Grey days and comfort eats

Apple, raisin and cinnamon muffins


Wellington and most of New Zealand, has received quite the drenching thanks to receiving the tail end of storm 'Debbie', bringing with it cold southerlies and grey skies for days. The clocks have gone back and its official, Autumn is here. So yes, the combination of 'shorter' darker days and reams of rain is enough to make anyone feel a little blue. There are however some things which are welcomed with this season - one of them being the new season apples!

So here we have with some freshly cooked apple sauce - Apple, cinnamon and raisin muffins. sure to comfort the soul on this grey and drizzly Thursday. 

These are being served in our cafe today, but if you like the look of these muffins, sweet and savoury versions can be ordered from our morning tea menus.
