    A friend gave me the apples from her garden and I picked the blackberries on a walk with another friend.
    Tastes delicious with a dollop of Crème fraiche.

    I also made some Cornish pasties.

    A perfect underneath....no soggy bottoms here!

    I made meat ones and veggie ones. Both were delicious, according to my panel of tasters.

    Yes......I know I've made a typo with "OF" instead of "OFF" but I don't know how to correct it. :D

    Don't think you can Sparkles. Never mind we know what you mean. :)

    I'm very impressed with your creations this week Sparkles. :)

    I love the swirl pattern you have created with the apples and the base has held its shape well. Apple and blackberry anything is just yummy. :D

    I've never tried to make pasties - was it difficult to do the crimping? I might be inspired to have a go myself. Glad your bottom isn't soggy! :p:D

    Well done Sparkles! :)

    Very clever dual cake @sparklepig2002 - looks tasty too (though I would go for vanilla ice cream rather than creme fraiche).

    And now I understand why @sparklepig2002 is pushing for a pastry technical challenge ;):p

    Nice and early today, but seeing as I am going out on the razzle later, I might as well post now!

    Would you like to see my bottom?

    I could get all protective about the CORNISH pasty.

    Did you use skirt, turnip, potato and onion?!

    Very well done on the lack of soggy bottom. Certain nationwide companies could take a leaf out of your book!

    Super pineapple upside down pudding Lilac - and with a surprise shaping to the bottom too! :)
    Very neatly placed pineapple halves and cherries. :) Scrummy. :D

    Thanks.
    I wanted to trim the top flat, but then it wouldn't look right. Then I was going to ice it which was stupid because I had to turn it over! Unlike the people who had leaky springform tins, mine didn't leak, it overflowed in the centre!

    Very nice cakey pudding Lilac. I suspect pineapple will be a theme of this week's entries :D

    Pear upside down pudding - a Waitrose recipe.

    Checking out the recipe to post here today I realised why I had some problems with the bake. I used a 20cm tin instead of a 23cm (should have put my glasses on :oops: ). This meant I had to trim the pears to get them to fit and I had to increase the baking time by about 15 minutes. Whoops - I did wonder why at the time! :D
    DiL loves Chambord and pears and so wanted me to make a dairy-free version for her. I had to use block Stork margarine instead of butter and water instead of milk.

    That looks yummy Marlin.
    But where's the pineapple?? :eek:

    No pineapple in this - but I did have a tin of pineapple ready in case I needed to do a second creation. :p

    Mmm, pears.

    What's Chamboro?
     
  17. gargs
