Monday Meal Ideas: Baking with apples

Apples are in season right now so what better time to grab some and use them to eat or bake with? There’s nothing like a perfect apple is there? Full of juice, crispy and crunchy and packed with flavour! And there’s nothing like baking with them either: matched with cinnamon and spices, they scream our comfort and joy when baked in a crumble or cake. Here are some of my favourite ways to use them in baking:

Apple & Rhubarb crumble
Yoghurt cake with apple & cinnamon topping
Sticky Apple & Cinnamon Tea Cake
Apple Crumble Slice
Apple & Caramel Hand pies
Wild Apple Caramel crumble

How’s your week ahead looking? We are all limping to the end of term 1, I know I say that at the end of every term but I really REALLY mean it this term. Everyone is exhausted and cranky so we will just put one foot in front of the other and just get on with it I think. Daisy finished Thursday afternoon, the other two on Friday and first thing Saturday morning we hit the road for the farm for a few days to spend some time with Rob’s Dad and step mum and completely chill OUT. Oh man, it will be sweet.

Hope that you all have a great week ahead – enjoy the holidays if you have them and if you are like us, well dig deep, we can do it! Have a good one friends x


  1. Go team! I’m so glad to be on holidays but am trying my best to relax and not think about the marking I need to do before school returns. RELAX RELAX. All will be right once I’ve found a good book to devour!
