NaPoWriMo 2020 - Day 1

Baking Vegan Lemon Drizzle Cake
(In the time of Corona)

Pre heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
Oil a 1lb loaf tin and line it with baking parchment.
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and lemon zest in a bowl…

Shit no lemons in the fruit bowl.
Over ripe bananas chide me.
“Waste not want not in times of Corona”.

Imagining the war time spirit of my Nana’s.
Who’d counsel when life gives you no lemons, make no drizzle,
Or you can’t cry over un-spilled juice.

Instead I make banana bread
With chocolate chips, comfort, frugality and making do.
All in one loaf tin.
