Gallette with apples

Here is Chakula again with another recipe with apples. Indeed, this year apple season is rich. And cakes should be made frequently, so let’s get to it. As for the gallettes, I look at photos od this dessert on Instagram all summer, filled with seasonal fruit, so I needed to follow this trend.  I added nectarines with the apples, and you can add whatever seasonal fruit you wish. This is another recipe with a step by step explanation and photos. Preparation time: 45 minutes Ingredients: – 150 g flour – 30 g chopped walnuts – 1 teaspoon of cinnamon –...

Pumpkin sweet bites

Pumpkins are in season. There are all kinds which you can, depending on what you plan to make. I bought a 3.5 kg pumpkin, sweet for cakes. For pumpkin cakes the base is pumpkin puree.

Preparation time: 45 minutes Ingredients: Base – 300 g digestive biscuits – 150 g butter – 2 teaspoons vanilla extract Pumpkin filling – 2 eggs – 200 g brown sugar – 100 ml...

September brings the first autumn leaves, but also rain. Certainly it means that we will be more likely to be home and, of course, cook. In September, in the season are: pumpkin, chestnuts, figs and apples. Butternut pumpkin is certainly one of the most popular autumn foods for preparing both salty and sweet dishes. You can use it in soups, pasta, risotto, but also in delicious cakes....
