Pie and Cake

Thanksgiving Pie

Pear.
A little apple.
Maybe a cup of blueberries.
Maybe a half cup cranberries.
Juice of a meyer lemon, plus zest.
Fresh grated ginger. A little honey. Some cinnamon.
And a splash of some weird maple whiskey and some fancy pear brandy.


Butter/flour/water crust with a bit of bacon grease, too.



Most of the fruit went into the pie



And there was enough leftover for cake today

I made it very similarly to this cake, except instead of cornmeal and pecans, I used the fruit. Instead of flour, almond meal, and oats, I used one cup corn flour and one cup coconut flour. I used a yogurt, apple cider, milk blend for the liquid (and it needed much more than one cup). I did not put any spices in the batter this time, because there was a lot of spice in the fruit.



I also made pumpkin bread with chopped dark chocolate bars today

Enjoy.

still trying to wrap head around the words "coconut flour", which I do not think I have ever seen in conjunction with each other before.

you clearly have access to much better grocery emporia than I do. And much better culinary imagination as well. It's not fair, you artists get all the fun.
