🌈 and 🍌


Sunday 25th October to Wednesday 4th November

A Sunday afternoon visit to Rousham House, well actually the gardens.

We got a bit wet, but the sun came out too which gave a good photo opportunity 🌈

It was really quite pretty, it would be nice to go back in the Summer too when everything is in full bloom.

Happy Halloween πŸŽƒ

For those of you that don’t know, this is Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager ⚽️

I made a Banana and Walnut loaf and surprisingly it turned out really quite well! πŸ˜‹

Here’s the recipe.

Ingredients: 100g softened butter, 140g caster sugar, 1 beaten egg, 225g plain flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 4 very ripe bananas, 85g chopped walnuts.

Step 1: Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Grease a 2lb loaf tin with some butter and line the base with baking parchment, then grease this as well.

Step 2: In a large bowl, mix together the butter, sugar and egg, then slowly mix in flour and baking powder. Peel, then mash the bananas. Now mix everything together, including the nuts.

Step 3: Pour your mixture into the tin and bake for 1 hour, or until a skewer comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool on a wire rack before removing from the loaf tin.

The loaf can now be wrapped tightly in cling film and kept for up to 2 days, or frozen for up to 1 month. If so defrost and warm through before serving.

You can serve in thick slices topped with vanilla ice cream.

But I just like to have mine as it comes with a nice cup of tea!
