I’ve had the most horrible cold and it’s gone on for nearly two weeks now. As a result, my body has been craving healing foods. Ginger is a wonderful spice for alleviating soar throats and general bunged upness. Earlier this week, with Bonfire Night fast approaching, my thoughts inevitably turned to gingerbread. The result of my deliberations were these little sticky ginger apple cakes. Oh my days, they are good – super sticky and gloriously gingery.
It may not yet be #Soupvember, but the days have turned mighty chilly and November is indeed very nearly upon us. This is the time of year when soups and stews come into their own.
