Autumn is my favourite.  It’s probably most people’s favourite.  The colours, the utter JOY of autumn sunshine, crisp walks in the park, inappropriately cold picnics, and flavours.

Although I feel like I’m happiest when dabbling in bread these days, nothing gets me more excited about baking sweet stuff than autumn flavours.
We try and keep to seasonal ingredients here at Loaf, and use them while they are locally/nationally abundant.
Here’s what you should get baking/making:
Toffee Apples. Baked Apples. Apple & Blackberry Crumble.
Spice Cake, Prunes, Rum Frosting.
Poached Pears.  Especially in Jasmine tea. Ok, and wine.
Pecan Pie.
Adding cinnamon to everything.  Take it all the way to Christmas.
Apple Cider Donuts – The dream donut.
Damson gin.
I get a little too excited about pumpkins. Below is my pumpkin cake recipe. Pair it with cream cheese frosting.  Throw on some pistachios and there you are.  Autumnal perfection.

Pumpkipumpkinn Cake

250g Caster Sugar
320g Canola/Rapeseed/sunflower oil
3 x Large Eggs
380g Plain Flour
1.5 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp Salt
1 can pumpkin puree


1.  Mix sugar and oil thoroughly
2.  Add eggs one at a time and mix
3.  Add dry ingredients and mix
4.  Add pumpkin puree and mix

Bake at 180 degrees for about an hour, and a skewer comes out clean.

Before we talk about lunch, lets take a second to remind ourselves that Lap will be baking sweeeeet stuff all week, and it will be well worth being the first in the shop for the choice.  If you’ve never had Canelé, you have four days to make it happen.  They are so wonderful.
And here’s the lunch menu too!



Next week we have a pastry section, and he’s called Lap.

We love working with Lap, aka @oishinboy, aka The Foodist, aka lover. However he’s normally banned from the bakery – bread is about the only thing Lap can’t do and we’d rather it stayed that way, for the safety of all of our future food careers.

Next week though he’s part of the bakery family – he’s going to be banging out loads of his signature macarons, as well as a stack of his favourite sweet delights. You can read all about Laps love-affair with macarons on his foodist blog. The full menu is looking like this:

Tuesday 22nd September (12-6.30pm)
Salted caramel macarons
Canelé (pictured)
Blackberry baked NY cheesecake
Wednesday (12-6.30pm)
Chocolate macarons
Thursday (12-6.30pm)
Ispahan macarons (rose, lychee, raspberry, white chocolate)
Friday (12-6.30pm)
White Stilton, cream cheese and prosciutto macarons
Chocolate pecan pie
Saturday 26th September (8.15-1pm)
All the macarons
Matcha Cheesecake
Chocolate pecan pie

We look forward to seeing you!
