I happened to come across this recipe for a hazelnut and banana cake which looked delicious and decided to give that a try as well. I decided to make cupcakes instead of cakes and mixed my banana into the cake batter, rather than layer it on top, as suggested in the original recipe.
It turned out to be absolutely delicious and something I will certainly make again. I think that it would also be nice if you added a little fruit to the mixture, something like apple, blueberry or plum would work well. (They really do taste much better than they look!)
For those who haven't heard, the lovely Steph at http://monpetitpoppet.blogspot.com has organised a softie drive, with the toys to be distributed to children in QLD who've lost their possessions due to the floods. I encourage everyone who can to get on board with this project, not only will the children get a lovely toy, it will be filled with love from the maker, extra special!
