My Boyfriend Barfed In My Handbag

$26.00 NZD

The author of the hit column “Ask a Clean Person” offers a hilarious and practical guide to cleaning up life’s little emergencies

Life is filled with spills, odors, and those oh-so embarrassing stains you just can’t tell your parents about. And let’s be honest: no one is going to ask Martha Stewart what to do when your boyfriend barfs in your handbag.

Thankfully, Jolie Kerr has both staggering cleaning knowledge and a sense of humor. With signature sass and straight talk, Jolie takes on questions ranging from the basic—how do I use a mop? —to the esoteric—what should I do when bottles of homebrewed ginger beer explode in my kitchen? My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag proves that even the most nightmarish cleaning conundrums can be solved with a smile, the right supplies, and a little music.

SAMPLE RECIPE

Banana Cakes (pictured bottom left)

 

Ingredients

This is our interpretation of the Edmonds Cookbook Banana Cake. We make it as a double-layer cake sandwiched together with gooey caramel and mascarpone.

 

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

125g unsalted butter, softened

¾ cup caster sugar

2 eggs

3 cups mashed banana

1 tsp baking soda

4 tbsp hot milk

1 cup walnuts

 

To assemble

½ cup Caramel (see page 161)

¼ cup mascarpone

1 recipe Cream Cheese Icing (see page 158)

chopped walnuts or banana chips, to decorate

 

Method

 

Preheat oven to 160ºC. Grease two 6-hole Texas muffin trays or two 23cm cake tins and line the bottom and sides with baking paper cut to fit exactly.

Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and set aside.

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter on a low speed until light and creamy.

Slowly add sugar and continue to beat on low speed until light in colour and fluffy.

Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition, and making sure to incorporate each egg before adding the next. Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula. With the mixer on low speed add the banana.

Dissolve baking soda in hot milk.

Fold flour mixture and milk into the banana mixture in three equal measures. Lastly, fold in walnuts.

Divide mixture evenly between prepared cake tins and bake for 20–25 minutes for small cakes or 45 minutes for large cakes, or until the tops spring back when touched lightly and a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the middle.

Let cakes cool completely in tins before turning out.

If making small cakes, carefully cut them in half horizontally. To assemble the cakes, spread Caramel over bottom layer, then spread a thin layer of mascarpone over the top. Place second cake layer on top. Spread with a thick layer of Cream Cheese Icing. Drizzle with extra Caramel and decorate with walnuts or banana chips.

Kitchen Notes:

Place in an airtight container and store in a cool place (not the refrigerator) for up to three days. The banana flavour gets better with age at room temperature.
