Junior Outlook Can you help with Sunday School? Sunday Schools happens every Sunday in term time during the 10 am Service. Children of all ages are very welcome. Activities vary and usually include colouring, games, puzzles and crosswords. We aim to read and talk about the Gospel of the day, depending on the ages of the children present and the children read or say a prayer. We always start in St. Mary’s Church before going across to St Mary’s House after the first hymn. We aim to bring children back to their families in time for Communion. We are currently looking for more helpers so if you’re interested why not drop into the Parish Office or call Heather on 388820. Have your cake – and eat it Try this for a tangy, tasty pudding using some of this year’s bumper crop of apples. You will need: 1lb (450g) cooking apples; juice of ½ lemon; 12 oz (350g) self-raising flour; 2 teaspoons baking powder; 12 oz (350g) caster sugar; 4 eggs 1 teaspoon almond essence; 8 oz (225g) butter, melted; A generous scattering of shredded, flaked or chopped almonds and caster sugar. Baking instructions Pre-heat the oven to 180 C/350 F/Gas 4. Grease and base line a 12x9 inch (30x23 cm) roasting tin. Peel, core and thinly slice the apples and squeeze the lemon juice over them. Measure the flour, baking powder and sugar into a large bowl. Beat the eggs together with the almond essence and stir into the flour with the melted butter. Mix well then spread half this mixture into the tin. Arrange the apples over the top. Carefully top with the rest of the mixture and sprinkle on the almonds. Bake in the pre-heated over for about 1 ¼ hours or until the cake is golden and slightly shrunk away from the sides of the tin. Leave to cool for 15 minutes and then turn out and remove the paper. Sprinkle over the caster sugar and serve warm with cream or ice-cream.
