each day the children take packed lunch to school, sandwich, fruit, water, and some kind of treat. I won't give crisps, or sweets, or chocolate bars and therefore I am a "mean old mummy".
oranges have to be easy peel, or they come back "I couldn't get in it........."
apples have to be cored, quartered and wrapped in cling film or "I can't bite them without any front teeth"
bananas just come back "it got squashed. I don't like squashed bananas.........."
today they've got really really squashed bananas, and they had fun squashing them too.
combine 75ml full fat milk, and 1tsp vinegar and leave to stand for 10 minutes (it will curdle and look gross - perfect for cooking with children then...)
sift 250g plain flour, 1tsp bicarbonate of soda, and 1/2 tsp salt.
cream together 110g butter and 195g caster sugar
beat in 2 beaten eggs,
then 250g (2 or 3 bananas) mashed banana and
75g chocolate chips
fold in flour mix, and the now curdled milk, and mix gently.....
bake in greased 2lb loaf tin at 180C for 50-60 minutes.
