Apple Butter with Vanilla Pancakes

After we plucked our apple tree we had an abundance of apples all lined up in bags in the garage. Although it's not near as bad as when we had two apple trees I figured I needed to do something with them, we couldn't just freeze them all, our freezers would be overflowing with fruit and they're already full of boxes of blackberries.

I'll be honest Apple butter is kind of just fancy apple sauce although it is definitely worth the few extra hours you have to leave the hob on. This recipe is just perfect autumn breakfast....or lunch, maybe dinner? or a snack. Maybe just eat it for all meals, there's carbohydrates, protein and fruit you're all set.

I got a little carried away with this recipe, the pancakes were actually sort of an afterthought, in the days leading up to making this they were always a shall I shan't I, and I'm glad I shalled! These pancakes are the perfect mixture between crepe and pancake, although I didn't purposefully make them this way is was a pleasant and welcome oops, maybe I'll make them like this more often they just seem lighter this way.

Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins Dipped in Chocolate and Cinnamon Sugar

I've had a few ideas for pumpkin bakes this year but it took me a good few weeks to open my can of pumpkin. I have to trek all the way to a large supermarket which so far has been the only place I've found it and I figured I should make the most of it and use it all up in a short amount of time. Well that didn't pan out, two weeks later the leftover pumpkin is sitting in the fridge in a little pot, now I'm not sure whether it's edible or not; I'll have to give it a good whiff. But I'll most likely have to go and get some more because for the past few months I've been dying to make the pumpkin pudding muffins I made last year
