My trials, tribulations and triumphs while attempting to bake my way through Lorraine Pascales book, Baking made Easy, and hopefully proving that yes, it is.

Banana and Pecan Thingy.
One of the best things about being able to make cakes is giving them to someone else to enjoy. I make a few cakes for birthdays and christenings and they are always my favourite types. Its all going back to that need to feed people and of course see them happy. I'm sure any psychologists reading this would scream the need to please people/ middle child syndrome!!! This cake, well the majority of it was given to a cake loving friend. She has very kindly offered to eat cakes so that Mark and I don't have to eat everything in the book, now isn't that nice!!!! It does mean that she'll get things with pieces missing, well I have to try them first. This cake was pretty tasty but I ran out of time to add the rum syrup (sorry Ruth!) which I think would have really added to it. I hope it was enjoyed.
