Traditional Guernsey Gâche Melée Recipe
Gâche Melée (pronounced "Gosh Malar") is a traditional Guernsey dessert recipe that is hundreds of years old. An incredibly easy to make apple based pudding / cake that can be eaten hot or cold with cream or ice-cream and one that is sure to be an instant hit with your family and friends. I highly recommend you give this recipe a try. It is quite rich and therefore very filling, so remember to keep your serving portions to sensible sizes until you establish how much you can comfortably consume.
