Here it is, went down very well with a swirl of cream. I had altered the recipe and cut down on the sugar but after Mr T told me it was blowing his head off we sprinkled on a bit extra. I used Delia's recipe which added a bit of cinnamon, and because I had two wrinkly looking Bramley apples they went in as well.
While we were out shopping I remembered some maths lessons I had in primary school where the teacher taught all sorts of maths using chocolate. The fact that I can still remember them to this day probably says a lot so I got a few packets of Smarties and we did a bit of Smartie maths in the afternoon. It proved very popular, especially when everyone could eat a few!
I'm still knitting like a mad woman, have almost completed yet another pumpkin hat and have started a pair of baby fingerless mittens from this pattern. I'm using Adriafil Knitcol but I'm not sure of the colourway. Any ideas of a title for the colourway? Its reminding me of sweets but I'm not sure which, maybe Dolly Mixtures??!!
