I love baking, I would happily spend all day in the kitchen baking away. Today I made lemon curd tarts (for the second day in a row...they go so fast in my house!) and banana bread. I decided to mix the bread up a bit by adding pineapple and coconut since the other day when I made it I made it plain.
These are both super simple and super delicious recipes, I hope you enjoy!

Lemon Curd Tarts:



3 large eggs
1/3c lemon juice
3/4c castor sugar
56g room temp butter - cut into small cubes
1T lemon zest.

In a stainless steel bowl over simmering water whisk eggs, lemon juice and sugar. Whisk until mixture thickens and becomes pale, it takes about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and strain to remove lumps. This is important, even if it looks like there are no lumps there will be!
Whisk butter in until it is melted, then zest.
Put into pastry shells, I use frozen sweet pastry, but these would be extra special if you made the pastry dough yourself!

Banana Bread with Pineapple and coconut:



4 ripe bananas - mashed
1/3c plain yogurt
3/4c sugar (I use part raw part brown)
1 egg - beaten
1 - 2t spices of your choice (cinnamon and nutmeg for me)
1t vanilla essence
1t baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/4c flour
1/4c coconut
About 1/4c chopped/crushed tinned pineapple

Preheat over to 175 degrees c.
Mix yogurt into mashed banana in a large mixing bowl. Add sugar, egg, vanilla and spices. Sprinkle salt and baking soda over the top and mix in. Sift the flour in, then stir in coconut and pineapple.
Bake for about an hour. About half way through I glazed the bread with pineapple juice, gives it a nice crunchy brown crust.
