Homemade Smoothies

Hi guys!
I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while, so here is a recipe for you💓.

Smoothies

Things you will need:

1 banana (You can always double or half the ingredients if you want to make a bigger or smaller smoothie)
Apple (or orange) Juice
5 - 10 Strawberries
5 - 10 Raspberries
A knife
Chopping Board
Blender

Method

First, chop up your banana(s) and take off the stalks of your strawberries. Then put them in to the blender. Next, take your raspberries and put them into the blender. After that, fill the blender with your apple or orange juice, (there should be a line that tells you how much you can put in) and screw on the lid (if you have a blender like that 😂) . Then, blend your smoothie! Wait till most of the bits in the smoothie are gone until you pour your smoothie into glasses or jugs. If you are making this smoothie a day before serving it, I recommend keeping it in the fridge, or the fruit could go off.

I really hope you like this smoothie. I normally make this when I have…

My favourite peanut butter cookies!

Hi!
Yesterday I made the most delicious crunchy peanut butter and banana cookies!
If you follow my Instagram, you will have seen a picture on there, but if not, I'll show you the cookies in this post.

Instead of a picture of the recipe,  I will share the link with you.

Here it is:

And here is a picture of the cookies when they are completely finished:


Just to say, I added the bananas, but it didn't say to on the recipe. It makes the cookies taste really good!
So, if you want to add bananas, here's what to do:

When you have made your dough, before taking it out to make into balls, add about a banana and a 1/2, sliced, into the mixture.

Then you can pick up the dough and make it into balls!

I really hope you have fun making these cookies!





Happy Baking!

Blueberry and banana eggy bread

Hello!
For breakfast today I made a blueberry and banana eggy bread. It was delicious. So today I'm going to tell you how to make it.

In my last blog post, which was about how to make a cream cake, I typed up all of the recipe, which took me ages. So, instead of typing up the recipe, I'm going to show you a picture of it.

This is the final result of your eggy bread:







Here's how to make it:


Thank you for reading this!
I really hope you like this recipe as much as I do!

Fresh Cream Cake

Hi Everyone!
Today me and my brother made a Fresh Cream Chocolate Cake for a friend's birthday.
In this post, I'll be telling you how to make it.


To Make The Cake, You Will Need:

1. 110 grams of self raising flour, sifted
2. 110 grams of soft margarine or butter, at room temperature
3. 110 grams of caster sugar
4. 2 large eggs
5. 2-3 drops of pure vanilla essence or (if you want to make a chocolate sponge) 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

To Finish:

Fresh Cream, Lemon Curd or Jam (optional) and sifted with icing sugar.


Method:

1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 3, 170'C.

2. Lightly grease and line with grease proof paper (or silicone paper), two seven inch sponge tins, no less than 1 inch deep.

3. Take a large mixing bowl and sift the flour and baking powder into it, holding the sieve high to give the flour a good airing.

4. Next add all of the other ingredients to the bowl, and whisk them until they are all combined.
If the mixture doesn't drop off a wooden spoon easily whe…

Flora's Cooking/Baking Tips

Hey Readers!
Today I'm going to give you my top 10 baking and cooking tips.

I hope you like them!







1. Remember to weigh out your ingredients carefully - if you don't, things can go wrong.
2. Don't use too much baking powder - things could rise - or fall - too quickly.

3. Don't rush the process of cake baking (especially when it comes to waiting for                                                       the cake to be cooked!)

4. Use the recipe as a guide, but not an absolute blueprint.

5. Use any equipment that makes baking easier. Like if you have to whisk something by hand - use an electric whisk instead!

6. Make sure your using the right kind of tin - different cakes need different tins depending on the ingredients and how quickly you want the heat to get to the mix.

7. Always have the right consistency of butter - if you don't, it could make your food too thick and buttery or too thin and crumbly.

8.  Always have your ingredients prepared before beginning a recip…
