I saw this and wondered if any grans admit to this banana bread blooper?

Oh dear, it looks a bit like a very porous house brick. I wonder what it tastes like? The proof of the pudding is in the eating, as my dear old mum used to say.

gringrin. If you’ve any enemies (though I’m sure you haven’t!) you could grind it down and feed it to them. ☠️

I do find nowadays that when I lose my glasses they could be in the bin, in the freezer - outside in the peg box was a recent discovery - but so far I haven't managed to bake them. grin

I found this pic on twitter. I didn't bake it but wondered if any gran might have made such a spectacle of a cake.

Or, as they say today lovebeige, “the proof is in the pudding”. Really?
