Another day of using up bits? Pleased to finish the lAst of the dreaded babybel. Made two apple cakes with apples from the garden. A great autumnal cake. This is the recipe from my mother in law.
4oz Demerara sugar
5oz self raising flour
1lb cooking apples, peeled and chopped
A pinch of cinnamon
Melt the butter, add the dry ingredients then the egg, then stir in the apple and raisins. Put in a round deep tin and bake at 180c for 40 minutes.
Went to buy shoes for my one year old , no size 3's in Nailsworth, went to the great Apples and pairs in Sherston, Tetbury, such an amazing shop, fantastic personal service and beautiful collection of childrens shoes and clothes. Further than I would like to go, but worth it. Granny in tradition bought the first pair of shoes. Reminded today how amazing Tetbury is, full of independent shops.
Firework night tonight, the only place selling fireworks in Nailsworth is tesco or wyevale. Let's hope someone else has bought some!
