Late summer eats

August 29th 2011katie

Is summer really over now? Judging by the weather and my increasing tendency towards hoodies and comfort food, it might be heading that way… here’s some of the autumnal-tinged things I’ve been cooking lately.


Wholemeal bagels, which I’ll look forward to eating for my breakfast this week. I used the same recipe as last time, but with wholemeal flour and sesame seeds sprinkled on top.

Apple cake

A delicious apple, almond and vanilla cake to take over to a friend’s for Saturday lunch. I followed this recipe, but omitted the cider and added a dash of vanilla syrup, because I love vanilla in anything.

Dosa filling

Indians dosas with sweet potato filling from Jamie Oliver’s recipe. Dosas are thin chickpea flour pancakes, often found in South Indian cooking, filled with a lightly spiced potato mash.

Japanese food

I haven’t cooked Japanese food for ages, but the lovely baby aubergines from the greengrocer’s were crying out to be teriyaki-ed, and patty pan squash got a sesame sauce.

    All of this looks soooo tasty. Must try making dosas, they look like a good alternative to naan bread.
