Baked apples with chocolate-almond topping recipe by Franzi

Baked apples with chocolate-almond topping recipe by Franzi Autmn recipe

Dear readers of Belmto. My name is Franzi, I’m from Switzerland and write on the blog LILLALUND a table and a plate. It is a platform for all my passions: cooking, baking and taking pictures. Every month I write a guest post and present one of Belmto’s accessories.

The 'Fishnet Bag'

«Take the fishnet tote to the beach, farmers market, to brunch and beyond. A failsafe style option. They make great presents and even a finishing touch to your abode.»

Autumn is finally here, my favourite season. Leafs turn golden, the air is crisp and I can celebrate my birthday with lots of cake, family and friends.

But the best about autumn is the food. Fresh apples, grapes and pears find their way into my shopping bag. My favourite autumn dish, red cabbage with spätzli, baked chestnuts and creamy mushroom sauce. A dish full of autumn flavours, heavenly.

A dessert I really love are stuffed baked apples. Stuffed with buttery crumbles, oats or caramel. Or as today a version with lots of chocolate and almonds. A crispy dessert with the power combo chocolate and apple. Can it get any better?

All the love and best regards from Switzerland, Franzi

The 'Angel Cuff'

«A bold cuff with a brilliant flair. Two black tassels that sway its silky threads gracefully. The ideal addition to any classic and fun look.»

Summer is still going on, although the first leafs already turn golden. But berries are still a must these days and I enjoy them in all different ways: with ice cream, lots of whipped cream, pure, with yoghurt or even on a cake. I love every version of it, but this new combination of a cake and a classical berry crumble is something very special. In cooler days, we eat them berry crumbles out of the oven with ice cream. I love the taste of baked berries, they get so much sweeter. Go and just try it out, you will love it!

All the love and best regards from sunny Switzerland, Franzi
