Let’s Get Ready To Crumble…..

24 Sep

tinkers cakes


I do a lot of cooking, especially baking, but I rarely draw food. I made a crumble today with raspberries from our allotment, some Bramley cooking apples from a friend and some wild blackberries. It was lush! The drawing is an old one, of some Tinker’s Cakes I made on a traditional Maen or Bakestone. They’re like Welsh Cakes but made with grated apple instead of dried fruit.



For crumble, I toss the raw fruit in a mixture of sugar and ground arrowroot before topping it with the crumble mix. The arrowroot turns the liquid into a nice sauce while it’s cooking and stops it becoming soggy.

    I love a good bit of baking. I have been making somewhat exotic kaya (coconut jam) cake this week. Dead simple and totally sinful if you make the icing. Kaya is a breakfast spread widely used in Singapore – so all my recent travels there seem to be having an impact.😂 sbs.com.au/food/recipes/coconut-kaya-cakes
