The apple season is finally coming, and there are plenty of apples in the shops – and I can imagine many of you who are lucky enough to have apples in your gardens are enjoying every bit of it!
Yesterday I made this really yummy vegan apple cake with thinly sliced apples inside and on top, and of course with some freshly ground cardamom too.
While the cake was cooling I took the opportunity to clean out my wardrobe. I almost think it’s more important to clean our the wardrobe when autumn has come rather than spring.
The kitchen also got a bit of a touch up with some new baking tools from Kitchen Time: spatula and bowls from Rosti Mepal, pie form from Le Creuset and a mandolin from Kyocera. Thought I’d go with a red theme while I was at it!
