Banana bread, blogs and downward dogs*

As I write this the house is filling with the delicious scent of bananas and baking; I’m making a banana loaf ready for our next guests.


When I first started baking for guests I made Welshcakes, (though these are  cooked on a griddle not baked) to share a little of my Welsh background. And of course because they’re delicious


I also wanted to use Scottish recipes, though I still haven’t perfected shortbread despite having a few favourite family  recipes to choose from.   Oatcakes and butteries have been more successful

and  bolstered by that experiment with puff pastry I’ve had a go at the French breakfast classic, croissants.

Following other blogs has opened up a world of recipes for me, I love reading the posts here and made a batch of breakfast cookies last year.



And so back to my banana bread, it’s out of the oven and cooling down. But where did this recipe come from?


Well I tasted it first on a picnic last week and asked for the recipe. And this morning after yoga class I was given not just the  recipe but a little bag containing some essential ingredients.
