Om nom nom nom (photos)

I made cake! Yummy cranberry, buttermilk, hazelnut and banana cake. The recipe came from the Dole Banana Book.
170g cranberries
100g butter
225g caster sugar
2 eggs
285g flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 Dole bananas, mashed
80mls buttermilk
I added hazelnuts on top too :)

1. Cover cranberries with boiling water and leave to soak for 15 mins. Strain and discard liquid.

2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a cake tin well with butter (I used a cooking spray).

3. Cream the butter and sugar until pale. Add eggs one at a time beating continuously.

4. Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt. Add mashed banana, cranberries and buttermilk then stir to combine.

5. Transfer to baking tin. Bake for 30 - 40 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.

6. Om nom nom nom! :D

Hope you've all had a great Wednesday :)
