Crumbly Fruit Loaf!! πŸ˜ΈπŸ™€πŸ°


Saving it for a Rainy Day!!

Woke up to a rainy day.

It’s almost Summer here in Australia, but the weather didn’t read that playbook, so on went the slow combustion fire while I set my mind to making something delicious to enjoy with a nice cup of tea …

Fruity, Crumbly Goodness:

I thought I had a couple of bananas that were the worse for wear so my mind turned to making banana loaf, but when I checked I only had one small banana and that wasn’t going to be enough – but I did have some strawberries and some blueberries that could be of some use.

I love crumble!

So why not combine the two? So a nice moist, banana-berry cake with a muesli crumble topping was born!!

How about a nice cup of tea?

So we ate a piece straight out of the oven with a nice cup of tea – and I’m sure it would be delicious with some ice cream or some whipped cream …

The Recipe:

Ingredients:

Cake:

2 Cups Wholemeal Self Raising Flour

3/4 Cup shredded coconut

3/4 Cup brown sugar

100 gms melted butter

2 Eggs

1 Cup Milk

Pinch Salt

Two Teaspoons Vanilla

1 small ripe banana, mashed

400 gms berries, sliced

Crumble:

1 1/2 Cup muesli

1/2 Cup raw sugar

1/2 Cup shredded coconut

100 gms butter

Method:

Cake:

1. Prepare a 20cm springform tin

Top Tip: use a product like glad bake to line the inside of the cake tin so that the cake can be easily lifted out of the tin – AND there is no sticking!

2. Melt butter

3. Mix together dry ingredients

4. Lightly whisk eggs with the milk

5. Add the milk/egg mixture with the vanilla, butter and fruit to the dry ingredients

6. Lightly mix together, ensuring all dry ingredients are moistened but DO NOT overmix the batter

7. Pour into cake tin

Then:

Crumble:

1. Mix all dry ingredients together

2. Rub butter into dry ingredients

3. Place crumble mixture over the top of the cake batter and bake for approximately for 35minutes at 180 degrees Celsius

Thank you for visiting my little corner of the web and I hope you can enjoy this great recipe and brighten up your rainy day! I’d love to hear from you in a like, comment or follow,

      1. Yes, I made delicious wholemeal cinnamon scrolls yesterday and was going to put them on the blog but now I don’t think there’s much point but they are so yummy! πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈβ€οΈπŸ™

      1. I think a lot of traffic issues has to do more with SEO tactics, than actual content. The right tags are important. But, I have found that the Title is super important! And with the Slug, I never add words like β€œof, the, is, can”. The title might have these words, but I only put the Main Words of Title in the Slug. I also post my things to Pinterest. Some people get thousands of readers. I’m not sure how they do it. Sometimes it is people who have been on here for years. Or maybe they have a gigantic family. Lol.. Writing is a great stress reliever for me. 😊

      2. Thank you for your advice – yes some people do get a lot of readers and they’re not much chop either… I don’t know what SEO or Slug mean either but that’s ok. Yes, your writing is cathartic

      3. Tomorrow, or as soon as possible, I will try to explain the Slug to you, or anything else I can help you with. I will make a note to do so on my list so I don’t forget. Lol.. it might be few days until because of holidays.. I will write it on my list! 😊
