Just a little quickie this week. It’s been such a hectic week I haven’t had time to scratch myself! The parentals were up from Hobart this weekend so I’ve been busy playing host over the last couple of days. On Saturday we went for a very quick day trip up to Daylesford. Unfortunately the weather was pretty wet and cold so we escaped to the warm of Wombat Hill House and ate some delicious pizzas (they even have gluten free). If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen the super tasty blood orange spider which was sen-saaaaaa-tional! It sounded too amazing to pass up even if it was freezing outside. I might have to recreate it in summer when the weather is a little more appropriate!
Anyway, I’ll keep it short and sweet this week… remember a few weeks ago I went to a very special lady’s 70th birthday? Remember how I said I made a little something to take with me? Yeah? Well here it is! Banana bundts with chocolate drizzle. Super tasty.
Banana Bundts with Chocolate Drizzle
1 3/4 cups self-raising flour
1/4 cup plain flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup skim milk
2 eggs, lightly whisked
50g butter, melted, cooled
2 overripe medium bananas, mashed
200g dark chocolate finely chopped
1/2 cup double cream
1. Preheat oven to 180°C and spray mini bundt tin with spray oil.
2. Sift the combined flours and cinnamon into a large bowl along with the brown sugar. In a separate bowl mix the milk, eggs, melted butter and banana until well combined. Add the banana mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin 3/4 full and try to smooth the surface as much as possible.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
4. Place finely chopped chocolate into a bowl. In a saucepan heat cream and butter on medium/high heat until simmering. Remove from heat and pour over chopped chocolate and stir continuously until completely melted. Drizzle over the bundts.
