Mrs Simkins’ Apple Cake Surprise with Slightly Salted Caramel Icing

Apple Cake with Caramel Icing Slice 1

This moist apple cake is simple to put together and tastes fabulous: the caramel flavoured buttercream is just blissful: salted butter gives exactly the right hint of salt without it being overpowering.

Popping candy looks pretty scattered over the top and gives a crunchy element of contrast plus an unexpected surprise. Add it right at the last moment to make sure it retains its pop.

Serve with a pot of your favourite Clipper brew: Fairtrade Everyday Tea complements the flavours particularly well, or you could go for an Apple & Ginger infusion! Read More

Mrs Simkins’ Mini Summer Berry Cheesecakes

Summer Berry Cheesecake (individual) 2

These simple little un-baked cheesecakes, flavoured with lemon and vanilla, and sitting on classic biscuit bases, are perfect for a summer afternoon tea, ideally in the garden. Serve them as they are, accompanied by summer berries, or make them even more delicious with a topping of berry sauce!

Equal parts of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries make a nicely balanced sauce, but you can make it with any combination of summer berries: blackberries, tayberries, and loganberries are all good. The sauce is also good with cereal or yoghurt for breakfast, accompanied by your first Clipper brew of the day!
