Really soft, gooey, apple and caramel cake with which to celebrate

Just before Lockdown Number Three there was a window of time when my son and daughter-in-law were able to visit, together with their new puppy. At the same time we were able to exchange Christmas presents. The visit wasn’t very long, and we weren’t sure when we would see each other again… a worrying feeling of uncertainty.

But we managed a feast together of goose, followed by this fabulous gooey cake. There was a lot left, and my concerned maternal instincts were slightly alleviated by being able to give the remains to our visitors – the cake was a huge hit with all tasters.

Don’t waste the other half of the orange: peel, and slice thinly and add to a salad of rocket, spring onions, walnuts, and celery.

Here’s what to do.
