Easy Banana Cake


If you are looking to make an easy banana cake that takes no longer than 15mins to prepare, no longer than 45 mins to bake, not sickeningly sweet, is moist and fluffy, then yup, just scroll on to get yourself the recipe and start baking. I’ve made this twice and I’ve got nothing but raves from the people who ate them, namely a really good friend of mine, and the bf. 🙂

The bf doesn’t really have a sweet tooth, but he scarfed down 1/4 of this cake, so yup I’m definitely making this again when there’s a party that I’m going to.

This recipe is taken from cupcake jemma’s youtube channel. She’s really awesome. So if you’d Like to have a step by step walk through for this recipe, do click on the link and watch her video. I’ve tweaked the recipe a little to fit my liking so. So it’s entirely up to you which you’d like to follow

Caramalized Banana Butterscotch chips Lactation Muffins


When you reach a certain age, and you start seeing friends having kids all around you, you start researching on recipes to bake or cook for them to help them in certain areas needing a little bit more help with. 🙂

1 of the more obvious yummilicious stuff that my friends have been asking for would be lactation goodies. In the past, I would think just spamming loads of brewers yeast would actually help with the production of milk. But as like everything else, too much of something doesn’t really lead to awesome stuff. After some tweaking and guinea pig runs, I’ve finally managed to come up with this awesome caramelized banana butterscotch chips lactation muffin. I stole 2 straight out from the oven. oops. 🙂

What I like about this is that we don’t compromise on the important ingredients –  brewer’s yeast, flaxseed and oats added, and there is hardly any smell or taste from them. It smells and taste exactly as how a normal muffin should. Moist and soft.

This muffin has a slight crispy top, from the caramelization, and a strong banana and butterscotch smell. So if you are a banana fan, this is definitely something for you.
