    Prepared for the Virtual Culinary Cruise 2009, for our stop in Guernsey. This apple dessert was different and quite good, I changed the serving amount to 4. I used butter and followed the recipe as written, the end result is like a moist, spicy scone filled with apples. I served it with ice cream, it would be great with custard too. Other than the egg there is no leavening in this recipe so it did not rise very high. It baked in an hour and a half in my oven at 300 degrees.
