Twenty fabulous fruity recipes to enjoy this autumn


September is the time to celebrate the humble pear, the delicious plum and the decadent fig. They are lovely versatile fruits that are used in both sweet and savoury recipes to make tasty autumnal recipes.

  • First up we have Foodie Quine’s roast duck with fig, port and star anise, a new but winning combination.
  • Warm up with Recipes from a Pantry’s slow cooker autumn flavoured spiced pear juice.
  • Figs always seem so decadent to me and My Little Italian Kitchen’s quick fig, ham and cheese pie drizzled with honey sounds and looks heavenly.
  • I love soda bread so Fab Food 4 All’s apple & pear cider spelt soda bread sounds absolutely gorgeous.
  • The Hedge Combers pear, walnut and feta salad with a warm herb honey is a brilliant compromise at this time of year when the weather is so unpredictable.
  • Lau Sunday Cooks has made a stunning plum and almond tart which is also gluten free.
  • My mouth is watering at the thought of devouring A Girl and her Home’s baked figs with goats cheese and honey. They look so pretty too.
  • The contrast between the chocolate sponge and the pale pears in Tinned Tomatoes’ chocolate pear cake looks fantastic, and apparently it is moist and fudgey too. Yum!
  • If you love vodka then you will really like my plum vodka recipe, it won’t be ready tomorrow so you need a little patience but I promise you it will be worth the wait.
  • If you aren’t too keen on pears Mummy Mishaps has a great recipe that incorporates them into the mixture to make them more palatable for fussy eaters in her pear and ginger muffins which have a lovely chocolate crumble topping.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team
