Food, My life, Recipes

This is the day of wonders

I finished a craft project! I actually finished one. Today. I accomplished the improbable, defeated all the odds, seized the day, peed in the wind… well maybe not the latter. But I did finish my crochet top. It’s quite lovely as well. I’ll see if I can maybe take some pictures in the daylight tomorrow. I can also start a new project now. So excited. Any suggestions and ideas welcome.

I also invented a really lovely low calorie pudding. I was craving something sweet but I didn’t want to put any effort in it and I also didn’t want it to be too ‘naughty’. And there they were – lovely ripe bananas on my kitchen worktop just waiting to be made into something delicious. So I obeyed. I chopped up 1.5 bananas, mixed 0.5tsp cinnamon and 2tsp of dark demerara sugar, heated the frying pan, sprayed it with some coconut oil, threw the bananas in, let them fry a minute, threw the cinnamon/sugar mix in, tossed them all around for a couple of minutes, took the pan off the heat and scooped the gorgeously gooey pudding into a bowl and added some single cream. Oh, it was so nice. Here it is in a bit of a better format.


5 minutes


125g (1.5) bananas

0.5tsp cinnamon

2tsp sugar (dark demerara or muscovado)

Oil (I used coconut oil spray)

Single cream or ice-cream to serve


Heat up the frying pan. Chop up the banana(s). Mix cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. Oil the pan lightly and add the bananas. Let them fry about a minute, then add the cinnamon/sugar mix. Toss/stir it all around and fry the mix for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, to make sure it’s not sticking to the pan as it’ll all be very sugary and prone to sticking. When it looks ready to your taste, remove the pan from heat and scoop the pudding into a serving bowl. Serve with cream or ice-cream. Enjoy! 🙂
