Apple Square with Toffee Sauce

Gosh its been a long old summer! Its still 24 degrees here in the South of France but soon I will be returning to the UK where it is damp, chilly and a little foggy apparently! (Hahaha 😉 )

On my return I will be starting a new venture, a little company called Free Range Kitchen. Through this, you lovely people can actually have me come to your house (!) and cook you dinner. Or help you cook something you’ve been wanting to learn, or even just fill up your fridge or freezer with yummy delightful dinners!

Pear and Chocolate Chip Loaf Cake

Named the official boat cake, I made this for elevenses one day and it all disappeared within five minutes of serving it. And to think, it was a complete trial and error made to try and make the most of some seriously squishy pears. The recipe is loosely based on my Nanny J’s banana bread recipe, but with a few changes based on the extra juicy nature of pears compared to the not so juicy banana. Excellent with a cup of tea, this cake is best served still warm from the oven (scorching hot if you just can’t wait that long!!).
