Autumns in the air and in the kitchen

I love autumn it’s my favourite time of the year!

Leaves are falling everywhere, the temperature turns slightly cooler and there’s the wonderful smell of coal fires in the air.

Autumn also is a wonderful time of year for baking as comfort food takes over lighter meals and a nice sweet treat is always loved in front of the TV with a warm mug of your favourite drink!

There is also an abundance of fruits which always makes a great start to baking. With this is mind I thought I would create a beautiful moist cake with the addition of some delicious cooking apples and a hint of almond.

In terms of prettiness I admit it is not a piece of art but what it lacks in sight it overcompensates for in flavour! Autumn is here so fire up your oven and bake a little comforting delight!
