site de rencontre avec orange From August you will see the wonderful British apples back in the supermarkets and fruit stalls. To do these fabulous fruits justice I took inspiration from another beautiful Brit, Lorraine Pascale.

Toffee apples at Halloween were a big thing for me as a child (and even now, I can’t go one Halloween or bonfire night without a big red toffee apple).

If having your cake looking like it’s bleeding isn’t your thing, you can just leave it out.
