i’m back on BBC Radio Lincolnshire and Humberside tomorrow evening (Wednesday at 8pm… if you’re thinking of tuning in) and I want to talk about seasonal produce and some tasty treats to make with it…
we had Apple Day at Gunby Hall on Sunday, which celebrated all things apple… we had an incredible display of most of our 49 varieties of apple which the head gardener Clive painstaking picked, identified, catalogued, polished and beautified for the event alongside stalls selling apple produce and of course our tea-room, full to bursting with all kinds of yummy apple cakes, apple turn-overs, apple chutney, apple strudels, apple crumble cakes and my favourite, toffee apples… it was a really fun day and a great success… it also means that I have a bumper selection of apples to cook with as well as our first crop of pumpkins, ready for our Halloween event at the end of the month… so here are a few scrummy little recipes to get your taste bud tingling… and a few of the things i’ll be taking with me into the studio for James to try…
Pumpkin Cluster Bread
300g wholemeal flour
3 tablespoons parmesan, grated
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
Tepid water or milk – about 200ml
Milk, to glaze
You do radio? I am impressed. I have done radio, though not on a regular basis. No wonder your postings are so articulate. Love what you did today.

Love apples and I love pumpkin! I never tire of them! They are so plentiful this time of year in New England.
Sounds like a fun time and a lot of work was had by all at Gunby Hall!
Your recipes look fantastic, as usual Dom, you do not disappoint me!
Wally B says
I love the look of that bread. I must try it.
I turn all of our apples into Scrumpy.
Lovely recipes! Does the pumpkin add much flavour to the bread?
Baking Addict says
I've never baked with pumpkin before, perhaps its time to try with Halloween coming up! The apple and pear loaf looks really good – I'm going to try it for myself!
A Trifle Rushed says
What a fantastic trio of recipes :- I love three for one posts!
Now which shall I try first? The bread I think, we'll have some for lunch on Saturday.
Karen S Booth says
A FABULOUS trio of recipes and with great seasonal produce too…..the bread looks exceptional! Good luck with your radio shows, will listen in if I can, can listen on sky tv I think…..will let you know if I do!

I love the sound of pumpkin bread! Will definitely be making this one. Thanks Dom!
Oh to be in that radio studio and to get to taste these delicious bakes- how did it go?!
Lunch couldn't get better than your pumpkin soup with that pumpkin bread – brilliant. Did you really make all those apple cakes for Gunby Hall? Sounds like another great event – well done. Good to know your stardom continues to rise 😉
Dom at Belleau Kitchen says
it was great on the radio and I mentioned 'we should cocoa' too!!
From Beyond My Kitchen Window says
You've really been busy. I love the recipes this time of year and it seems you do too. The bread looks so yummy. I also liked how you added pear to the apple cake.
Gosh, I wish I was close to you, I would at least help you get rid of all those apples and pumpkins! I'm loving all of these recipes, but the pumpkin cluster bead is what I would really love right now!
Bread AND soup AND cake?!? Yum! They all look delicious!
Katy Salter @ Pinch of Salt says
Gosh you've been busy! The pumpkin bread looks amazing. I love how clever autumn is – providing us with all this bounty so we don't mind so much about the weather.
Oh man does that bread and soup look superb or what!! I must get me some ASAP ;0)
The pumpkin soup and bread look so comforting for the winter season! The apple cakes look adorable – love the idea of turning favourite recipes miniature.
