Banana Bread and a cup of tea

My new tea pot
Pickle-Lily and I have been enjoying The Great British Bake-off over the past two weeks and have already decide on who should stay and who should go. I usually watch it with a lovely cup of tea from my new funky tea pot that I found in a local charity shop and a slice of something ...
Banana Bread


One of our family favourites is banana bread or cake. This is great at using up any over-ripe bananas if you have them and very easy to bake. Whenever I make this, it is usually eaten warm from the oven spread with butter, but I do believe it is just as good cold (it never really lasts that long!). The recipe is on the Bakes ... page.

I've just remembered I need to send you all to Wendy's Handmade Monday page to read all the other blogs!

That looks really nice! I've made something similar with (believe it or not) courgettes. I've had a glut of them in the garden this year, so searched online for recipes after getting fed up of them in stir-fries and the like. I adapted it to gluten free and it's fab. Love your teapot, btw! x

I love GBBO - makes me want cake though which isn't that great when you're meant to be on a diet. And Zucchini bread as Wendy mentions is lush as well as banana bread.

I love your teapot, it is so retro, really takes me back to the early 60s... I love it and I don't drink tea. Mind you I could probably manage a slice of banana bread :)

Never tried banana cake!!! and as I have some over ripe bananas I think I might just remedy that... baking here I come.
