Banana Custard Muffins

I hate old bananas.... i hate the smell I don't like touching them and yet I don't want to waste them... but now I am a wife I have to be all grown up and resourceful you see! So I went on the search for a banana recipe for my three moosh (yet not black bananas).
Sadly I couldn't find anything exciting due to my lack of other interesting ingredients... no macadamias or figs. No dates.. and certainly no chocolate chips!

So I made my own recipe up! And it was a success! Reviewers claim "The best muffins ever made", "no I will not share them with my friends."

So here is the recipe to my No-Share Banana Custard Muffins.

No Share Banana Custard muffins.


3 old bananas
1 1/4 cups self raising flour, sifted
1/2 cup of brown sugar
50gms butter, melted and cooled
1 egg
1/3 cup of milk
tbs of custard powder

custard filling:
1 tbs custard powder
1 tbs caster sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract


1. Make custard - mix sugar and powder in a pot, add enough milk to make a paste, turn the heat on gradually add more milk and the vanilla extract, bring to the boil then turn heat down to a simmer. Take of heat when it has thickened and put in a new cooler bowl.

2. Sift flour, custard powder and sugar together, make a well in the center.

3. Whisk milk, butter, eggs and mashed bananas with a fork in another bowl.

4. Fold mixture into the flour and sugar until well combined.

5. Fill 8 cupcake pans until 1/3 full and add a dollop of custard, then 1/3 more mixture.

6. Put into preheated 200 degrees celcius oven for 25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean:)

7. Eat them all and don't share them with your friends.


Delicious inside custard surprise!:)mmmm

The photograph based this one of that Gothic Painting with the pitchfork... yeah? this one:)

Front Page Front Page!

This front page pushed me over my 700 hearts goal on etsy! YAY!:) I have becoming disheartened... but the iphone covers are a hit:) hehe They are sooo fun to make so that is good:)

Bunny watch.

So i know this pic is a little blurry and hard to see, but i hope you can get this gist...
This is my beautiful Suki and she is on the bed. What is she doing?? She is not sleeping... she i watching, she does this every night, sometimes all night... not always... but some of the time... nearly every morning and just after bed time. She is watching out for her family, just making sure we are all safe from predators while we sleep, and then in the evening we watch for her (or so she thinks... we are just watching tv..:) )
So I just thought you might like to see my lovely guard bunny. If you surprise her she will thump at you.

Mothers Day - present for Mum:)

I got my mum's present ages ago... but thought i should probably make her something to go with her new mothers day brooch. So I made her a bag, the top one in the grey with the leaves. It's for her to take to the market to put her goodies in:) Mum deserves a new bag:) hehe

Then I liked it so much I made one for my etsy store! But different to mum's because that is her special bag. Only for my mum:) The orange one is called the "Brunch Bag" and you can see it here. :)

Vote For Me! Please:)

So I was very excited to here that my bamboo booties were included in an etsy voter thing for Handmade Babies!
You can vote for them! Here!
Even if you don't wanna vote for me, you should vote for a duster (Australian Etsy team:) Because we are so deserving of some recognition... we work so hard... and we live so far away from the rest of the world so our packages take so long to get there!
