I love autumn flavours. The food has a touch of spice which really warms you up and makes you feel all cosy. I’ll miss all the vibrant tastes of the fresh fruit from summer, but with a new season, comes new food. And one of my favourites are in their prime this time of year – The mighty apple!
There are so many different varieties of apples, and it amazes me how the same fruit can taste so widely different. There are sweet versions, sour versions and they’re all perfect for different things. Specific apples are used for eating, making applesauce, smoothies, but most importantly… cake!!
I love a slice of freshly baked, spiced apple cake. It’s moist, yet perfectly flavoured, and has just the right amount of mixed spice to really bring out the flavour.
