A Hidden Forest

We have got some of our beloved friends over. Yesterday we went on a beautiful walk to a lake. On the way mum showed us a hidden forest that mum found before. I want to live there. (It is even better in real life).

I made scones, banana bread and pumpkin cornbread. Here are the recipes:

Banana Bread:

2 mashed bananas
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup of milk
1 1/3 cups self-raising flour
3/4 cup walnuts (optional)
1/4 cup melted milk chocolate

Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees C (fan-forced). Line a loaf tin with baking paper. Combine banana and sugar in a medium bowl; stir in egg, oil and milk. Add remaining ingredients. Stir 'till combined. Pour into tin and bake for 1 hour.

2 1/2 cups S.R flour
1 tbs sugar
1/4 tsp salt
30g butter
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 tsp milk (extra)

Pre-heat oven 220 degrees C (fan-forced). Line baking tray with baking paper. Sift flour, sugar and salt into a bowl. Rub in butter. Stir in milk and water 'till it is a sticky, soft dough. Flour the bench and knead 'till it is the consistency you want. Roll out 'till it is 1-2 cm thick. Cut out circles by using a cup. Place on tray a brush with milk. Bake for 15min or until golden. Serve with jam and cream.

Remember 'River Cottage' I watched with mum during our girls time? Well the pumpkin cornbread was from there. Recipe:
