Fall Recipes and Ideas from The Hearth and Soul Link Party

Hello and welcome once again to The Hearth and Soul Link Party. This week it’s all about fall inspiration, with featured fall recipes and ideas.

The Hearth and Soul Link Party where we welcome posts about anything that feeds your soul

At The Hearth and Soul Link Party, posts about anything that feeds your soul are welcome – from family, home, decorating, crafts and DIY to travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts and self improvement. And of course, food from the hearth to feed your soul is a real favourite here too!

It’s the Bank Holiday weekend here, summer’s last hurrah in England, and luckily we are seeing lots of sunshine and warm weather. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who is being affected by Hurricane Harvey.

With our lovely weather, I’m celebrating late summer fruit in my cooking and baking. There are some gorgeous late summer cherries around, and they feature in this delicious loaf cake.

Chocolate Cherry Loaf Cake - a deeply delicious, easy to make treat the whole family will love

Deep, rich chocolate flavour combines with sweet summer cherries in this delightfully decadent Chocolate Cherry Loaf Cake Recipe. I first blogged this recipe last year, but I’ve brought it back again because it’s just so good!

  1. April, thank you for hosting. Enjoy summer’s last hurrah! I’m making my financiers, fresh peach scones and egg and dill tea sandwiches for a small tea this afternoon. A friend is making my cucumber and tomato sandwiches recipe for me so I’m not overworked!

  2. Thanks for the party April.

  3. Thank you for hosting April, your Chocolate Cherry Cake looks amazing! Enjoy this last bit of summer, it is already feeling like fall here in Vermont!

  4. I can see why you would repeat this luscious loaf! Chocolate-cherry is a rich and delicious combination. Happy end of summer. The kids here have been back in school for a few weeks already. I consider summer over once school begins. 🙂

  5. Your cake looks amazingly delicious! I am looking forward to cooler weather for baking, still have temps of over 100, to hot to heat up the oven.
    Have a wonderful week!:)

    • Thank you so much, Karren. Oh my, 100 degrees plus! Wow! We only about 80 degrees at the moment, and that’s only just this weekend. It’s expected to cool down into the seventies very soon. Hope your week is wonderful too!

  6. Thank you for hosting. I would love for you to party with me at #WonderfulWednesday, #ThursdayFavoriteThings, or #OverTheMoon (Sunday). Enjoy your week!

  7. We are just hanging on here in Texas. Our internet has been up and down today, but grateful to in a dry place and our friends in Houston are having a horrible challenge. Hope you have a great week and thanks so much for the party!

    • Miz Helen, I am so glad to hear you are all okay! I can’t stop thinking about the folks in Houston. I really do pray there is some relief very soon. I hope your week is a good one, and that the storm passes quickly. It’s hung around far too long already!

  8. Thank you so much for the feature. I appreciate the opportunity to share my links each week and thank you for sharing.

  9. End of summer fruit, end of summer weather — it’s all just rich and delightful! Maybe because we know it’s coming to a close?

  10. Thanks for the party, April!

  11. Joining you in prayers for Harvey victims. Thank you for hosting.

  12. Thank you April for hosting. I shared your party on Google+, Pinterest, and Twitter. I’ll be back later to check out some of the links. On my way right now to put your button on my link parties page 🙂

  13. Hi April, thank you for hosting, I have added a few new posts, thanks for the opportunity to share!
    Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  14. April, living in Florida it’s so hard to imagine fall will soon be upon us which is why I am so looking forward to exploring all the goodies shared this week. I can’t wait to become inspired! I’m a bit late with sharing Back to School recipes, but I’m hoping many of your friends can use this collection all year long. Have a lovely weekend and as always, many thanks for all you do!

    • Hi Linda, It doesn’t seem like you are late at all as our kids in the UK don’t go back to school till next week 🙂 I’m sure many of the recipes would be perfect any time of year anyway! Thank you so much for sharing and for all your wonderful support. Have a lovely weekend!

  15. Just found your link party on Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday! Linking up and adding you to my weekly list!
