The Food Exchange

Thursday 22nd October (The Food Exchange – October)

I can’t believe another month has gone by! I don’t know where this year has gone. I haven’t posted this month at all so I will be doing an update post very soon! I promise!

For now here is my Food Exchange post for October. This month mine and Greta’s theme was Autumn!

Greta’s challenge for me this month was Zwiebelkuchen (onion tart). I have seen this popping up in all of the bakeries around here recently, so when Greta sent me the recipe I was very excited!

This was the first time I had made a yeasted dough for a bake like this. Normally I would just use a shortcrust pastry. However the end result was really nice. The filling is a mixture of onions and bacon pieces combined with eggs and a little bit of cream. The thing that really stood out for me was the amazing smell coming from the oven while it was cooking!

This is definitely a brilliant autumn dish, it is warming, rich and comforting. We ended up eating this for dinner with roasted potatoes and vegetables! It reminded me quite a bit of one of my favourite French winter meals Tartiflette!

If you want something that is a fairly straight forward bake but is really tasty I would definitely give this one a go!

I ended up having a bit of an autumn baking afternoon and made roasted sweet potato and coconut soup, soft bread rolls and little meringue ghosts! It was a lot of fun being back in my little kitchen after being away from it for so long!

To see my October Food Exchange challenge for Greta head over to her wonderful blog here!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

If you have any suggestions for the Food Exchange please get in touch with either me or Greta!
