This has been a fabulous year for apples. The heavy rain we had a few weeks ago caused quite a lot of them to split though, which meant they wouldn't store. And this meant they needed using up quickly which was the perfect excuse to make some apple cakes!
As much as I love a plain apple cake, my parents' walnut tree has also produced an abundance of nuts again. So, with basketfuls of walnuts on offer, it really had to be apple and walnut cake.
The recipe is over on 'A Garden Notebook' which, if you haven't already discovered, is my new blog for all things gardening. It's a record of all the things I want to remember about my garden, other peoples' gardens, gardening advice I've come across, kitchen garden recipes and pretty much anything else gardening related.
Come on over and have a look ...
