Wednesday, 15th July 2015


School holidays NEARLY over...hope everyone is surviving!

For those with budding chefs at home and wanting something to do, this recipe is super easy and very adaptable!





2-3 mashed very-ripe bananas (I used thawed ones from my freezer)
0.5c oil (I used ricebran oil)
1 lightly beaten egg
1t vanilla essence
1.5c self raising flour (I used wholemeal flour and added baking powder)
0.5c sugar (I used brown sugar)
1t baking soda
1/2t cinnamon (I added a bit of nutmeg too)

Optional extras:
0.5c chopped dates
0.5c chopped walnuts

Mix everything together and bake in a loaf tin for approx 40mins at 180 degrees celsius (until a skewer inserted comes out clean)...brush with maple syrup if you like...

Super Easy Peasy Homemade Mint-Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

500ml cream
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
2t peppermint essesnce
10-15 drops green food colouring
1/2c chocolate chips (I used dark)

Whip cream until about as thick as thick greek yoghurt ( I did this in my Kitchen Aid).
Slowly incorporate the sweetened condensed milk until you get back to the same thick consistency.
Add the essence and food colouring and mix until well incorporated.
Gently fold the chocolate chips through, then transfer into an airtight container and freeze!

Variations of flavours we've already tried, tested and recommend:

Cookies and Cream - use vanilla extract and a packet of crumbled Oreos

Salted Caramel - use caramel flavoured condensed milk and salt to taste
