AB, how did you sharpen the old blades?  Did you do it yourself or get a professional to do it.  I think my blades definitely need a sharpen!

I have a couple of the mini rectangular tins and use them often.  Banana bread is fantastic - it is just the right serving size (I have tried many banana bread recipes and can honestly recommend Tenina's version with Choc chips).

I pretty much make any cake recipe in it - lemon and blueberry loaf cakes, spiced apple cake, orange and poppy seed cake and apple, Ginger and honey cake all work out well.  They are a great size to take over to anyone who lives by themselves - they can freezes a couple and just defrost one whenever they feel like some cake.

Like cupcakes but much less fussy!

Apple Ginger and Honey Cakes

3 Large Granny Smith Apples
110 grams butter
220g brown sugar
2 eggs
11/2 tsp powdered ginger
225g whole meal spelt flour (or just use plain white flour)
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp warmed honey


Peel and core 2 apples.  Add to thermomix and pulse TURBO twice.  Set aside.

Add butter and brown sugar and combine speed 5 / 30 secs.  Turn it down to speed 2 and add eggs one at a time through the lid.

Add flour, ginger and baking powder and combine speed 5 / 10 secs.

Add apples and KNEAD for 30 secs.  Finish combining with spatula.

Spoon into mini loaf tins (makes 10-12) and place a thin slice of the 3rd apple on each of the loaves.  Brush with the warmed honey.

Bake at 160 fan forced for 20 mins or until cooked.

This recipe is converted from a recipe which was in Homestyle NZ a few years back.

This is still a favourite recipe of mine. I'm making a batch for the Mothers Day morning tea and thought I might try a honey and vanilla variation which has turned out delicious!

I reduced the sugar to 70g and when I added in the eggs, I included 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla paste.  I left out the lemon rind from the recipe.  It's a beautiful variation for winter.  I think it would also work great if you swapped the honey for maple syrup - I'll be trying that another day!

I'm so pleased to see this cake is getting a work out. It's so delicious but I love it because it is such an unfussy cake and goes so well with a cup of tea or coffee.

I'm very sorry to my SS as I have been missing in action and haven't posted about my beautiful present. We have moved house for the second time in six months and the removalists didn't show up!  Very stressful 😠😠 but we are in our beautiful new home now and all is good.

I opened my SS whilst I was packing - it is a gorgeous green floral cotton dressing gown - just perfect for summer.  I absolutely love it and will post pics once I have unpacked my camera. Thank you very much SS, you have wonderful taste 😀😀😀

I love seeing what everyone else has received.
