One of my four favourite seasons ….


The woods are brightened up by  berries, the air is crisp and fresh and…

Apples and Blackberries are back!


Apple and blackberry cake

300 gr plain flour

2 tsp baking powder

100 gr butter

100 gr sugar

2 eggs

1 cup milk

3 apples: here I used 1 Bramley and 2 small red ones – cox I believe…)

some blackberries

2 tsp cinnamon mixed with 1 tsp muscovado sugar

Preheat the oven to 180˚C

Grease and flour a 25 cm cake tin or a skillet

Peel and cut the apples the way you like them – I did eights.

Mix the flour, baking powder and sugar. Melt the butter. Mix eggs and milk and add to the dry ingredients with the melted butter. Stir and make sure there are no lumps of flour.

Pour in the prepared tin, stick the apples in the batter, sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top and bake for about 30 minutes

It keeps well for at least 5 days.
