There's always one banana in the fruit bowl which we just don't get round to eating. Last week there were three there. They're so off putting when the skins have turned black, but it's at this stage when they're perfect for using in baking.
I had just the right amount with three to make this really easy Banana Muffins with Chocolate Chips recipe. The bananas don't look particularly appetising once they've been turned to mush but the end result is worth it.
Bananas may languish in the fruit bowl long enough for them to turn black, but they don't last two minutes once they've been turned in to muffins.
I've also been making some Artisan No Knead Bread which I've seen on various blogs just lately. I love it toasted and Mick likes it for his work sandwiches. It's so easy to make too.
Daniel came home from university on Friday for the weekend so I made a double batch yesterday so that he could take a loaf back with him. I don't think it will last long when his housemates catch sight of it.
