For a lot of us the enforced isolation because of Covid-19 doesn’t mean separation from our family – but a hell of a lot more time spent together! So, even if you’re Mum’s already driving you mental from all the extra time spent together – here are five sweet bakes to surprise her with this Mother’s Day. 💛
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.
Last week, Sunny was away with work which meant I had a couple of days to get my pasta fix in. I saw the idea for these fried tomato and mozzarella balls on Pinterest and just had to give them a go and see if they could level up my basic pomodoro. I mean, deep fried mozzarella, amiright? Yuuuuuuuuum.
My stripped back take on Korean Dak-galbi makes for a tasty, spicy and colourful midweek stir fry and – aside from marinating time – goes from wok to table in 20 minutes. Noice!
Sometimes, it’s nice to go back to the basics and bake something easy but satisfying. These Blueberry Muffins are stupidly simple to bake and sure to put a smile on top of a blue week. 🙂
