A big hello to those who have popped over from A sight of the morning. Thank you Alice. And thanks to the recent winds, I spent this afternoon making more apple loaf cake with the apples too battered and bruised to be stored. I was going to have a stab at the apple cake recipe in Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's cake book but was lacking in the store cupboard department. So, one large loaf cake for us and two smaller ones to give to our neighbours. It's funny - it's the first time I've baked for neighbours and I'm slightly nervous. They have no idea that a random bake is heading in their direction, and it's driven in part by the conversations we've had about how much they miss the woman who used to live in our cottage. I imagine she probably shared her windfalls, and certainly baked a good cake. I hope it doesn't come across as odd.
