Something to look forward to

#Baking #food #pie #apple #pudding #writeclub

Salford, 10th June 2020

The preparation seemed endless

the pie dish lined with the finest pastry

rolled out , sugared and buttered

now sat there waiting for the filling

The Smell of Bubbling Bramley apples

merging together with sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon

attracts the local feathered residents

looking longingly past the window glass

dropped into a sweetened parcel

and sealed with a spiced sugared lid

finally toasted together in the oven

served up after the fish and chips

and the perfect accompaniment for it

is spluttering away on a hob

as the smell of fresh vanilla custard

meets with warm apple pie – just the job!

An Ode to apple crumble

O wonderful pudding

with a biscuit – like top

what wonderful delights

will release when you pop

 

sweet bramley apples – softened by fire

with buttery topping – a crumble to inspire

sliced and laid out in a tin foil dish

fulfilling a little lad or lasses’ afters wish

 

and whilst in the oven – sweet flavours combine

custard cooks in pan , on hob, all is fine

but if someone wants it – to fulfil their dream

in freezer’s a tub, of soft scoop ice cream

 

But question of day – are second helpings about

looking towards crumble pan – kids and elders do shout

the second helpings are small, but nobodies flustered

as there’s lots of leftover vanilla custard.
