Apple Picking, Spelt Apple Charlotte and a New Season in Our Life

Apple Picking, Spelt Apple Charlotte and a New Season in Our Life

While this cake can be made with any mixture of stewed fruit (pears, quinoces, plums), we made ours using Granny Smith apples. The cake can be made dairy-free if you wish, with options provided below. You can skip tonka bean if you can't find them. If you like, stew the skins in a separate pot until soft and blend into a puree. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or freeze and add to porridge, water to make "cloudy juice" or to custard.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • ⅓ cup unrefined sugar (we used demerara)
