On the day I made little cupcakes for the wee man's third birthday I realized I didn't have enough cake for the adults and we all like cake right, so I quickly made this banana tea loaf was super easy and was a hit, with the kids and adults a like. Funny I used to be so intimated by baking and have made lots of mistakes, you see my Grandma is one of the worlds best bakers and has big shoes to fill. But as they say practice makes perfect and over the years baking is getting a little easier. I love making cakes with the kids and have been since they were young. Our daughter is now 6 I started Chow and Chatter when she was a baby, she can now pick veggies from the garden and cut them and help me make dinner - magic.
Thanks for continuing to be with me on this blogging journey, pull up a chair for a cuppa and slice of cake.
