November 11, 2014

FSF Sept Round Up Collage

I know, I know, I know….this is an exceptionally overdue round-up post from September, but FINALLY here I am….in….ahem…. mid November. My sincere apologies folks in taking so long to get around to reading and commenting on all your wonderfully fruity recipes. As ever I’ve been blown away by the diversity and ingenuity of all your entries, from homemade ‘Jaffa Cakes’ to Muffins, Mini Loaf Cakes to Cheesecakes, Ice Creams, Sorbets, Jam, Ketchup, Fools, Tarts and Cakes a plenty, even a fruity salad. Do grab a cuppa and feast your eyes on this exceptionally pretty and delicious looking lot, but be warned you’ll be wanting a little extra with that cuppa!

As it’s a bit of a bumper round up this month I’m attempting to round up each of the entries in a mere three(ish) words, wish me luck!

I think you’ll agree that’s twenty eight fruityliciously gorgeous entries! An impressively beautiful array, which naturally makes picking out a winner a very tricky task this month. But a winner we shall have and after much drooling deliberation I decided on Kate’s AKA The Gluten Free Alchemist’s Mixed Berry ‘Jaffa’ Cakes. I mean homemade Jaffa Cakes, need I say more?. But not just any jaffa cake, these are gluten free jaffa cakes made with a cakey base of rice and almond flour (and interesting coconut oil), a jelly made from homemade blackberry, blueberry, raspberries and apple jam not forgetting to mention that generous layer of dark chocolate. Ooooooo. And ooooooo again. A very well deserved win Kate!.

As some of you may have noticed Anneli and I haven’t hosted FSF this last couple of months, we decided to take a little break from the challenge as we’re both sillily busy with other projects at the moment. But rest assured FSF will be back soon, in the mean time if anyone fancies taking up the hosting please do drop me a line,

See you again soon folks,

    These are all looking fabulous Lou and as usual I want to greedily tuck into the lot. Great to see so many blackberry recipes, it seems to have come into its own this year.

  2. Kate - gluten free alchemist

    Fab round up…… The versatility of fruit is incredible and there are some wonderful recipes here. Obviously a bumper blackberry year. I certainly have my eye on Deena’s plum-star anise-amaretti ice cream! And I am thrilled to have won….. Thank you so much! I did wonder what had happened to FSF in the last couple of months….. No worries…… life gets so busy!
