4 Finely chop the walnuts. Reserve two tablespoons for decoration and stir the remainder into the breadcrumb mixture. Set aside.

5 For the Butterscotch Sauce: Place the butter and sugar into a small pan.

Heat gently until melted and then heat for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and gradually whisk in the double cream.

6 For the Topping: Pour the double cream into a bowl and whisk to soft peaks. Fold in the cinnamon and icing sugar. Transfer to a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle.

7 Start layering the apple and date mixture, butterscotch sauce and crispy breadcrumbs into a tall glass. Top with a swirl of spiced cream and a sprinkling over the reserved chopped walnuts.
