1/2 tsp baking powder
4 medium free-range eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs sultanas
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2-3 tbs demerara sugar
Glaze 100ml cider icing sugar

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180°C / 160°C fan / Gas 4. Line a 23cm x 23cm square baking tin with non-stick baking powder
2. Pour the cider into a saucepan and simmer for a few minutes until reduced by half. Turn off the heat, then add the butter and granulated sugar and stir until melted, then set aside.

My boyfriend Stephen Taylor he drives my mum to the hospital all the time , at one stage every week so that she can get her cancer treatments 💖 this means he’s had to quarantine with me and he deserves the world just for putting up with me

My heart is feeling quite warm seeing all of these adverts for random acts of kindness, it’s one of the kindest things you can do , I’ve helped and treated people in the past and it seems to have a loading effect on them , no one ever knows how someone is feeling inside so the biggest thing you can do is be kind ❤️. I would like to nominate my husband Mike James , he does absolutely everything for us, he even worked seven days a week through the first lockdown because you can’t turn overtime down xx

Thank you so much Friels Cider for my prize me and the wife are enjoy so much and thank again

I’d love to nominate my 86 year old Dad Brian Hunt. Despite suffering from skin cancer he still continues to do the shopping for the housebound residents on his old age complex.

I nominate Jess Cozens who is amazing, she puts others first and has been so supportive to me this year, which has been a difficult year. She is training to be a maths teacher during this difficult time. She is amazing. ❤
