First up are my apple crumb bars. Inspired by the blackberry crumb bars and using Smitten Kitchen's recipe as a base, I made some very seasonal treats to take into work. Instead of using a similar filling though, I sliced the bramley apples up and mixed them up with 2 tablespoons brown sugar and cinnamon.
Next, I made these apple galette's, after finding the recipe here on Joy of Baking. They have a frangipane filling which makes them a bit more sophisticated than an apple pie or apple turnover I think. However, as you can see mine are slightly 'high baked' as my mother calls it! They caught slightly at the edges when I was grilling them, but they tasted lovely and not burnt.
Yummy yummy. As you read this, I will be in Edinburgh with Scott! God bless scheduled posts though. Oh I also want to mention the We Love Baking facebook page, set up by Tate & Lyle. I was kindly sent some sugars by the kind folks at Tate & Lyle (I always use theirs anyway so was flattered by the offer! Plus, fairtrade ftw!) The facebook page is a great place for bakers to share their goodies, look at this nail varnish bottle cake!
Barry M, my fave!
