Hungry Saturdays

With two teenage boys in the house, and the return of Saturday and Sunday sports fixtures, appetites are running pretty high around these parts. Cakes and biscuits are eaten almost as fast as I can bake them. Today I made one batch of apple cake with windfalls from the garden, and one tray of gluten-free flapjacks. The words 'gluten-free' sound so unappetising, but I am finding that this is not the case with the right recipes. These flapjacks were another cracking choice from Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's baking book, with my addition of some crushed Dove's Farm cornflakes and a couple of spoonfuls of chopped stem ginger. In fact, I had to leave the building to stop myself from eating the lot ...

 Apple cake is just a simple one-bowl tray bake recipe, very cheap and cheerful. I like to dust it with vanilla sugar at the end.

P.S. I'm still unable to reply to your comments. I do value them and I'm sorry that comments are met with a deafening silence! I'll keep trying with my Google Account, which is where the problem lies....

  1. Flapjacks and autumn are such perfect partners. Thank you for reminding me to bake some. Your apple cake looks delicious too.

    Hope you are having a good weekend.
