TO READ. TO EAT. TO WATCH.

TO READ.

Our Maman team have gathered together the books we are loving and can’t seem to put down. We hope this gives you some inspiration and potentially a new book to add to your Wishlist. 
                  
The Improbability of Love by Hannah Rothschild
"Brilliantly written with a real feel of detail involved. A combination of a love story and a “who dunnit” mystery that probes the true value of art."
From Kate
Happiness by Heather Harpham
"This is a beautifully written memoir. It’s had me up all night, reading to find out what happens next. There’s heartbreak, joy, and lots of love. Trust me, have your tissues ready!"
From Emma
Women’s Wellness Wisdom by Dr Libby
"I have found this book has so many useful health and well-being facts which have helped me know the ins and outs of my body."
From Jordan

TO EAT.

After much testing and investigation, we have decided that nothing can beat the classic Edmonds Cookbook Banana Loaf. 

Bake and ENJOY!!

Ingredients

1 ¾ cups Champion self-raising flour
¼ teaspoon Edmonds baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup sugar
2 eggs
¼ cup milk
75g butter, melted
1 cup mashed banana
    Sift flour, baking soda and salt into a bowl. Mix in sugar. In another bowl beat eggs. Stir in milk, butter and banana. Mix quickly into dry ingredients, stirring until ingredients are just combined. Spoon into a greased and lined 22 cm loaf tin. Bake at 180 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes. Keep checking your loaf as every oven is different. Leave in tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.
