🌈 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 🎃

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! 😋

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!
