We’ve had such rotten weather here in Gloucestershire recently – it’s been more like autumn than high summer. So, if like me you’re in need of some warming fodder then you just must get your hands on this book: Cinnamon, spice & warm apple pie.
It is amazing! I spotted it in a shop a little while back – I didn’t buy it as it felt like the wrong time of year to be buying a book which has ‘comforting baked fruit desserts for chilly days’ on the front cover. But then I thought, oh why wait! and boom I ordered it! Arrived last week, yippeee!
I’ve not had the occasion to make anything yet, but the recipes sound delicious. It’s split into sections:
- crumbles & streusels
- cobblers & more
- bettys & crisps
- clafoutis, slumps & puddings
- pies, tarts & strudels
- dessert cakes
I’ve never even heard of a ‘slump’ before but mmm they look tasty! The photos are mouth-watering and it’s been written in a really lovely way, and (this may sound weird) uses such an appealing font! You’ll see what I mean if you ‘look inside’ on amazon. I hope the puds taste as good as they look and sound.
Just realised that was a bit of a book review, albeit a brief one – not had to do one of those since school!
In other news, my KitchenAid cook book arrived today – I got it free for sending back the guarantee on the mixer, how good is that? Had a quick flick through and it looks fab. I am going to have to get another shelf for them at this rate – cookery books everywhere! Brrrrilliant!
