Baking for autumn

As summer’s warmth gives way to the crisp cool of autumn, we thought we’d share what our Good Bitches are baking this season.

While ingredients like chocolate, caramel and vanilla are seldom out of circulation (fingers crossed), quintessentially autumn produce is starting to appear on supermarket shelves and (for those with a green thumb) ripening in home gardens. ’Tis the season for apples, blueberries, feijoas, melon, nectarines, passionfruit, peaches, pears, persimmons and plums, to name a few.

Here’s a round-up of some of the scrumptious seasonal baking we’ve seen so far this autumn.
