Just made another banana and hazelnut upside down cake. It looks burnt but it’s fine - made with dark muscovado sugar. Looking forward to lunch! #baking #cake #glutenfree #muscovadosugar

ArtsNorth Primary Choral Concert

My little guy loves to sing.  Last year he auditioned for the school’s choir but during that process he was shown the door for making a silly noise and never had the chance to audition, let alone be in the choir.  He had to wait an entire year to audition again and this time he was on his very best behaviour, passed his audition and gained a hallowed place in the choir.

Gluten-Free Banana and Hazelnut Cake

Gluten-Free Banana and Hazelnut Cake

After her whirlwind visit, my sister Em, is now on a plane flying back to her husband and two sons in LA.  It was a very brief and rushed visit and I was very grateful we managed to find a few moments to spend together.  As most of you are aware, we spent Sunday together at a family lunch.  One of the dishes I brought was this upside down banana and hazelnut cake.
