Recipe Post 2017 N0.18- Blackberry and Apple Mallow Traybake

Saludos,compaΓ±eros panaderos!-my greetings to you all in Spanish, one of the two languages I am currently studying at school!

Thanks so much for your feedback on last week's post. Although I had uploaded photos of last week's post, for some reason, they hadn't appeared on the blog post so I apologize for that- I'm afraid there is no philosophical reason behind that.πŸ˜•

Without any more rambling, let's jump right into this week's recipe!

In order to concoct this Autumn-welcoming traybake, you'll need:

140g of unsalted butter, softened and at room temp

120g of caster sugar

1 egg and 2 yolks,beaten together

½ tsp of vanilla extract

100g of self-raising flour

100g of ground almonds

1tsp of baking powder

1tsp of either freshly grated or ½ of ground nutmeg(I used ground nutmeg)

1 large Bramley Apple,roughly around 200g

125g of blackberries

For the mallow, you'll require:

25g of blackberries

100g of white caster sugar

2 egg whites

1tsp of lemon juice

 1-2tbsp of toasted flaked almonds


Firstly, heat the oven to 160℃/140℃ fan/ Gas Mark 3.
Grease and line the base and sides of a square traybake tin,allowing some baking paper to overhang.

Following afterwards, make the blackberry sauce-: place the berries and 1 tsp of sugar into a small bowl and cover in the clingfilm. Microwave this for 30 seconds, at once on a high setting.

Personally, I prefer the alternative which is to add 1tsp of water, then soften in a pan over a low heat. Mash until saucy and leave to cool.

Using a electric hand mix or free-standing mixer,beat together the butter and sugar in a large bowl until moderately pale and creamy. Afterwards, beat in the egg and yolks,followed by the vanilla extract. Mix in the flour,almond,baking powder,nutmeg AND  a pinch of salt,folding into a fluffy mix, creating a rather thick batter.

Incorporate the apple in a "folding" manner, finally spooning the mixture into the tin ,plus smoothing over the top. Scatter with blackberries, vaguely poke the blackberries into the batter, baking the traybake for a time of 45 minutes;once the top is golden and a skewer is inserted,coming out clean. 

After the bake is complete, leave the oven on.

In order to conjure up that relishing mallow topping, firstly you'll require a large piping bag. Whisk the egg whites,lemon juice plus the pinch of salt into stiff peaks. Include the sugar 1 tbsp at a time, whisking well after each addition. Eventually, the mix will become a shiny,stiff meringue.

Ripple this with the now cooled blackberry sauce,spooning into the piping bag.

*note: for those who are recreational in baking may find this step more arduous than myself. But fear not, it has taken me many months of baking for this blog to get piping RIGHT.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜
Pipe 16 evenly spaced, approximately walnut-sized meringues on top of the traybake, scattering with toasted almonds, then placing back into the oven for a further 10-12 minutes until the meringues have set.

Cool in the tin for 30 minutes,then remove to a rack to cool entirely.

Cut into squares and serve,as desired.πŸ˜‹ And
AhΓ­ estΓ‘ es!

  9. Hey, Read my testimony! Getting ex back after a breakup. My boyfriend of a 2 year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we've been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn't have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: call him on: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
