soda alternatives

sineadfay  asked:

If you work in food and someone asks for diet soda or alternative milk or bread, PLEASE be careful and give them what they ask for! It could mean life or death! Or the person could be seriously ill. I'm lactose intolerant and i have family who are diabetic and I'm SO careful. I changed 3 drinks because my coworker forgot which soda was diet. I explained this to her and she understands now but it's really serious guys. Don't risk someone's health like that.

Sure sure!

125g (4oz.) Butter
¾ cup sugar
2 eggs
3 medium bananas
2 cups self-raising flour
pinch salt
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 tablespoons milk

Cream butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add eggs one at a time; beat well after each addition. Peel and mash bananas, measure 1 cup, add to creamed mixture, mix well. Fold in the sifted flour, salt and soda alternately with the milk.

Spoon mixture evenly into two greased and greased-paper-lined 18 cm (7in.) sandwich tins. Bake in moderate oven 25 to 30 minutes.

When cold, fill with whipped cream, dust top with sifted icing sugar.


I don’t measure 1 cup of bananas unless I think there’s dramatically less banana than usual, so mash 3 and throw it in- mashing or turning it into some kind of banana mush with a blender is fine too but I think the texture is better when it’s mashed.

I also don’t put it in 2 separate tins.. I think that’s all up to serving preferences, most of the time I have the banana cake plain, because it’s so good :D
