I am a natural busy body and I must be honest that being on Maternity Leave is actually kind of hard for me. I am of course very grateful that I have the opportunity to focus on the important time that is to come, but on the other hand I love being busy regardless if it is at work or at home. The one thing that has definitely improved in the meantime, is my baking (although neither Sascha’s waist or my thighs are happy about this)! 🙂 I have been making different coffee style cakes about 3 times a week!
I posted a few weeks ago a very easy recipe for a strawberry cake, although I love the tartness of it, I actually always have bananas at home. So I decided to try the exact same recipe with only two small changes. The layer of strawberries is nixed out for a layer of bananas and to the streusel I added a tablespoon of cinnamon. The end result was AMAZING. We ate it warm with vanilla ice cream and both agreed it was one of the best coffee cakes we had ever had. Please don’t judge from the photo, it is not the prettiest cake you will ever see, but I promise worth your making!
