Blackberry and Apple Loaf

Foraged, brambles, easy, frugal

Having picked lots of blackberries and apples recently I wanted to come up with a simple tea loaf to enjoy them in. After a couple of attempts I came up with this recipe which I’m very happy with. On the first day of making its quite suited to having butter spread on it (if you wish) and on the second and consecutive days it becomes more of a moist cake, a little bit like Sophie Dahl’sSpelt Banana Bread. This loaf is so simple to put together all you do is mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients/fruit and make sure you don’t overwork the mixture. Using frozen blackberries helps the berries stay whole but if you only have fresh ones to hand I’m sure that would be fine too.

Delicious buttered with a cup of tea:-)

As this recipe uses foraged fruit I am entering it into Credit Crunch Munch which is run by myself and Helen  at Fuss Free Flavours and being hosted by Elizabeth’s Kitchen this month . I am also entering Made with Love Mondays which is hosted by Javelin Warrior’s Cookin w/luv as it is made from scratch. Next I’m entering A Kick at the Pantry Door’s Feel Good Food Challenge which is run by Victoria as the theme is apples.
