It’s also the perfect afternoon pick me up, packed full of energy and relatively healthy in our eyes, using two bananas in the mix it’s practically one of your five a day!

    Banana + Cinnamon Cake

    Who doesn’t love a slice of warm banana cake either smothered in cream cheese frosting washed down with a large mug of tea? For our recent trip to Cornwall, Blanch whipped up a super easy banana cake to enjoy whilst looking out across the ocean and making the most of a rare bit of spring sunshine. I don’t know about you but I have always loved a banana cake and this one is super tasty with added sultanas that have been soaked in earl grey tea and of course layers of cream cheese frosting.

    Chocolate + Coconut Date Bars

    These chocolate and coconut date bars are a great sweet yet healthy snack bars, perfect for that 3pm afternoon slump with a large mug of tea. They are naturally sweetened with desiccated coconut, a couple of spoonfuls of honey and are super easy to make only using 5 ingredients. I whipped up a batch after work one Monday evening to stock up for the week ahead and they took me about 15 minutes in total make, so super easy to fit in around the gym and multiple friends episodes!

    Blackberry + Plum Bakewell Tart

    These long winter days of February call upon cosy evenings sipping on wine with your bestie’s and the ultimate comfort food in the form of an old classic the bakewell tart. I recently made one for a friends dinner party and it went down pretty well even if I do say so myself! I did adapt this family favourite slightly by using blackberries and plum rather than cherry as the slight sourness from the blackberries works well against the sweet almond, the perfect wintery treat for you and your friends. A fat wedge of this tart alongside a steaming cup of tea is exactly what you need when you come in from the cold after a long day.

The recipe is super similar to a carrot cake but using the inside of a pumpkin instead as well as orange zest and sultanas for added texture. Using pumpkin flesh gives the cake an amazing deep orange colour thats perfect to serve to all your ghostly guests over the Halloween weekend and beyond. Continue reading
