Halloween Pinspiration

It's that time of year again! Time for scary films, scary food and scary costumes. And another Halloween Pinspiration (check out last year's post here)! Unlike the previous three years, I haven't really got any plans for this Halloween, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Halloween party! It always helps to have a bit of inspiration, so of course I turned to Pinterest to round up a few Halloweeny ideas. If all else fails, I can always just dress up anyway and sit on the sofa watching scary films eating Halloween-themed baked goods on my own. #RAVE

Masala Chai Apple Cake

Last month, as part of my Pinspiration series, I created an Autumn Baking post listing all types of yummy autumn bakes I've been drooling over on Pinterest. I was immediately drawn to this masala chai apple cake, mainly due to the presence of "chai" in the title. In my mind, chai equals chai latte. I love chai latte. Chai in cake form with a subtle presence of apple? I'm sold.

Fun fact, I decided to make this cake right after hot yoga. I literally walked out of the studio and straight into the supermarket for ingredients. Because you always deserve a treat post-exercise, right?

Joe's Kitchen, Borough

I have to be honest, breakfast isn't my favourite meal of the day. Simply, I don't like mornings. I have never been, and probably never will be, a morning person. With my job and tactfully-booked morning yoga sessions, I am gradually getting used to waking up earlier, but I still don't leave enough time to really savour my morning meal. I usually just go for a quick bowl of cereal or a couple of slices of toast, or, if I'm feeling adventurous, some porridge. As a result, I can't handle too much food early in the morning, so any morning feasts are out of the question. But brunch? Well, I'm all over that.
