Spring has sprung and our time just moved 1 hour ahead, which means it gets dark later! Yes, it’s about time to welcome spring and summer. I think I am bored of winter, wearing the thick jacket, scarf and gloves. It’s time to give my wardrobe a spring clean – keep all the bulky clothes away and have all the spring/summer clothes easy to reach.
During this time of the year, I long for light and simple dishes. In fact, I have already got a few in my head, which I will make them and post soon. I have been insanely busy lately and have kind of neglected my blog. When I woke up this morning, I said to myself that l have to write a post before we step into April. Then, I was thinking what do I have to post? I was looking around my kitchen for some inspirations and to check if there’s anything that I could make. Then, I saw some bananas in the fruit basket, about to get lots of dark spots on the skin, I thought, well, banana cake perhaps?
Not long ago, I saw a banana cake recipe by Gertrude from My Kitchen Snippets, which I have bookmarked and wanted to try out. So, it was a great timing as these bananas have to be used or eaten. When I looked at the photos, those slices of banana cake look really moist and yummy! I also noticed that Gertrude used condensed milk, which I have never seen this in any other recipe. I was very very excited and anxious to try. I didn’t wait any longer and got all the ingredients ready. I didn’t have the size of the cake tin that Gertrude specified, so I just used a loaf tin.
The smell of cake baking in the kitchen was just fantastic! Not long after that, I got a lovely looking banana cake in front of me, this is going to be my breakfast for the next few days! 😉
