Ah, autumn! That transitional season where the leaves change, the clocks go back, warm weather becomes a thing of distant memories, and pumpkin spice dominates the entire world! Here in London this week it feels like we skipped autumn altogether and went straight to winter, it’s friggin’ freezing! But with how up and down the weather has been here lately, I’m holding out hope it will warm up again for a while before we’re fully submerged into winter. Our clocks went back over a week ago, so I’m mostly used to leaving for work in the dark and getting home in the dark now, but I am not used to this freezing temperatures, I need to go glove shopping stat! Look at me talking about the weather, how boringly British of me! Let’s talk about this Gluten Free Apple Upside Down Cake instead!
This Blackberry, Cinnamon and Fig Margarita is the perfect fall cocktail. With a delicious blend of sweet, sour and warm spice you won’t be able to resist them! They’re really simple to make, which is handy because everyone will be asking for refills! This Blackberry, Cinnamon and Fig Margarita is the perfect cocktail to serve this thanksgiving!
I know a lot of you are probably still lamenting the end of summer, but not me! Summer has it’s advantages; lovely fresh produce, long days, sunshine, and cocktails galore to name a few. But, as much as I love sunshine, I hate the heat. It does not agree with me! The sun may be hibernating more and more as we delve into autumn and the days are already getting much shorter but in return we get crisp air with cooler days and colourful foliage. And we may start saying goodbye to the strawberries and peaches of summer, but we can say a big hello to the blackberries and figs of autumn, and not to mention the absolutely gorgeous, warm spices that dominate this season. Yes, I think it’s safe to say that I am big fan out autumn. Especially because it means I can give my favourite summer cocktail an amazing autumn makeover with this delicious Blackberry, Cinnamon and Fig Margarita! Yum!
Delicious layers of fresh whipped lemon cream, meringue pieces, lemon curd and fresh blackberries make up this Eton Mess, a classic English dessert given an Autumnal makeover!

So, if you follow me on any kind of social media you may have realised that the Rugby World Cup is currently underway and I’m a big England supporter! Last weekend we had a crushing defeat against Wales (we only lost by three points, but losing to Wales is the worst thing that can happen to us!) so I’ve been kinda bummed all week! Tomorrow we play Australia, it’s really important that we win this one and score a lot of points, so I’m pulling out all the stops in my support – including creating a special dessert recipe in support of England Rugby. And so this incredible dessert was born – Blackberry & Lemon Eton Mess!
Homemade, from scratch, flakey, buttery puff pastry with a fall spiced apple and blackberry filling and fresh whipped cream. So delicious and much easier than you think, this recipe includes a step by step guide on how to make your own real puff pastry from scratch! The perfect treat to welcome in Autumn.
I love autumn, I can’t imagine there are many people that don’t love it! But as I sit here and write this post, ready to gush about how wonderful this season is, it’s pouring down with rain and has been all day – that’s the reality of British fall! The leaves may turn beautiful colours, but they’re soggy piles of mulch on the ground! And you can get cosy in your oversized sweater, but you’re gonna ruin the wool as soon as you step outside! On the plus side, the miserable weather is the perfect excuse to stay indoors and fill your house with wonderful autumn baking aromas – and these apple and blackberry cream turnovers are a great start!
I’m a brownie girl through and through. The rich chocolate, gooey centre and fudgy goodness is enough to make any girl weak at the knees. But I gotta tell you, these blondies seduced me! The soft texture, pumpkin pie filling and chewy edges are enough to make me seriously consider reevaluating where my loyalties lie – and that’s saying something!
These yummy pumpkin pie blondies were born out of left over pumpkin pie mix after making my pumpkin pie ice cream. But it’s totally worth making the mix especially for the blondies, they’re too good not to! You might want to invite some friends over to enjoy them with you or you’ll be in danger of eating the whole pan yourself (I wouldn’t judge you if you did though!)
