A perfect Autumn dessert, this ‘self-saucing’ beauty is a mixture of soft apples, buttery sponge and caramel sauce.
Made with pantry staples, this dessert will feed up to 8 people, making it a great option when having people over at this time of year.
Thanks to Delicious Magazine, July 2005, it’s been a family favourite for a long time.
