Winter is still with us. Today the skies are like slate here in the Fens. It's a day to hunker down, and consider a spot of comfort baking with the wireless on whilst wearing jimjams and woollens. About a year ago there was a day like this. I was experimenting with gluten-free recipes and the weather was just as dreary. I was determined to try to conjure a cake that was like a sort of appley duvet for the gob. I think I managed it. The recipe is over on Standard Issue as part of my Making Winter column.
It's a mish mash of Dorset apple cake, several deliciously dense almondy citrus cakes I've eaten, there's a nod to Nigella's lemon polenta cake and a dash of Rebecca/Lydia's apple cake in there.Either GF plain flour or standard can be used.
I prescribe snuggling under a blanket or quilt and eating massive chunks of this warm with a spoon x
