monkey bread

The kids have been cooking … all by themselves. Monkey bread from The Baking Book by Jane Bull. Scarlett got this cookbook from Merryn as part of our second hand Christmas (last year I think).


The banana bread looks good (and tastes good) and the pot holders are lovely, aren’t they? I bought them in Hamilton at the op shop when I was visiting Merryn.

We didn’t have a loaf tin (I must have loaned it to someone) so they made round monkey bread. But that’s OK.  Round bread is cool right?!

They made it because we had some very ripe bananas. Here’s the recipe they used, with a sticky note addition by India noting their recipe modifications for future reference ( although perhaps the extra banana wasn’t needed).  How great are the picture instructions …

Good cooking kids.
