Hello, what a nice break I’ve had, bet ya missed me.
You guys may have noticed that lately I’ve been baking a lot, early last month I might have let you in on my secret. Which is baking keeps me sane. Very sane. And while life has been nothing less than shit, I feel very sane. But I’ve also been spoiling myself with juice and great green smoothies. Nothing like mixing fruits and greens to keep me a happy lamb.
So today I baked again, after deciding on my future and winning an inner battle with myself. I felt like baking was suitable. Because for a long time, I’ve felt that I needed permission from other people to be myself, and it wasn’t until today I found out that the permission I was looking for, was more acceptance of other people. A sad, sad existence I have had until now.
So today I took inspiration from Maja Vase, you can find the cake here
Dines loves banana cake and I love baking. But I adjusted the recipe to fit us a bit better. Removing the milk chocolate from the cake and adding white chocolate instead, also removing the nuts and adding homemade salted caramel on top. The salted caramel actually gave a nice taste to the cake and according to Dines; “A regret if you hadn’t tried it”
