It’s been a long time since I last posted on here and even longer since I baked anything, so I decided to have a break from revision to conjure up something tasty for a treat. I had many apples that needed using so had a ponder about what I could make with them. I really fancied an apple crumble, but had no ice cream or custard, so that idea went out the window. I also toyed with the idea of some apple turnovers or apple galettes, but the time needed to make puff pastry put me off the idea. In the end, I went back to a tried and tested cake that never fails to please 😀 This cake is very moist and freezes well, which is great otherwise I would definitely eat it all in one go!
