This is Nick's up-market adaptation of the traditional Scandinavian dessert called 'Peasant Girl in a Veil'. It is basically layers of an apple spiced pur‚e with browned, sweetened, breadcrumbs and some whipped cream. It sounds a very basic idea -and it is! But it has a delicious simple taste and is a cinch to make. We have adapted the apple sauce by adding spices to Nosh it up!

The idea of this dessert is to layer the breadcrumbs with stewed apple. For the apple sauce, cook the apple in caster sugar and lemon juice with the cloves and cinnamon until soft but not slushy. Allow to cool (adjust the sugar if necessary - it should taste slightly tart).

Brown the breadcrumbs in the melted butter and brown sugar, until they turn crunchy and dark brown with the sugar. Keep the heat on low to medium to prevent burning and keep the mixture moving in the pan to prevent sticking.

Allow to cool.

Fill flute or cocktail wine glasses with alternative layers of apple and crumbs (about half an inch thick each) and top off with some whipped cream.
