banana beer bread

1 x ganary bread mix
1 x white bread mix
2 desert spoons cinnamon
3 bananas
80g pecan nuts
1 dozen fresh dates
50g sugar
generous squirt of maple syrup
1 bottle pear cider
water to suit

heat the oven to gas mark 6 and oil a couple of loose bottomed cake tins
mix the dry ingredients, chop the dates bananas and pecans and add.
mix in the pear cider and enough water to make a runny dough.

pour 1/2 the mixture into the tins, pour on a swirl of maple syrup, then add the rest of the mixture and bake till the bottom sounds hollow (45 mins approx). if the bottom and sides need to brown a little turn the cakes upside down on the loose bottoms and give them a little longer- this isn;t an exact science. Tastes yummy.

New Year

The New Year seems to be running away really quickly - I feel like I haven't been "getting things done" so my first post this year is a photo story of the year to date. (the bits where I took a camera, anyway)
Teignmouth on New Years Day
Teignmouth, New Years Day

Stover Lake frozen and snowy 7th January

Carved a face in the ice ball outside-- 8th January

Still frozen at the Heath -- 10th January

Up on the Moor -- 18th January - hex in the bottom corner, hound tor in the distance.

Between Lustleigh and Haytor --18th January

View from Allotment 18th-- Was digging here in a T shirt yesterday!!

Dramatic moorland clouds 18th January.

Done plenty of walking and photo taking anyway.
Looking over my photos reminds me that the things I did do were just as important as the other stuff I should've done.
