It is cold outside and I have a stack of apples to use up. The perfect excuse to bake something apple-y. Also, the first time baking since summer began. Very exciting.
I’m tempted to make an apple tart similar to the one I had in the Rhone Alps, which tasted incredible at 2,500 metres. However, pastry is probably not the best choice after living on croissants and baguettes for a week.
An apple crumble, with some blackberries thrown in, is much healthier with whole-grain oats, and much less butter is involved. Next I may make apple strudel or apple cake. Hopefully that will help with my apple issue at the moment.
