Apple Sponge

A round fruit embedded cake and a pastry brush, teaspoon,a small pot of cream on a wire rack.
For something sweet, it was a hard pick between Mum’s crepes, her sultana cake or the recipe we have chosen. We asked Dad for his favourite and he said without a doubt it’s Mum’s warm and comforting apple sponge pudding.
