Comfort Apple Cake

It’s been agonisingly slow waiting for the Energy Consultant’s assessment to come through, at long last enabling the building warrant to be finalised.

Whilst we can do no more to progress things with the house build I’ve been comfort baking this weekend.

Dorset Apple cake and a cup of tea on this drizzly, grey London Sunday.

      1. The topping is absolutely optional. The picture I took was before this was added. It’s an easy method and very simple ingredients, as well as a delicious cake 🍰
