then add to the cake batter. Mix through then put into prepared baking tins and back at 160-180, depending on your oven, for about 40 minutes
I can't be any more specific than that with the quantities because I've been making this cake for as long as I can remember and I just go by "feel".
