All Things Autumn: An Apple Flavored Autumn

12 Oct 2013

When it comes to autumn, I can't stop eating anything apple flavored whether it's with cinnamon or raisins; so for breakfast I will head in the direction of apple flavors.

For Breakfast at the moment, I would head towards this Sainsbury's own 'Red Apple & Raisin Granola' and with this I'd just add a scoop or two of natural yogurt. Sainsbury's also do a 'Apple & Cinnamon Crunch' which is very much a cluster cereal that I would normally have but I've been liking this granola for the moment. If I was in a rush out or just looking for a snack I would have one the 'Alpen Light Apple & Sultana breakfast bars'. These are very small and last about two seconds but they do fill me up to keep me going and at only 70 calories, how can you go wrong? 

This is only a short post but I thought I would include a really quick and easy recipe for you to maybe try. This is actually a Tesco recipe that my mum discovered many years ago and there are so delicious I feel I should share the recipe for these 'Apple & Cinnamon Pastry Tarts' with you!

What you will need:

  • Puff Pastry (feel free to make this yourself!)
  • A Cooking apple
  • Lemon or readily bought lemon juice
  • Cinnamon
  • Butter 
  • Caster Sugar 

How To Make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C or gas mark 7. Finely slice the apple halves into equal sizes and then gently toss them in a bowl along with your lemon juice; this will stop the apple from going brown.
  2. Cut out 4 puff pastry circles and place on a baking tray and arrange the slices of apple in a circle, slightly overlapping.
  3. Melt a small amount for butter and use this to brush over the apples and pastry. Now, add a generous amount of cinnamon and place in the over for 15-18 minutes.
  4. Once removed, dust the tarts with some caster sugar and voila! These are nice served with custard or ice cream and even nice cold!

Hope you enjoyed this food post! What do you like to eat during Autumn? x
