Me? Bake a cake? No way!

Yes, you have just read it right. I baked a cake. A loaf of banana cake. Unbelievable. I have never baked my entire life. I just got challenged that a male colleague was bragging about baking a banana cake and saying that it is so easy, that he just mixes all the ingredients up together and shoves it in the oven, wait for about an hour, and voila! It's all done. So, I was thinking...this bloke knows how to bake??? And I don't??? So, on the way home one Friday evening, I asked hubby to take me to the supermarket and we shopped for all the ingredients, with the list in my hand - and of course, a lot of assistance from husband (how do I know what 'self raising flour' is?) to see if I was getting all the right things from the shelves.
The result? My husband gave me a 10 out of 10! Not bad for someone who has just started baking, huh? Because of that very good rating, I am sharing with you the banana cake recipe that I got from Cook UK, please click here.
I used sultanas, instead of nuts, by the way. It was yummy! Yes, I'm tooting my own horn, ha!

Well done and thanks for showing the recipe. Muffins are easy to make (so I am told...I don't bake much)
Your cake looked good.

Oooh you don't know what you're missing...not baking I mean. I prefer baking to real cooking any day. For me baking cakes and sweet stuff is like play day. There really is nothing to it.
