recipe: apple & blue cheese bread pudding

This is a modified recipe from an old Kinfolk Magazine article that I rediscovered recently. It was geared toward single servings- not for large families but more so just for the reader to indulge in. Below is what was written:

“Depending on your level of carb-indulgence, it can be difficult to polish off a whole loaf of bread solo before it gets stale. This recipe offers a clever way to use those chewy end bits before they go bad, fusing them with something you’re meant to let grow pungent.” -Kinfolk, v. 11, p. 35

The main difference is that I removed the eggs and honey from the original recipe, added some vanilla, and changed the measurements. It turned out so lovely- especially if you are a lover of sweet and salty.

Apple & Blue Cheese Bread Pudding

(1 serving)

Ingredients:

1 tbsp butter
1 cup bread, torn into pieces
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
1 apple, peeled and diced
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp blue cheese, crumbled

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat an oven-safe ramekin with butter.

2. Add the bread, milk, sugar, salt, apples, vanilla, and blue cheese to a bowl. Gently mix until everything is coated. Then pour into the ramekin. Place in oven and bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Remove and serve warm.

recipe: apple pear cake

Just in time for the fall months and Halloween, this cake is the perfect dessert for such an occasion. It’s not overly sweet, and is just warm, filling, and spicy. Try it for yourself!

Apple Pear Cake

Ingredients:

(For the cake)
1 cup apples, peeled and sliced
1 cup pears, peeled and sliced
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cup butter, plus more to grease
4 large eggs
3 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp lemon juice
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp cinnamon

(For the topping)
1 cup icing sugar
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp milk (or until desired consistency)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp walnuts, chopped

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease two round cake pans. Peel, cork, and slice the apples and pears. Set aside. 

2. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, butter eggs, vanilla, and lemon over medium speed for 3 minutes. Add the dry ingredients next- the flour, baking powder, and salt. Then add the milk and oil. Continue to mix until well-combined.

3. Pour batter into cake pans. Top one of the cakes with the apples and pears. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Bake in oven for approximately 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Remove, let cool completely.

4. Meanwhile, prepare the icing. Once cool, remove the cakes from their pans. Stack the cake with the layer of fruit on the bottom, and the non-fruit cake on top. Ice the top layer of the cake and sprinkle with nuts. Finally, enjoy this sweet, moist, and comforting fall cake.

what i bought

Cell Phone Case 4Readers, how often do you replace your cellphone cases?

I bought my first iPhone nearly two years ago. You can read the post here. As a blogger, I must admit that maintaining emails and various social media platforms is greatly improved through the use of Apple products. While I was initially opposed to the popular brand, my trepidation was purely unwarranted. I can honestly say that an iPhone alone made my online presence much stronger than prior to owning one.

Cell Phone Case 1My first case was incredibly cute, and always reminded the little girl in me of Bugs Bunny. This time, I chose a cover by one of my favourite designers, Marc Jacobs. A black and white case, with hearts, and a dog? How could you go wrong?
