Tea In The Garden With Honey Man and Baby

This afternoon Jon, Baby and I lounged in the Garden and enjoyed Tea with 
Peanut Butter Banana Bread.
One of my bloomers hiding from the ferocious puppy who has been eating my flowers
and everything else in the yard.


Peanut Butter Banana Moist Bread:

INGREDIENTS
* 2 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 
* 1 tsp baking powder 
* 1 tsp baking soda
 * 2 cup jaggery ( I just used a 1 cup and 1/2 regular sugar )
* 1/2 cup butter 
* 1 cup milk 
* 2 eggs lightly beaten
 * 2 mashed bananas 
* 1 tsp vanilla
 * 1 cup crunchy peanut butter ( I also altered the 1 cup to 1/2 cup Peanut Butter )

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat the oven to 160 deg C.  
2. Coat a pan with butter to grease it.  3. Mix flour, jaggery, peanut butter, melted butter with a wide spatula in a bowl till it becomes a crumbly mixture. Reserve one cup of mixture for later use.  4. Make a small well right in the middle of the mixture and add milk, eggs, mashed bananas, vanilla, baking Powder and baking soda.  5. Mix all the ingredients well into a batter.  6. Pour the batter into the greased loaf pan and top it with the reserved crumble mixture.  7. Bake the cake for about 40-45 minutes and ensure that the top mixture (crumble layer) does not get burnt.  8. Check if the cake is ready by inserting a toothpick after 40 minutes. If it comes out clean, it’s ready to be taken out of the oven.  9. Place on a wire rack to cool and then remove the cake from the pan. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I wish everyone a delightful weekend!
Much Love
~ Marie
