The banana muffin just upped its sass factor. I’ve taken a childhood favourite banana muffin recipe from my legendary Aunty B and thrown in a few of my favourite things; success! These muffins are made with vegetable oil and wholemeal flour, and each warm bite is fluffy, moist and full of juicy blueberries. Topped with a generous dollop of lime cream cheese frosting and crunchy coconut flakes, these babies promise comfort, scrumptiousness and a little zing. And they are super easy to bake, the muffin recipe is one-bowl and there ain’t no funny business. Just pure and sweet cakey goodness.
This pretty little sponge cake is delicately light, delightfully fruity and quite frankly scrumptious. Don’t be afraid of attempting the ever-so daunting sponge and it’s poorly understood pal, the passionfruit curd. Both recipes may seem like technical challenges beyond your reach, but I’ve detailed a few key steps that should allow you to sail straight to baking bliss. And the result is worth it; the slight tartness of the passionfruit curd and fresh blueberries are a wonderful complement to the velvety whipped cream, which I’ve laced with vanilla bean. Served up with a cup of tea on a warm summer’s day, this cake couldn’t get any more… lovely.
