AUTUMN BAKING INSPIRATION
CLASSIC CARROT CAKE
Something about carrot cake just speaks of autumn. It could be the toasty nuts, the spicy flavour or maybe the colour of carrots that makes us think of changing leaves. Whatever it is, one thing is for certain, and that is that it’s delicious. It’s a really forgiving cake to make because it remains so moist and with a layer of rich cream cheese icing it really is a slice of heaven.
APPLE AND MACADAMIA MUFFINS WITH STREUSEL TOPPING
Imagine a warm, homebaked apple pie crossed with a fresh muffin… sound good? Well, they are! These muffins contain chunks of soft baked apple and crunchy macadamia nuts and are topped with a crisp, buttery streusel. Divine with a cup of Rooibos tea.
GIANT OATMEAL COOKIES WITH WHITE CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE
These cookies were made for dunking. Delicious oaty flavour baked to perfection and drizzled with melted white chocolate, roll on rainy days!
PLUM AND MARZIPAN GALETTE WITH ALMOND PASTRY
Think you don’t like marzipan? Think again. This galette pays homage to the beautiful stone fruit of the autumn season. The plums become sticky and sweet when baked and are the perfect topping for this crumbly almond galette base. Serve with a scoop of your favourite vanilla ice cream or a spoonful of clotted cream.
