We’re well into the ‘ber’ months which means a change of season and all of the lovely things that Autumn brings! Amongst chilly mornings, Autumn sunshine and the leaves turning brown, it also means blackberries!
Admittedly, I started foraging for blackberries at the end of August but they will be in abundance now. I always make sure that I have a sandwich bag with me on a walk, so that if I come across some juicy berries, I can pick them [although I have been known to pick them and hold them in my hands or handbag – which gets messy!]
I wanted to shine the spotlight on this berry – one of my favourites – and create some lovely bakes with them for you to try yourself.
This one is a good recipe if you don’t like a really sweet jam. I want to call it a grown up jam purely because you can taste the flavours but my kids eat it so…
Check out my Instagram reel that shows the method.
Ok, this one is so easy [almost laughable that I’ve put it in here] but we regularly make jam tarts because the kids absolutely love doing them. It’s the one thing that I can leave them to it – although I step in when the oven part is involved!
Jam and shortcrust pastry is all you need. Definitely make them with the jam as above. I also like them with crumble topping!
This recipe should make about 10 tarts and it will leave you with apple mixture to freeze and have a later date.
I honestly do not think that a soufflé is that difficult to make. There are lots of horror stories around where they collapse as soon as you take them out of the oven, but I have yet to experience that and I don’t think it’s luck! This recipe makes two soufflés.
This one is special. It requires a bit of time but it is a showstopper!
Happy baking! Let me know if you try any of these recipes – either comment below or follow me on Instagram and tag me in your delicious creations!
