Spring Has Sprung

After my last post bemoaning the lack of spring like weather, Sunday made up for it.  It was still a cold start to the morning, but soon warmed up and not a cloud in the sky.  Perfect weather for drying the washing and Father’s Day.

After spending the morning baking again, I ventured over to Mum and Dad’s for afternoon tea.  Unfortunately, Mick had to work.

Instead of going through my old recipes, this time I tried a couple of new ones – both very successful.  I’ll share the recipe for this Caramel Banana Cake tomorrow.  Mmmmm Mmmmm!

The second recipe was for Hazelnut Chocolate Biscuits, shared recently by Tracy.  I didn’t have any hazelnut spread, so at Tracy’s suggestion, used peanut butter instead.

Another success, although very rich.  You don’t want to eat too many at once.  Mick loves brownies, so is very happy with these. Thanks for the recipes Tracy.

Glad you had a good day, shame the man had to work though.
