Banana and Maple Syrup Loaf Cake

Banana

Between Lowen, Rory and their friends who were round to play, this Banana and Maple Syrup Loaf Cake was gone in one afternoon. Notice that I've use Maple Syrup AGAIN! I can't get enough of the stuff and have been putting it in and on everything I possibly can in the last few weeks.

I had some samples of Clarkes Maple Syrup sent to me a while ago and for this cake I used their vanilla maple syrup. It gave the cake a wonderful depth of flavour but ordinary maple syrup would be fine ...or even golden syrup. You could also add in a handful of chocolate chips or some nuts too but my kids like it plain so I left it without any extra adornments.

This turned out to be the perfect baked treat for a sunny half term afternoon in the garden, with a cold glass of milk alongside. Yum was the verdict from the kids.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
