Banana Date Muffins With Rose Petal Spice

What funny weather. Summer one day and wintery autumn weather the next. Good recipe for a cold, which little Loopity Lou has had for nearly a week, which means not much sleep for his mummy!

While little Loopity Lou was sleeping, his big brother and I did some baking. It was a nice rainy indoor day so we made Banana Date Muffins with Rose Petal Spice (I got the spice from Macro Whole Foods. It's to put into cakes & muffins and its fragrant sweet spices with rose petals smell like chai tea. Yum!).
I love this old mixer mum gave me. When I was a child, mum used the same mixer and I have many memories of birthday cakes with all sorts of ingredients put into it. It is still going strong - it came from an era when things where made to last.

My son loves cooking.......
.... and what's even better is when you get to eat what you've made while it is still hot. Yum!

Yum, they look good. And I love the sound of that rose petal spice, I'll have to look out for it to try.

Yummy!

My mixer is 32 years old - they were built to last for sure! DD wants to buy an old secondhand one - she doesn't like the look of the new ones!

Missed you at the Guild yesterday.
