Banana Custard Cream Blondies

Banana Custard Cream Blondies

My Banana Custard Cream Blondies are a great way of combining biscuits and cake in one delicious treat. Give them a try, you will not be disappointed.  

Banana and custard is such an old fashioned pairing. Of course it is a simple dessert, but it just works in terms of flavours. Seeing as though I am always looking for new ways of using up over ripe bananas, these melt-in-the-mouth Banana Custard Cream Blondies are a yummy way of doing so.

Carrot Bundt Cake

This easy to make Carrot Bundt Cake is light, moist and flavoured with warm spices and a subtle tang of orange. It is dairy free too. Give it a try next time you fancy making a carrot cake.

Carrot Cake is very popular with my children, and I like to think that with it containing fruit and vegetables that it is one of the more healthier cakes I make for them. With banana cake coming in a close second.
