What more could you ask for, after a day at work, than to come home to a slice of cake and a cup of coffee!
My Boy has been taking part in his school’s Year 10 Work Experience Programme. He’s had an amazing time working at our local League One football club.
Going to school is a chore for My Boy – he likes to meet his friends and ‘hang out’ with them at lunch time but he does NOT, no way, enjoy sitting in a classroom and writing. He is capable, but disinterested, in his GCSEs (just awarded an A for French speaking, 1 mark off an A* - with half an hour revision the night before the test!).
It has been like a breath of fresh air in our house over the last two weeks. He has been waking up with the lark and getting ready for work without constant nagging. No squabbles over homework =
Yesterday he had the day off (electrical work at the football ground).
Staying with Grandma for the day, they decided to bake, bake, bake!!I am sorry I didn’t take a photo of the cake before we sliced it, but believe me that was the last thing on my mind. Admittedly this isn’t a ‘pretty’ cake but what it lacks in the looks department it certainly makes up for in taste!
The recipe is from Tesco, but I wanted to record it on my blog as I am likely to misplace it!!
BANOFFEE FUDGE LOAF
5oz softened, salted butter, 10oz plain flour, 6oz light muscovado sugar, 2 lightly beaten eggs, 1tsp bicarb of soda, 5fl oz semi-skimmed milk, 3 medium, ripe bananas and 3oz vanilla fudge.
1 pre-heat oven to 160c. Lightly butter and flour a 2pt loaf tin.
2 Beat butter and sugar for 5 mins. Gradually add eggs, beating all the time. Sift in the flour and bicarb then gradually add the milk until smooth.
3 Fold the mashed bananas into the mixture with the chopped fudge. Spoon mixture into into the loaf tin.
4 After 30 mins take the tin out of the oven and cover with foil then return to the oven for a further 30 mins.
5 Remove from oven and leave in tin for 10 mins to cool.
Serve warm or cold.
Thank you My Boy – I am one very happy mummy!
Take Care xx
