    That's why I can't buy a breadmaker or else I would look like I was on It's a Knockout!

    Sounds like you have things sorted, didn't realise you can freeze banana's im just about to chuck some away, they are well past the ok to eat phase :o I need to keep on top of things and not waste them.
    When you freeze banana's how long after buying them do you do it?

    Soon as they go very brown and are def well past eating! I just freeze them in their skins. Take them out the freezer about 1/2 an hour before you need them, cut the end off with scissors and then squish into the cake mix! Also great processed with some orange juice for a lovely smoothie!:)

    Sorry if this is cheeky but I would love the recipe you use for choc banana muffins please :D I always freeze bananas and currently only make banana bread with them but would love a chocolatey change :T

    lol not cheeky at all! :) Actually I use my banana bread recipe but bake mix in muffin cases, works well! I just added a good tablespoon of cocoa to the mixture!
    Here is the recipe:-
    Banana bread
    (great for using up those over ripe bananas)

    3 very ripe bananas (almost walking) or use defrosted frozen bananas!
    pinch of salt (I don’t add this)
    6oz melted butter
    1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
    6 oz caster sugar
    1 egg
    9 - 10 oz plain flour

    Smash bananas (food processor is great for this recipe).

    Add remaining ingredients, mix together. Pour into 2 greased or paper lined 1lb loaf tins or 1 lined 2lb tin.

    Bake in moderate oven (180C/350F/Gas mark 4) for 45 minutes. Will also make as muffins, freezes well and is lovely sliced, toasted & dripping with melted butter. A good tablespoon of cocoa to the mix makes a lovely change!

    The instructions / recipe booklets are available on the panny website - free to download for anyone wanting breadmaker recipes.

    Mine doesn`t usually last too long but slice it and freeze it if you think it may go stale and just take out how many slices that you need from the freezer - keeps ages :D

    Must dash.

    Evening all

    Got this week's A*da delivery today and also spent about £10 at the local shops to try and set us up for the week.

    My total is up to £204.15 leaving me £15.85 until next Wednesday. I've tried to think of everything and am wondering what it is that I'll run out of first - what's going to get me!?
    Anyway - hoping for at least a couple of NSD's - I've just hidden half a packet of chocolate biscuits so some will be left for tomorrow! Getting devious!
    May Shopping Challenge. 10/5. Budget £310 Spent £118.25.. £191.75 left. So £9.13 a day.

    Just got back off holiday (was being fed by my mum and dad :) ) and had my first spend of the month yesterday. So far spent £43.89 out of my £130 budget. Going to have to come in on target this month as I've got to pay for lots of dental work this month :(
