It is just so quintessentially English to partake in elevenses! That little drink and snack that we indulge in between breakfast and lunch, keeps us going and gives us a lift. In the cold, grey month of January I for one need a bit of comfort food (in moderation of course!!). I am therefore wholeheartedly supporting Anchor's campaign to bring back elevenses!!
At 11am the kids are at school, I've spent 2 hours running around after Freddy/ blogging/ shopping/doing a bit of housework and I need to sit down to recharge myself! A rest and a treat restores the calm and gives me the boost I need to carry on with a busy day! Anchor want to empower those people like me, who feel the need to enjoy a mid morning snack, to embrace the concept of elevenses in all its glory.
To help get the Eleveneses ball rolling, we've taken to the kitchen to whip up some delicious Banoffee Muffins. They are an indulgent treat that embodies the joy of elevenses.

1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda
