Simple, easy, yummy

I use this all the time for quick yummy bananas and custard. I always add a teaspoon of vanilla as this makes it fantastic. The powder is so useful in baking too, use to replace 1oz flour in shortbread or cakes for much improved texture, flavour and colour.

Lisa's tip: for a smooth cupcake batter, allow all your ingredients to come to room temperature before you combine them, so they mix evenly.
