That would be the centre of my banana muffins. Following a recipe from Nigella Lawson's How To Be a Domestic Goddess I've discovered that it's singularly unsuccessful.

Ingredients: butter, honey, vanilla extract, bananas, plain flour, bicarb, baking powder, cinnamon, salt. Result = overcooked on the outside, sunken in the middle soggy heaps of greyish-brown banana gloop.

In their defence, the taste is nice, the texture, however, is revolting. Not a recipe I'll try again.

I thought at the time that there wasn't sufficient flour and fat but as I had three very overripe bananas I thought they were worth a go and muffins are easier to take to work and dish out than slices of banana loaf. Mistake. Delia Smith's banana bread is much better.

There are some breakfast bars, also from a Nigella recipe, in the oven - they should be more successful though as I've made them several times before.

Now should I go and quickly dash up a few cheese scones? I had all the ingredients out but then Amelia decided she'd had enough of my preoccupation with the oven and wanted a cuddle and a feed.
