3 Easy Fruit-Filled Autumnal Bakes

3 Easy Fruit-Filled Autumnal Bakes

Roasted apples, warm baked blackberries, sprinkles of cinnamon and brown sugar. We’re in the mood for some Autumnal baking. You know that Bon Accord is all about the fruit, so we’re leaning heavily into fruity bakes this season. 

Here are a few simple recipes for those of us who didn’t graduate beyond the complexity of a lockdown banana bread. These bakes will have your house smelling like a real bakery in no time (we’re hoping for something reminiscent of the treats from our favourite cafe's). 


Apple Galette 

Prep: 15 mins

Bake: 1 hour

Servings: 8

Galette is the perfect lazy gals pie that’s impossible to get wrong. Imagine making a pizza and topping it with apples before rolling the sides in. That’s a galette.

This recipe from Delish asks for homemade pastry. Now, you could make your own, but I’m the first to admit that my effort levels don’t really stretch that far when I’m baking. I prefer to buy my pastry, but go ahead and make your own if you have the resolve.


1 shortcrust pastry

2-3 large apples - cored, peeled & sliced

50g brown sugar (light or dark)

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

¼ tsp. ground nutmeg

Pinch of salt

Egg wash: 1 large egg beaten with 1 tablespoon of milk

Optional: Creme fraîche or your favourite ice cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C
  2. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper and set aside
  3. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough roughly into a 12-inch circle (this doesn’t have to be perfect!)
  4. Place the dough on the baking sheet

  1. Combine the apple slices, brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt in a large mixing. Gently fold to coat the apples.
  2. Arrange the apples in the centre of the dough, leaving a 2-3 inch border around the edges
  3. Gently fold in the edges of the dough (overlap the dough if you need to), and press the edges down to seal them
  4. Brush the egg wash over the crust
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling slightly
  6. Let cool for a few minutes
  7. Slice and serve with a dollop of creme fraiche or your choice of ice cream
Apples and spice pair well with a hit of ginger. Why not try one of our Bon Accord Ginger Beers with your galette?

Spiced Plum Crumble

Prep 15 mins

Bake 40 mins

Servings: 6

Everyone loves a crumble. Of course, it inevitably brings the custard vs. ice cream vs. double cream debate, but we think anything would go amazingly well with the warm spices of this bake. Most of the ingredients are store cupboard ones, and the whole recipe from BBC Goodfood takes under an hour to make from start to finish.

Plum crumble



800g ripe plums, halved & stones removed

50g light brown sugar

finely grated zest of 1 orange

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp plain flour



250g plain flour

150g butter

80g caster sugar

80g demerara sugar

50g ground almonds



Heat the oven to 180°C


Put the plums into the base of a shallow baking dish around 20-30cm long 

Mix in the sugar, orange zest, cinnamon and flour 

Trickle over 2 tbsp water


In a mixing bowl, rub together the butter and flour using your hands, then stir in other the other crumble ingredients

Scatter the crumble mixture over the filling and bake for 30-40 minutes until golden

Leave to cool for 15 minutes, before serving with custard, ice cream, or cream

Gooey Blackberry Brownies

Prep 20 mins

Bake 30 mins

Servings: 25-30

This list wouldn’t be complete without indulging in some delicious chocolatey treats. Blackberry-picking is one of the UK’s most popular pastimes, and this addition from The Happy Foodie brings a lovely tartness to the classic brownie recipe.

  4. Once the chocolate has melted, remove the mixture from the heat and add the eggs, sugar and flour
  5. Mix until smooth, then stir in the blackberries
  6. Pour the mixture into the baking tin and scatter a few more blackberries over the top
  7. Bake for 30 mins (or until a nice crust has formed on top). 
  8. Leave to cool (unless you’re like me and love warm brownies)
