The apple harvest begins in August, so it’s not surprising that apples are one of the most popular kinds of fruit to eat at this time of year. This is all thanks to their sheer deliciousness, not to mention the vast array of varieties. What’s more, apples are packed with vitamins and are very healthy.
Apples make a great snack, lovely sauces or a tasty addition to more substantial dishes. The sweet but tart flavour really packs a punch in cakes and baked treats. When making cakes, we recommend using firm and more acidic apple varieties such as Boskoop, Elstar or Jonagold. Apple cake is an absolute classic, so it goes without saying that we’ve included it in our collection of recipes. Our Apple and walnut crumb cake is just the thing for autumn. The combination of apple and walnuts is a real taste sensation, while the buttery crumb topping is the perfect finishing touch. Our Apple and cinnamon pull-apart bread not only looks fabulous, but also tastes utterly heavenly – it’s a real hit on autumn days. Then there’s our Apple and red cabbage cake, which has a distinctly wintery taste to it. The red cabbage gives the dough an ideal consistency, ensuring that it doesn’t get too dry, while nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon give it all a note of spice. We hope you have lots of fun making our variations on apple cake!
