MTM – Apples

on September 14, 2009

This week’s theme is apples. Michelle at Her Cup Overfloweth did a really imaginative tin – with a super-cute apple tree – and I’m sure the other ladies did great ones too although I haven’t had chance to check them out yet. But you can find them all at the link above.

Ours was not so imaginative.

Green tins for apples. Cheese ‘A’s, PB apple volcano, apple cupcake, apple-and-cranberry pancakes.

To make the pancakes, I subsituted 1/4 cup of apple sauce per egg. And the volcano is a hot baked apple with peanut butter lava and bits of dried apricot for rocks. (Should have been raisins but we didn’t have any). We baked the PB in the apple but it would probably be better to just bake the apple on its own, then hollow out some space in the middle and put the PB in so it can melt and overflow without trying to burn.

Apple and PB is a great combination – surprisingly – but Froglet wasn’t very keen so I’ll just do those for me in future. 🙂

Next week’s tin is a Childrens Lit one and I am very excited about it – we are doing Star Seeker.
