For the shortbread:

Sieve the flour. Mix in the fat and sugar with the flour. Combine all the ingredients to a  smooth paste. Roll carefully on to a floured surface ½ cm thick. 

Place on a lightly greased baking sheet, bake in a moderate oven for approximately 15-20  minutes. Before it becomes too cool, cut out rings.

For the spiced apple cake:

Put the lemon juice and zest in a stainless steel pan along with the apple pieces and cook  gently with a lid on until the apple is soft. Allow to cool.

Fry the breadcrumbs in the butter and 1Tbs of Nestle Bar-One sauce, not too fast. Remove  from the heat, add the spices and sugar, allow to cool on a plate. Make sure it is all mixed  well.

Place shortbread rounds in the bottom of a ring tin. Layer with apple sauce and then the crumb mix; repeat again so you finish with a level crumb topping. Allow to set and then turn out  of the ring and serve with a warm compote and Bar-One ice cream.

For the Bar-One ice cream:

Whisk the egg yolks and sugar until pale.

Boil the milk and Bar-One sauce, add to the egg mixture, return to the pan and cook until it  coats the back of a spoon.

Remove from the heat and pour into a bowl, add the cream straight away to stop it cooking on. 

Allow to cool, refrigerate for an hour at least before putting in the ice cream  maker.
