This is the recipe I use for making banana cake on a fairly regular basis. Its extremely easy and gives good results, which makes it perfect for us guys who are a bit fearful of treading into the kitchen to have a stab at baking!
You will need these ingredients:
125g of butter
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla essence (the real stuff, not the imitation junk)
2 mashed bananas (preferably over-ripe. The blacker the better)

I got myself out on the bike today... Home sick from work with a migraine so it was a very short stint on the bike - had to get home in time to vomit in the relative comfort of my own bathroom (gorgeous weather today but damn it's bright for a migraine).
I also took myself over to CycleWorx on Port Road (I'm soft, I drove - air conditioning and tinted windows were essential) where I bought my bike just over 3 years ago. I love the guys there. They remembered me (after ~1.5yrs) and…Continue
Well, thats 3 weeks of my non weight bearing (want to rip my hair out from frustration) period down, 3 weeks to go.
Have an outpatient appt next week and I'm assuming they'll do more xrays to see how its all healing.
hopefully the news is good. I've had so many xrays lately I'm surprised I don't glow in the dark.
I will quiz as many doctors as I can to get a rough idea on how long my recovery will take cause at the moment, I'm a bit in the dark. The sooner I'm back on the…Continue
Will be really brief tonight as I'm stuffed and need a day or two to pull together photos and stats for final report which I will post either tomorrow night or Wednesday night.
Woke up this morning to the realization that today was day 8, our last day. We left the Meningie Caravan Park just after 7:30 with a good weather forecast. Seemed pretty chilly to start, but we tapped along at a good speed north from Meningie.
Our first scheduled stop was…Continue
As I sit and ponder.......sounds corny, but as tonight is our last night away, it is impossible not to ponder on what has been an amazing time both on the bike and off. We're at the Meningie Lake Albert Caravan Park and tomorrow we make our way back to Victoria Square.
We left Kingston this morning a bit later than normal, some of us struggled to get out of bed today. Our journey was 147kms at an average of 26.2kms/h. Wasn't a hard day, but then again we have done this 7 days in a…Continue
Today I had another opportunity to race with a professional triathlete. Matty White, pro Ironman competitor and Adelaide's own was competing in the final race of the JT cycles Triathlon series.
Triathlon allows people of all abilities to compete side by side with people from elite to first timers....No egos (well they might be put away for the day), and no requirement for the high-end equipment (although it does help and nice to have).
Sure I suffer severe…Continue
After reading about more cyclists being hit, I feel compelled to write this...
The thing that riles me up the most is what happens to the motorist.
I have multiple fractures due to some idiot breaking the road rules. I'm in a wheelchair for a while, had to defer uni, I'll need extensive rehab, have massive scars, will get arthritis early in life, may have permanent loss of function in my arm and leg depending on how I recover, can't do state titles, uni games or nationals in…Continue
Met up with a few mates at the Tower Hotel this morning. Weather didnt look too bad, except for a little fog up in the hills. Met Angus also at the bottom of Norton Summit :D
Starting up Norton Summit it became gradually colder and colder as we ascended and began to slightly dirzzle. Thought we would just cruise up Norton Summit as didn't want to waste all our energy before reaching Mt Lofty.
At the top of Norton Summit it was quite coolish, but not to bad…Continue
Tonights blog will be a bit briefer that previous ones, mainly due to the fact that I'm stuffed and we're running a bit late from dinner with some locals....and...I still need to wash and dry my lycra! (or should I say, make sure that my minions have completed their tasks for the night - well, I DO make the coffee!)
This morning we set off from Millicent at 7:30 with a positive frame of mind. The forecasts were for SSE winds and we were heading NNW, so it should…Continue
Today was my first adventure interstate for a ride. The Great Ocean & Otway Classic Ride is limited to 3,500 riders. The morning started at 7:30am... chilly and overcast. In the first hour it became windy and wet and cold. The weather did cheer up a bit from Lorne back along the Great Ocean Road to Torquay.
The ride was very well organised, with marshals…Continue
After a hellish day yesterday, we all woke with a bit of trepidation about what today might hold. We were scheduled for another 150+km day and the weather forecasts weren't looking all that good,
For me last night was disturbed and restless. I made the mistake of not going to sleep before 'my brother from another mother' (Smudge). Not wanting to make light of recent natural disasters, but if there was a richter scale in our cabin last night, the township of Portland would've been…Continue
This morning we set off from Peterborough at 7:30am. It was cool, but calm and dry. There had been a shower or two earlier, but Smudge (Keith Martin) Matthew assured us that our luck with the weather was going to continue. How wrong he was! A km out of Peterborough the heavens opened up and although most of us didn't trust Smudge Martin (why would you!) and had worn light shower jackets, it wasn't long and we were soaked through.
Our plan was to have morning coffee at Warnambool…Continue
He is fixing more than 100bikes a day. He already has fixed over 1000bikes after the disaster two weeks ago.
When Japan got hit by theearthquake, the Tsunami…Continue
Thanks for all the encouraging comments, texts and tweets over the last few days. We've been blown away by the support we've had. Today we had a bus load of tourists pass our donation tin around to support us. They'd passed us a couple of times during the morning - I swear they thought we were mad! Some of the tourists couldn't comprehend that we were riding a distance greater than the breadth of their home country. It's also been really encouraging to know that we have so many fellow…Continue
