Reuben and I had a conversation a while ago which made me decide I wanted to make a chocolate and banana cake. A friend of mine recently made a fantastic one and kindly passed on the recipe. I must say this one came out very differently - I seem to have a problem with particularly flat cakes at the moment, and the banana was much more chunky and noticeable in this one, but I *loved* it. It was even more moist than last time I tried it, and I added a little more cocoa. It's really, really good!
So. We had cake. We had a candle. We had sunshine. We had friends and family. We had fun in the garden. We had homemade pizza for tea. Our tummies are full but what a big hole we have in our home and our hearts.
Chocolate Banana Cake
½ cup sugar
3 bananas, mashed
1 tsp baking soda
¼ cup milk
1 ½ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 Tbs cocoa
Cream butter and sugar. Add egg, beat well. Stir in bananas. Dissolve soda in warm milk, add to banana mixture.
In a separate bowl, sift and mix together dry ingredients. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
Bake approx 30 minutes at 180 degrees celcius. When cool, ice with chocolate icing.

Reuben is pretty sure God had His mixer out today. And if He didn't have any candles, Jesus would have some.
