Mistakingly He Finds A Note Written By His Granddad In His Dad Books.
My grandad died in 2006 and he was the rock of the family, he is the sole reason I am the person I am today. I absolutely adored him and losing him broke me. He used to make this amazing apple cake all the time and I thought I was never going to taste it again. I’ve been through countless recipes trying to recreate it but non have even come close. Today while rearranging my kitchen I flicked though some old cooking books while procrastinating. When I looked through a book I got recently of my dad when he was having a clear out a really old hand written note dropped out and it was unmistakably my grandads hand writing. It was the apple pie recipe, so I baked it and it was exactly how I remember. It was like he was back again and it just made me so happy. I miss him so much but for one moment he was alive again.
I am sharing this recipe too…
