Apple pie, apple tart, apple pudding or crumble, call it what you want, it’s an all-round favourite. There is a treasure trove of apple pie recipes around the world, but I keep coming back to this delicious combination of everyday ingredients.
The chocolate sauce is for days when you want to serve this as a dessert. Without the sauce, the crumpets are perfect for a Saturday morning breakfast, perhaps with a rasher of bacon, fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey.
This Buttermilk pudding with berry sauce is a very simple, yet special pudding. It really just requires you to mix, pour and bake. The buttermilk gives the pudding a soft, velvety texture and the berry sauce is the perfect balance to the almost sweet-tart flavour of the pudding. Make this soon to spoil family and friends.
Lemon and poppy seeds are a well-known combination, and these cupcakes add a zesty flair to any tea table or picnic basket. The fresh thyme gives a lovely botanical flavour to the cupcakes, making them a little more sophisticated. The ratio of lemon juice to icing sugar adds just enough acidity to the recipe to balance out the sweetness and rounds the cakes off beautifully.
How can I best describe this apple tart? Caramelised apple wedges with honey, a touch of lemon, cranberries and a delicate combination of spices. But that’s not it yet – it all sits on an almond and butter layer, wrapped in a light and crisp butter pastry. Absolutely delicious. This Pink Lady® apple tart is one of the best I have ever made (and eaten). Yes, it’s a bit of extra work, but oh, so worth it.
