I'm Lliving In Shame...Baking Shame!

Banana bread. The least said about them the better.
These taste great, but like Mama, as mentioned in the above video, they look a mess.

Mini Baked Berry Cheesecakes
7oz cream cheese
2oz caster sugar
2 eggs
1tbsp custard powder
grated rind of a lemon
vanilla extract
3oz of berries of your choice

Preheat the oven at 180c gas 4
In a large mixing bowl beat together the cream cheese, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and lemon rind. Spoon the mixture in a baking tin.
Liquidise the berries, add sugar to the fruit if you prefer and swirl a spoon  of the fruit puree into the centre of each cheesecake
Bake for 20 mins or until the smoke alarm goes off.

    1. I like your avatar picture, did you make the bird come closer to you by making little pssp pssp pssp noises?

    2. Hell, no! That was a pet.If you didn't have something for it you'd better get your skates on!(A friend rescued some chicks from a road accident and this one returned next season with his mate.Great fun)

  2. No matter how she tried she always looked a mess.

    1. 'Came a telegram, Mama passed away while making homemade jam' *Cackles* They don't write lyrics like that anymore.

  3. I'm thinking a Berry Cheesecake (or two) would be really good hot out of the oven with some butter on top.

    1. When I first took them out of the oven they had risen like soufles, a triumph, I thought, until I saw them deflate and sink before my very eyes. A dollop of clotted cream perhaps, but butter...butter!

  4. Yep. A preserve based death is always good basis for a song lyric. Still, she could sing any old shit and make it sound good.
    I'd layer all the cheesecakes together with marscapone and then eat the lot in front of the cat who recently ate her way through a fruit cake and then chucked it back up.

    1. I toyed with the idea of varnishing the banana bread, the one in the foreground that looks like a sleeping fox and turning it into a brooch for an elderly relative.

      There's Diana singing her heart out about the demise of her dear old Mama whilst her two backing singers are seen singing and dancing without a care in the world. I don't blame Diana for getting rid em. Callous bastards.

  5. These are no competition for Norma's Salted Ding Dong.
