Baking Therapy

I came home from hospital last night and went straight into the kitchen to bake. It was time for some creative therapy for me. Since I had half a kilo of over ripe bananas to turn into something yummy before they ended up in the bin as waste. I picked a banana bread recipe out a recipe book a friend had given me.
Soon the smell of butter, vanilla and rum relaxed me and it wasn't long before I was munching dark rum infused raisins while I mixed the ingredients together to create a surprisingly delightful cake. This close-up shows the walnuts and the raisins within, the mashed banana has dissolved into the cake. I may just bake more and turn them into Christmas gifts.
