Ramadan Chronicles: Banana Date Cake with Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting

First, let me just say: The Maathaaland* has DEFIED EXPECTATIONS and sent the Group B from Cricket Champions trophy tournament into mayhem by beating India. We are all properly gobsmacked at this turn of events. I heard even MamaFizzle was properly enthused. In the animal world, this would be like: Anyway, back to food. There…

Ramadan Chronicles: Banana Bread-Cake

WHO WANTS TO PLAY SOME SNAIL CRICKET! Look what Google Doodles did. I got bowled at 16. 😞 It’s ok, my baking is far better than my batting. And I made bread. Well, cake. But if it’s breakfast we’ll still call it bread. It did require some consultation: I even wrote down proportions this time:…

Banana Cinnamon Mug Cake

There was once a beautiful balcony, with a beautiful view, in a beautiful house. So much beauty. What could have been more enticing than the thought of entering such a place? Like you, there was one who responded, ‘Why nothing of course. I must immediately set forth into this beautiful balcony.’ And so she did….

Black Bottom Banana Cupcakes

These are actually super unhealthy and feel strangely like eating Pisang Goreng* which is delicious but again, not particularly good for you. I found it on Spoon University and it had a few weird instructions, like 1 tbs of baking powder and…

When out of sight of the human species, they glow neon green and can bounce up to 3 banana feet in the air. When out of ear-shot of the human species they converse amongst each other in the ancient banana…

Strawberry-Banana Smoothie

This is a Fizzle classic. Kind of. Strawberry-Banana drinks have been an occasional indulgence for as long as I can remember, courtesy of Mama Fizzle. And Banana-Yoghurt smoothies have been a regular in the Fizzle house ever since we designed it to suit the needs of Izzlet#1 back in May. In fact, it was an…

More Banana Oat Muffins

Biggest of sisters, I made more muffins! These fit your ingredient requirements a little better than the last. No yoghurt for Mr Izzle and no baking soda for you. These don’t even need chocolate but as you can see I hadn’t anticipated that and melted chocolate for a topping anyway. It was appreciated by brother…

Banana Oat Chocolate Muffin Blends

Seeeeester Hello, I made muffins in a blender today. A blender you say? Yes yes a blender tis true. But why? The real question dear sister is wHy NOt? Also – less washing up and less transfer between bowls therefore less effort in trying not to waste residual food in the transfer process and less…
