Banana Cake

I am keeping this post short and sweet...

I am in the midst of sifting through lots of receipts, stacks of paperwork that requires my immediate attention, papers that will eventually .... magically become $$$$ ....

Its TAX season, I need to lodge our taxes and get refunds as soon as possible :D

Breathe in... Breathe out....
I am sipping my cuppa with 2 slices of Spelt Banana Cake
....to help me through this boring yet must do tasks of sorting, labelling and clipping (or stapling as some call it) all those  fun looking papers!

Banana cake using spelt flour and buttermilk.
