Apple Cider Scones with Cinnamon – An Autumnal Sunday Breakfast Treat

Apple Cider Scones with Cinnamon

Scones | 25th September 2018 | By

As I was looking out of the rain splattered window early Sunday morning, my eye caught a rather large pile of apples that had fallen into our garden from a neighbour’s tree. Initially, I was tempted to ignore them, but my dislike of waste got the better of me. So, out into the pouring rain I went, in my nightdress, to forage for some of the less battered ones. Here’s what I came up with: apple cider scones made with wholemeal spelt flour and flavoured with cinnamon.

Salads, Sides, Spring | 13th March 2018 | By

It didn’t feel anything like Spring on the 1st March when the Beast from the East was visiting, but things have calmed down a lot since then. The birds are singing, I’ve seen bees buzzing and daffodils are standing up to attention. As the sap is rising, what could be better than a bit of spring slaw to celebrate the event? Oh, it’s also a nice way to get you on track for a health-giving ten-a-day

Granny’s Apple Pie with Wholemeal Spelt and a Food Processor Giveaway

Granny's Apple Pie

Calling this Granny’s apple pie is perhaps a bit far fetched. My Grandmother made the best pastry ever and wonderful apple pies to boot, but I very much doubt she’d have even heard of spelt and she’d never have used wholemeal flour. She also made her pastry by hand. This pastry was made using my new VonShef 1000W food processor. Read on to find out how to enter the giveaway for a chance of winning one for yourself.

Green Goddess Smoothie

Since acquiring a decent blender, we’ve become complete smoothie converts. We have them for breakfast more often than not. It’s a great way to use our kefir and other healthful ingredients. However, it wasn’t until BRITA asked me if I’d like to make one of their recipes and try out their new water filter jug, that I made a kefir-free smoothie. This dairy free ginger green goddess smoothie turned out to be an utter delight.

Apple Hazelnut Spelt Rye Sourdough Bread

Autumn, Bread & Buns, Vegan | 7th October 2016 | By

As you may have gathered by now, I do like to cook and bake with the seasons. When I made my latest Suma order I had some autumnal baking very much in mind. I still have apples from my mother’s garden and although the wildlife got all of our cobnuts this year, hazelnuts are very much on my radar. So, I made an apple and hazelnut spelt rye sourdough bread loaf.
