Sticky Toffee Pudding

As a gardener I hold great admiration for the English gardening culture. Everything just grows so well over there. It’s like the whole country has a green thumb. I’m also a great fan of a strong gin and tonic and a hot cup of tea, both of which I picked up while studying garden history in Manchester. Another English indulgence that I’m partial to is sticky toffee pudding. Don’t expect this sticky toffee pudding to turn out like something from a Jell-O box. In Great Britain the word “pudding” can be applied to any dessert. It’s really a moist cake with a rich toffee sauce. It’s a great dessert for both special occasions and lazy days spent by the fire with a good book and a hot cup of tea.

Ooey Gooey Glazed Apple Cake

One of the joys of autumn is fresh apples. In groves and farmers’ markets around the country, people are celebrating the harvest. Whether served sliced over a salad, baked in pies or eaten right off the tree, this fruit is a delicacy of the season.

Baking this apple cake is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, especially if it is cold and rainy. The cinnamon and apples will warm your home with the aroma of autumn.
