Well, that was easy: that glorious Algonquin apple pie recipe wasn't in Bee Drunken's blog as I'd first thought (and I searched and searched!) but in her other food-collaborative blog: Domestic Sensualist. That I'd just read a couple of days earlier.... I have the memory of a hen....
Anyway, go and have a look, and have a go - it's well worth it. Thank you, Bee.
PS Want to know how I found out in the end? So simple! I copied a couple of sentences from the saved draft of the recipe (the one where I'd managed to cut out all the clues to authorship) and put them in the Google searchbox with quotation marks at each end. And up she popped. Maybe everyone knew all this already, but if you didn't, it's the quotation marks that get you there.
Off now to make a large Victoria sponge (with whipped cream) as requested by her Four Doors Down, who has a houseful of guests who will need something reviving later on, after spending the day Going Ape in Northumberland. It involves swinging through trees on ropes, apparently. And it's raining today. Generous application of cake will be essential.
