Apple Bakewell tart

An Autumnal dessert inspired by one my favourite desserts; the Bakewell tart. This recipe takes on almondy frangipane sponge encased in a sweet, buttery pastry. The tart is then topped with sliced apples, drizzled with icing and scattered with extra almonds for good measure.

quick and easy homemade pastrami.


With lots of Autumnal and Thanksgiving inspiration making me drool over on Instagram, I thought it was about time I shared this homemade pastrami recipe with you.

On this occasion I thought I'd try out a simple, speedy recipe. It will still take an afternoon, but means you can be indulging in that homemade pastrami sandwich with all the trimmings on the very same day. What do you think?
