Our week day desserts are normally pretty simple, with the kids generally opting for fromage frais and fruit. As the nights start drawing in, though, our dinners have generally comprised of comfort food and I've had a fair few requests for warming puddings. My latest offering was a baked apple dessert with maple syrup and pecans, which I served with custard. Empty plates all round and lots of suggestions for variations on the theme.
