Baked apples are so autumnal – they colour up like fall leaves when you bake them especially if you use the red-skinned variety. These are stuffed with butter and raisins and golden sultanas and basted with Amaretto and sprinkled with Amaretti biscuits. A creative way of using up slightly wrinkled apples too!

DESSERTS Fruity Hand Pies

A hand pie is literally that, one you form by hand and one you eat in your hand! They can be as higgeldy-piggeldy as you like in shape as long as you make sure all sides are sealed so the filling stays put (though as you’ll see from our photo this is a virtual impossibility and some of the fruity juices will inevitably leak out). This makes them look even more hand-made so they will be even more of a success. Use any fruit.

BREAKFAST French Toast with Berry Compote and Sour Cream

Breakfast or dessert or a midday treat? You choose. We can eat french toast any time of the day. You can find brioche in the supermarket now – it’s not the real thing but it is an airy and light bread that makes good French toast. Serve it with a fruit compote, dust with icing sugar and a spoon of sour cream and you are ready to go. It takes minutes to make.

DESSERTS Blackcurrant Compote

Pot the fruit compote into a kilner jar and when it’s cool keep it in the fridge to top muesli or granola, smear it on waffles, serve over ice cream or spread on bread for breakfast. Or use it to fill a blind-baked pastry case, top with lattice pastry and bake for a quick blackcurrant tart.

DESSERTS Strawberry Gratin

Make the most of strawberries in and out of season. You’ll need four small oven-proof gratin dishes for this dessert or one larger one. Make the liquid mixture the evening before and you can pour it over the fruit the next day just before you are ready to bake them.
