Apple Crumble Cake: a quick and easy apple cake for teatime

Recipe for apple crumble cake - one of England's myriad of apple cakes: quick and easy to make, and oh so wonderful with a cup of tea alongside.

Gift: This apple chutney recipe is ready-to-eat straight after you've cooked it, but you'll find the flavours mature and change over time into something even yummier!

Once opened, the chutney should be kept refrigerated and eaten within 3 weeks.

Anam Cara refers to the Celtic spiritual belief of souls connecting and bonding. In Celtic Spiritual tradition, it is believed that the soul radiates all about the physical body, what some refer to as an aura. When you connect with another person and become completely open and trusting with that individual, your two souls begin to flow together. Should such a deep bond be formed, it is said you have found your Anam Cara or soul friend.
