You just can’t go wrong with a batch of muffins, can ya? These Banana and Honey Roasted Walnut Muffins are moist, keep well on the counter (if they survive even a day out of the oven – because they smell incredible…) and are almost impossible to mess up. The batter’s light and airy – even packed with three spotty bananas – and spiced with cinnamon, while the top has a little extra crunch thanks to some oven roasted walnuts sticky with honey. Yum!
Banana Bread’s always high up on the list for me when I’m feeling a bit bored and fancy baking something, but don’t want to put in a lot of effort (or ingredients) – it’s an easy, crowd pleasing lump of lush, innit? And it’s the perfect kitchen worktop snack for when you drag your butt away from the computer and head off in search of a mid-morning/mid-afternoon snack to go with your tea or coffee (for those who’ve never worked from home before, the 11am/3pm munchies are real and cannot be ignored). But it gets a bit boring baking the same old loaf over and over again, doesn’t it? At some point, you’ve got to mix things up or go banana bread bonkers. So I’ve scrolled the Cwtch archives and found five Banana-themed recipes that are just as easy, just as satisfying and just as boredom-busting as ye olde bog-standard Banana Bread.
Self-Isolation Snack Game: STRONG So, hands up if you’ve spent a good deal of your self isolation so far stress baking. Yup, I can’t seem to stay out of the kitchen.

I feel like bananas are a bit of a divisive fruit. I know people who will absolutely no way – under no circumstances – go anywhere near them, and then there are those who find them… a’peeling (har de har). I absolutely love them; I’ve always got a few banging around in my fruit bowl – and whether they’re soft and freckled, or practically green, they’re hands down the star of this Caramel and Banana Upside Down Cake. With a sticky, sweet and slightly crisp caramel crust on the outside, the cake itself is moist and crumbly and slightly spiced with cinnamon (and rum, if you’re feeling it!). Topped with sliced bananas, you can scoff it cold, or even better, slightly warmed with either cream, ice cream or custard.
