I love baking!! I'm no Mary Berry but I do enjoy it. I have to be careful what I bake though with Mr M being a Type 1 diabetic I like to make sure he can enjoy what I bake too. I use Splenda instead of sugar when baking to make it more diabetic friendly.
One of our favourite bakes is Banana Loaf.
Mr M won't eat banana's once the skin has bruises on it (he thinks the banana is off - no matter how many times I tell him they are still quite edible!!)
Pre heat your oven to 180 degrees.
Butter/margarine the inside of your loaf tin
Put 7 teaspoons of Splenda in a bowl (or 175g sugar)
Add 125g butter/margarine to the bowl
Mix this together. Add your 2 eggs
I whisk the eggs into the mix but you can use a wooden spoon
Measure out 250g self raising flour and gradually add this to the mix, stirring as you go (with a wooden spoon)
Once all the flour is added and mixed in, mash up your 2 bananas and add them to the mix
Stir in the bananas
Place your mix in your loaf tin
Place in the oven for 45 minutes. Check with a skewer that the loaf is cooked through. Turn out onto a cooling rack (or in my case a shelf of my oven with kitchen roll on it)
Once cooled cut and enjoy :)
A really tasty recipe!
