Urges

Sometimes, bloggie friends, you just have to give in to your urges!

Mine came at 11pm yesterday.

And here it is all ready to eat at 5 minutes past midnight!

Yep, I had the urge to bake me a banana cake with dried fruit before bedtime!

Charlie says: I had the urge to sleep in my box with my toys.

Cheers everyone!

I love Banana bread, esp if it's still warm.

Charlie looks pleased.

Plain Jane said...

I had the urge to make chocolate chip cookies and eat the dough...and I did. But not very much. I did keep it in moderation.

Cheers!!!!

Brian said...

Oh my, I'll bet it smells soooooo good too! Wake up Charlie, you're missing it!

Stephen Tremp said...

Charlie looks like a snug bug in a rug. Maybe he snuck a big piece of your fruit bread before turning in for the night.

The Words Crafter said...

Oh! You are so cruel!!!! I ADORE any sort of banana bread/cake. YUM! Hey, it was totally worth it, right?!!

Katnip Lounge said...

At least you didn't feel the need to play with Charlie's nippy mouse!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

And I bet you were both happy!

Karen Jones Gowen said...

I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw your post title LOL! That cake looks really good, yummy. I've made banana cake before but not put dried fruit in it. I bet it tastes something like Christmas fruitcake? Which I love! Must try this!

Bossy Betty said...

I TOTALLY understand!

klahanie said...

Aha, and I had the urge at gone 3 in the morning to read your post and then go and have a bowl of 'Special K' :)

Ann said...

You only live once! Whats a banana cake between friends.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

I've done this so many times. I always keep a box mix of streusel cake in the pantry just so I can whip one together when I get the urge (usually late at night!) That banana cake looks yummy!

Lynda R Young said...

did you turn into a gremlin and scare Charlie because you ate after midnight? hehe

Margo Berendsen said...

I come up with all sorts of yummy and fattening things to eat in the wee hours of the night - to reward me for staying up late to write, of course!!!! I love to make shortbread, cheese biscuits, frosting. Yup. Don't even need the cake or the cookies to frost.

At least banana bread with dried fruit is somewhat healthy!

Summer Ross said...

I like banana bread- but not fruit or nuts in it other then the nanas.

Au and Target said...

Mine is for a vodka :-)

Niki said...

Oh yum, I hope you put plenty of butters on it :) all dribbly and hot.

Brigid said...

And why not? Urges can be good, Charlie looks like he is having fun.

Ellie said...

Madeleine said...

Mmmm, I might just pop round and pinch a slice. Borage has urges to steel my pen topper to play with and Tarragon has urges to sleep in her bed too :O)

lupie said...

Theresa Milstein said...

How did it come out?

I can't eat that close to bedtime or I get a stomachache and have whacky dreams.

Hope you're having a great Tuesday!

Theresa Milstein said...

Hit the "comment" button before I mentioned how adorable Charlie is snuggled in that box.

Manzanita said...

ooowww... My favorite. You are the baker. I never bake. I'm terrible at it. Wish I was your neighbor.

That is such an adorable box for Charlie and he loves it.
Love and Peace..

laughingwolf said...

surrender to those urges, kit, resistance is futile! :P lol

Hart Johnson said...

Well at least you can enjoy it for a while, eh? I love pumpkin bread. I should probably learn how to make it...

fairyhedgehog said...

If you feel the urge to bake brownies and post them to me, then please go ahead!

notesfromnadir said...

That banana bread looks so good! Did you add raisins? Do you add walnuts?

I wonder how many toys Charlie has stashed away in there?! :)

Katie Mills said...

lol, well sometimes its best to just let your urges take hold. Other times, not so much. LIke when I decided after a couple rum n cokes that it was early enough to color and cut my own hair...

Jenny Woolf said...

Banana cake ... yummy!

Ann Dziemianowicz said...

Oh my goodness I could go for a bite of that banana cake! Yum. Do you deliver! ;)

Charlie I like your lil' box. You look like you are in a tiny boat. Very cute.

I may give in to my urge to have lunch!

the writing pad said...

Ooh that cake looks good ... especially for a midnight feast, and even more especially to someone on a diet ...
BTW, Charlie really suits his house!
All best

Jayne said...

And I bet it was delicious, no matter the time! Charlie looks very nice and comfy in his box. :)

Wow baking at 11 pm - you REALLY wanted that banana cake! We are more like Charlie and have the urge to sleep at our house!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, first diggles, now banana cake. These mouth-watering posts are going to put weight on us, even though we're not eating any of it. :)

William Kendall said...

Banana cake is pure heaven.

Oskar said...

Sounds delicious!

Nubbin wiggles,

The Teacher's Pets said...

If I had an urge for something to eat I wouldn't be as fancy as you were; I would just make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich instead. I am not a cook by any stretch of the imagination but good for you to bake something delicious right when you needed it!

LTM said...

YUM! That cake looks fantastic. And I'm giggling at Charlie. Snoozie~ :D <3

Susan Kane said...

That happens to all of us, so feel no shame. Eat the bread, feel the warmth, and guilt can be ignored.
