The summer days are behind us and we finally get to snuggle on the sofa with a good book or a good show on Netflix after having spent the day outside. Fall is my favorite season. I love the light, the colors in the countryside, the smell of wet leaves in the forest and the cool temperatures. I love getting outside and come back home for a tea. So when this one comes with a sweet treat, the day seems even better.
Here are 5 ideas of feel-good and easy-to-bake desserts I often make for and with my kids! I could have put more recipes but those are my essentials, the ones I enjoy so much during this season.

1. Apple crumble
Let’s start with cooked apples as for me they are a winner ingredient. Add it with a crunchy sugary topping and you’ll see your family eating it straight from the baking tray! If you’re lucky enough to get the apples from someone’s tree, it will bring you a satisfying feeling of authenticity .
2. Banana Bread
Have you ever noticed how banana bread is even better the day after? We normally double the ingredients so that we can bake a cake and make some muffins to eat on-the-go the day after. It definitely has a long-lasting wellness effect!
3. Carrot Cake
This recipe comes with frosting. My kids love it, me not so much. But it’s OK because with or without frosting, this recipe is amazing! This cake is perfectly moist and tender.
Try it, you won’t regret it!
4. Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
I found this recipe last year and I just can’t wait for the cold days to bake it again. (Remember, I’m in Spain, the cold days always take longer than in northern countries to come!)
Spices, Pumpkin and cream cheese are the perfect combo to enjoy Fall days.
5. Butternut Squash Muffins
This last recipe is very autumnal as well with butternut squash, walnuts, cinnamon and Olive oil for a Spanish touch! I love it so much that I made a Recipe Bowl out of it so that I always have the recipe at hand.
Have a nice Fall season !
