Looking for a gingerbread cake with a moist pudding like consistency

My recipe card is home, but this one looks just like it. It's the way I've been making gingerbread since I was in my teens, and everybody has always seemed to love it:

Looking for recs in Randolph-Morristown area

No, sorry - I haven't been to Saffron. My experience with both food and service has been great at Cinnamon, and co-workers who have been for lunch agree.

Best way to make apple sauce?

I just use whatever apples we have around, peeled and cored and cut into medium chunks. Into the saucepan over medium-low with a wee bit of apple juice, just to get them started. Lid on, they cook down and release liquid, keep cooking, keep cooking, keep cooking! The more apples, the longer, but at least an hour. Keep checking and stirring every so often. Lid off at the end, keep cooking, stirring occasionally till they're cooked down to the consistency you like. Cinnamon, nutmeg, itsy-bit of cloves. Taste and sweeten if need be - sugar, brown sugar, even artificial sweetener (my dad's a diabetic, so I use Splenda)..whatever your preference..start with a minimum amount - you can always add more. No food mill, no mashing, no straining. I've ever let it cook for almost two hours - longer = more concentrated flavor.

Poached eggs - serving ideas?

The BEST diner meal I ever had consisted of a corn muffin split horizontally and grilled, then each half was topped with a poached egg. Ridiculously simple, but incredibly yummy.

Crumb Buns/Crumb Cake?

Hahn's crumb cakes are fabulous, with more crumbs than cake and they're dense - in a good way. A 1-pound cake is about 2/3 the size of a regular 1-pound crumb cake. Our ShopRites sell them, but you can get them online at If you want to just cut to the chase, they sell just the crumbs by the bucket (my fantasy Christmas gift!).
