Bake It Off
If you’re having a party, or just want to bake for the sake of baking, take your opportunity while the fruit is still fresh. Whip up a treat perfectly served on some of our disposable party plates to make it extra eco-friendly!
‘Tis the Season
The approach of autumn means the end of summer and time for harvest. This means a whole new season of fruit for us to get creative with; pears, pumpkins and carrots a plenty. These delicious fruits go well with traditional autumnal flavours like cinnamon and ginger, sit nicely with nuts like walnuts and almonds, and are especially nice topped with steaming hot, creamy custard and a few berries.
If you can’t wait to get in the kitchen, then we urge you to do so! We have compiled a few ideas to get those creative juices flowing, and our mouths are watering just thinking about it.
This deliciously sweet dough is rolled with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Sometimes coming loaded with sultanas, pecans or walnuts, the cinnamon swirl is especially mouth-watering if topped with an icing glaze and served warm from the oven. Mmm.
Maple Walnut Cake
Maple-walnut is a traditional flavour combination, made popular in America and Canada because of their love of all things maple syrup. Delightfully sweet and maple-y to the palate, the nutty texture adds depth of flavour, and the light, moist sponge combines for a flavour sensation. Go crazy and top with more syrup and nuts for that extra kick.
Carrot cake is a well-known favourite, across the globe. Dense in consistency, rich in flavour and packed full of carrot-y goodness, with as much or as little dried fruit and nuts as you want to throw in. Mix up the traditional cake and instead bake as individual cupcakes, topped with cream cheese frosting and/or icing, along with a cute, mini icing carrot or whole walnut. This recipe also tastes sensational with pistachio.
Bread and Butter Pudding
With the colder weather comes warmer desserts with lashings of custard. This bread pudding does not disappoint; buttered bread, dried fruit or nuts, egg custard and bake to perfection. Add vanilla and nutmeg for a hint of complexity and serve hot with berry compote and delicious homemade custard.
Pear, Ginger and Sultana Crumble
An alternative to apples, this pear and sultana crumble has such variation of texture and flavour that your mouth will explode. The kick of ginger in the crumble and the combination of pear and sultana is second to none – top with salted caramel sauce and a dollop of sour cream for a mouthful of heaven this autumn.
This sweet-tasting American classic is a big winner in autumn. Delight your guests with a smooth pumpkin tart, flavoured with nutmeg, cloves and ginger to truly encapsulate the essence of the season. Serve with maple walnut ice cream for a show-stopping dessert.
This one’s for reminiscing adults and kids alike: encasing whole apples in hot caramel and dipping in nuts, sugar strands and sweets. Easy to make, and keeping kids entertained while eating fruit has never been this much fun. It can alternatively be coated in chocolate – yum!
