Classic apple crisp gets upgraded with fresh figs and grapes for a delightfully fresh and fruity dessert. Ripe autumnal figs are delicious, but cooked figs are out of this world; their sticky crimson juices perfectly complement crisp fall apples and syrupy grapes. Add almonds for extra crunch! Try this simple dessert and enjoy all the best flavours of the season.
Named after the queen of England and wife of King Henry VI, Marguerite d’Anjou pear cake is one of the most famous vintage French desserts. This ambrosial pear cake is loaded with fresh fragrant pears and bright citrus flavours; Marguerite d’Anjou leaves a very delicate taste as it melts in the mouth and releases a retro elegant aroma — sweet fruit and zesty citrus. This is not only a simple and elegant recipe but also a tried and tested one; my Marguerite d’Anjou pear cake recipe is vegan and vintage-inspired.
