I’ve had the most horrible cold and it’s gone on for nearly two weeks now. As a result, my body has been craving healing foods. Ginger is a wonderful spice for alleviating soar throats and general bunged upness. Earlier this week, with Bonfire Night fast approaching, my thoughts inevitably turned to gingerbread. The result of my deliberations were these little sticky ginger apple cakes. Oh my days, they are good – super sticky and gloriously gingery.
A light fruity sponge made with wholemeal flour, ground hazelnuts and apples which is drizzled with a delightful smoky salted toffee sauce. This toffee apple hazelnut cake is just perfect bonfire night fare. Or any other autumnal occasion come to that.
Autumn pears, fragrant honey and warming ginger come together for an easy bonfire night bake. These gingered pear almond honey cakes are not only delicious, but are easily portable. They’re the perfect antidote to overhyped Halloween and its transatlantic excesses. They can be eaten whilst watching the bonfire flames dance and the Catherine wheels spin – no tricks, just treats.
Little chocolate chip cakes, filled with spiced apple sauce, then drizzled with salted caramel. What’s not to love? These spiced toffee apple bonfire cakes are perfect for munching around the fire on cold autumn nights.
