I bought them thinking they would look great with food and in photos.
I was wrong.
So bear with me until I get myself another plate, for display purposes.
And the spot of pink is evidence of my experimentation. I threw in a few red-currents.
Moving on, this is a recipe I must share. Truly, it’s been too long that I have kept this one to myself.
Mum makes this as pudding when we come over for dinner and after years, I finally got the recipe.
It’s like an apple cake, but it’s more like an apple fritter in cake form…hard to describe actually.
But one of my all time favourite puddings.
