July 4th – Parties and Vegan Cakes

1999: Up bright and early at 6.30.  Mummy took me to Nanny’s at 7.45 as she’s going to a party in the park in London.  I don’t think it’s at all fair.  Everyone knows parties are for children and my mummy is leaving me behind!  I did get to spend the day with daddy though; Grandma picked me up from Nan’s at 11.30.  I fell asleep before we left, but apparently daddy took me back to Nanny’s

2019: Rang mum yesterday to ask her to make some lactose and gluten free cakes for todays cake sale and also through a vegan challenge into the mix. She actually succeed to make banana muffins which went down a treat and I got the recipe from her below.

Absolutely smashed the cake sale today raising £115 towards Crohn’s and Colitis and my Mountain time trial and Aviva have matched this! With 3 weeks to go I need to stop eating cake and get to the gym.

Banana Vegan Muffins – Lactose, and Gluten Free:

Mix 1 1/4 cups of gluten free flour with teaspoon xanthan gum (check vegan), and sodium biocarb, sprinkle of salt and 2/3 cup of sugar (or substitute).

Add 1/2 cup of warmed olive oil, two very ripe mash bananas and teaspoon apple cider vinegar with mum and mix well.

Dissolve teaspoon coffee in 1/4 cup boiling water and add to the mix gradually until at consistency. I actually weighed these today to get them even – 34g = 19 cakes. Cook for 15 minutes in pre-heated oven at 180c

I may do stupid things and make light of them but deep down there’s a reason and I love exploration, even if I cannot fully understand the outcome!
