Welcome to Group A’s first posting session for 2015! I’m so excited to be participating in the Secret Recipe Club for another year – and can’t wait to see how many awesome things I’ll get to make this year. My first assigned blog of the year is Claire K Creations which is run by the fantastic Claire C. Her bog is packed with all sorts of goodies running from the savory to sweet and healthy to decadent. I decided to pick something in the middle, going with her Chocolate Banana Cake, figuring that the addition of bananas made it a “healthier” dessert option – I mean that’s how this all works, right??? I love that the recipe is inspired by one from a book and while I haven’t read that Jane Green novel, I have enjoyed a few of her works. I did screw up a bit with the recipe as I totally missed that the chocolate was to be melted, and I totally had already folded in my chocolate chips by that point. However it still turned out fantastic!
Oh, did I mention Claire is also an Aussie? Another awesome part of her blog was finding out about all the local treats which my little sister will be exploring in just a few months when she heads south for her 6 month (or 18month) adventure in the Land of Oz.
Quick heads up – this is only 1 of 3 blog posts that I have going up today, so be sure to check all of them out!
