Sounds like a delicious selection to take on a picnic. It’s certainly been picnic weather, quite surprisingly.
I have been busy in the kitchen again, testing out Vegan gingerbread to see how it goes.
We went picking brambles and elderberries the other day, so this morning I put them on to boil with sugar ahead of straining the juice for wine. Then I made up a batch of applesauce with apples from the garden.
I have a guitar workshop tomorrow, so I decided to make my personal favourite flavour of oatcakes for it, sun-dried tomato. Mmm.
I made up the gingerbread mix next, while the oatcake dough “rested”. I’m trying to see how replacing the eggs with applesauce works with an old favourite recipe of mine from our bread machine cookbook. I used white spelt flour too, and lots of grated ginger. It smelled delicious in the oven.
I left the gingerbread in the tin for ten minutes before taking it out. It helps to keep it sticky and moist.
Mmm. Pudding! Looks like it came out pretty well!
