…..and other lesser bakes

Its been a busy old month so I haven’t had much time to blog or bake but I have managed to do three MB bakes – Chocolate brownies, chocolate tray bake and banana bread. And its been a  Its been a long time coming but I have faced my nemesis in the last few weeks. The Tardis cake. More of that later.

Chocolate brownies were the most fun.

This time the brownies were a winner though. I was actually afraid that they wouldn’t be chocolatey enough but they were delicious. I have made these about three times this month as they are terrifically versatile.  Don’t overcook them!

Banana bread was made due to excess ripe babanans. Itw as the easiest ting in the worls to make. Mary does love her all in one recipes! Its was simple yet delicious and lovely with butter.

beautifully simple and tasty!
