I love to have a piece of cake when ever I have a coffee or tea. Banana bread is my favourite. Whenyou bake a banana bread or a cake the house smells like a bakery and even the next door neighbour will get the smell.
This cake is rich , soft and moist too. you canm leave the bread 3-4 days out in room temperature (I dont think you will keep that long 🙂 ) or about a week in fridge or you can freeze them for future use. I recommend you to slice the cake and leave individual pieces in fridge for easy thawing.
This recipe is for a large banana cake. You can divide the ingredients by two to a smaller loaf.

The ingredients you will neeed , 200g Butter in room temperature, 350 g Sugar, 4 Eggs, 2tsp vanilla, 400g plain flour, 2 Tsp Bicarbonate of soda, salt, 150 g Sour cream and 4 well riped banans.
Make sure to gather everything closer to you.
Add sugar and butter in to a mixing bowl and whisk well.
After add the eggs one by one and whisk well.
Add the bananas while whisking on a low speed.
Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk on a low speed first and then whisk on a high speed for one minute.
Add the prepared mix in to a loaf pan and bake on 180 c about 45 minutes to one hour or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.( The baking tray I used is 12 inch x 4 inch loaf pan) Leave the bread in the loaf pan for 5 minutes. After take out from the tray and leave on a wire rack to cool completely.
This is how it looks when taken out from the tray.
It is like a sponge. Once press it comes back to the shape.
This is how it looks when sliced.

Waffles are good to serve as a dessert or as breakfast. These waffles are so soft in texture too. If you want to serve in the morning make sure to prepare the dough in the evening the day before and bring to the proof. Then punch and leave it in fridge. Make the waffles in the morning.
With out using the waffle maker you can bake them in the oven too.
These bursting Blueberry buns are moist and scrumptious. The cream cheese gives a creamy flavour to the tart while blueberries gives full of goodness and colour. When you open them up the buns the purple colour juices gives a tempting and appealing look. You cant stop eating them at all.
Doing them the way I have done is super simple. You can use burger moulds or disposable foil cases or even muffin pans. If you are using muffin pans try cutting the dough in to smaller pieces. The other way is using a tart cases or one large one.
The other thing is you can leave them in fridge about three days. (I doubt it will stay that long) Can freeze them in individual bags for future use too. If you want to serve these for a high tea or a brunch try cutting them in to smaller pieces .
These mini coconut loves are loaded with coconut and also the flavours. This can be cut in to several small slices and serve for high tea or even for a brunch.You can bake them for school fairs or to give away for Christmas.
I love coconut as well as bread. I cant stop eating them when ever I make them. These small cakes can be done in small baking pans or loaf cases. If you cant find them make sure to use a larger tray leaving space to grow. If you are willing to buy them try online. I buy them online.
When you have time you can prepare the coconut mix and leave in fridge. It saves time. If you find it runny make sure to add a bit more coconut. Any way coconut absorb all the excess liquids in few minutes.
Cream cheese bread is one of my favourite breads. So creamy and rich in flavour and will come out like cotton soft.My secret for a softer bread is always the kneading process and the correct measurements.
To make the bread softer you can always add softening agents as in bread shops. With out softeners you can make proper bread if you knead well. I never keep any secret to my self. Trust me , you are getting the 100% correct recipes.
Though banana bread can be done in different ways , one of the best ways is with condensed milk. To get the colour and add some sweetness I added molasses in it. But you can totally omit molasses from this recipe too.
This bread is not very sugary as I didn’t add much sweetness to this bread. One way this bread is healthy with less oil and sugar. The other thing is you can serve this with a cup of coffee with extra butter or jam if you wish.
Where ever I go I order banana bread with my coffee. I always noticed that there is a huge difference from cafe to cafe. Don’t try from commercial type places as they put preservatives to keep longer.
I have so many different versions of banana bread types. Please browse in my channel or under the cake section if you like banana bread.
Almond meal or almond flakes or kernels are very nice in any cake. I use flakes always to decorate the cakes but some times I add in to cakes too to give a bit of crunch to the cake. This is a very soft and a moist cake that any one will love to have.
The chocolate hive and will take you to another world when you enjoy this with a nice cup of coffee or tea. If I tell you this a very rich and a beautiful cake even for special occasion. Make sure to add the best quality chocolate to get the right taste and the luxury look.

Fruit buns like these Sultana buns are always nice for breakfast or to go with a hot cup of tea or coffee. Adding fruits in to your home made bread makes it much nicer in taste. When baking the fruits get plump up and gives more flavour to the bread.
These buns are so simple to make and can freeze for future use too. Freeze them in individual bags for easy thawing.
Adding sesame seeds for these is optional. But it gives a nice crunchy taste for the buns. This can be served with butter or jam too.

No wonder why these beautiful spongy cake got this name. They are so spongy and very light like a feather. Its worth trying this recipe at least once to see how it looks like. I always add less sugar in my recipes. If you like to add more please feel free to add more sugar.
I did this cake in small loaf pans. But you can always use a larger tray for this. This can be kept in a fridge for a longer time too. Other than that you can freeze the cake with out a problem.
