What better way to use the shiny green fruits than to bake with them? Have a look to see how I got on over a course of two days, making and baking.
Day One - Saturday
With a mountain of apples to use, I googled for apple recipes. Then I realised I had just one egg - disaster! So, the googling became "apple cake no egg". And there were so many to choose from?
I settled with these two in the end...
Chocolate and Apple Muffins
Find the recipe here - you NEED to try these!!!!
The recipe for this cake is here. This cake was the first time I'd used a ring tin... definitely let it cool completely before trying to get it out the tin - my cake's a little delicate, but very tasty. Love a bit of cinnamon! I didn't have any cloves but it didn't make any difference. I love the fact there's apple juice in this recipe. S
And finally, stewed apples. The third 'bake' wasn't actually a bake... I stewed a huge saucepan of apples for breakfast. And dessert for dinner. Probably breakfast again!
They're so tasty eaten with yoghurt, so good. All you have to do is gentle boil them down with some sugar and a little water. Make sure the mixture doesn't dry out.
Day Two - Sunday
Today's challenge was to make an apple cheesecake.
I found a recipe for a cheesecake (online, of course!), which needs to be baked. I've only ever done cheesecakes which need chilling to set before, so this would be something new, and would make our meager fishcake Sunday dinner a bit more beefed up. Well, apple'd up!
This recipe is called 'Easiest' Apple Cheesecake, but watch out - there's three portions of sugar required, don't just take a quick look and think you only need the first 100g.
It is a little dark on top, I'd like it a bit lighter ideally, but nibbling a crumble or two which dropped off when I release the bottom of the tin, it tastes amazing. Success!
Still got five apples left....
Thanks to the unwitting donors of our apples!!!!A
