  4. I really like strawberries…
    super cute and tickling post.

  5. This looks so delicious..I think.. I am going to try this at home.. Do you have a substitute for eggs..

    • If you can’t have eggs you can do the following:- 1 Egg = 2 tbsp. flour 1/2 tbsp. butter 1/2 tsp. baking powder 2 tsp. water. Also,
      Condensed milk is a good substitute for eggs. Use a half-tin condensed milk for every 2.5 cups of flour used in the recipebut in this instance it will be too sweet.
      You can add a cup of soy milk instead of an egg.My solution would be the following:- One banana and half a cup of soy milk. I cannot vouch for this as I have not done it myself though. Thank Surbi, I hope it works…it truly is very yummy xx

  6. Beautiful on the palate and on the eye 🙂

  8. Looks delicious! I should go buy one. Ha! I’ve been so busy with difficulties lately that I don’t have time to do the things I might like to do if I had time to think of what I’d rather be doing. Now I know what I’d like to be eating. Tsk tsk. I’ll never be skinny. Love to you and thank you for inspiring me again.
