The last couple of weeks since the autumnal weather has arrived, I have been getting back into the kitchen and baking. I always forget how much I enjoy it. Maybe it's because the washing up takes forever but I still love it. There is something so comforting about making some baked treats from scratch and sharing it with everyone. So much more satisfying than buying something from the local bakery. It's perfect for when you want to warm yourself up on a Sunday afternoon and then you have dessert ready for the evening.

Spiced flavours are my favourite, something with a kick and a hint of sweetness. So I'm already all over pumpkin spiced lattes and craving cinnamon buns on a daily basis. I was at home a few weeks ago and fancied baking something cinnamon flavoured. I had a look in the cupboard to see what baking supplies I had, looked for some recipes online and settled for some simple cinnamon muffins. They hit the cinnamon spiced spot and so easy to quickly bake.

Now that we are right in the middle of autumn, I'm sure I will be baking a lot more, my apple tree in the garden has some big apples hanging so I think a couple of apple crumbles are to come. Seasonal and delicious.
