Some years ago we discovered a recipe for delicious spiced apple-crumble cake bars; I thought people might like to try it.

Pictures and the recipe can be found here:

(I hope it's not too cheeky to post the link!)

Welcome, Jan. Love your sense of humour - that Dignitas remark had me laughing out loud and Back to Black is priceless Laugh

I think your Appley-dapplies seem like a brilliant idea, especially for everybody on here who has a glut of apples, like we do. Must instruct Fiona to give them a whirl Wink

Jan, tried your Appley Dappleys today and all went well but they turned out a bit crumbly

Did I miss something? do I need to press together more or did I cook the apple too much?

Liked the result but had to eat with spoons - I remain undaunted and will try again

My apologies Jan, it was much better when it was completely cool!!!

And very nice it was too - I think this will become a permanent addition to our repertoire

I'm delighted you like them - they're very popular in my family (though they don't keep for long; the apple tends to make them go soggy after a couple of days. Looking on the bright side, that's a very good reason to be greedy and scoff them!) Wink

Made my second batch of these last night, using less sugar.  Totally yummy, so much so that I have used the last of my Freecycle apples to make the apple puree so I can freeze some to make a quick batch later.  I added some finely chopped stem ginger to one lot, will report back when we try it.

hi there
the scar is healed; the nerve is still tight if I stretch out my thumb and I cant use scissors really at all. I still have no improvement in sensation but figure that as life is possible without then if it does not return then so be it!

Glad to hear that the scar has healed, I guess the nerves will eventually grow back and you'll get most if not all sensation back.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I'll try that again!
