Toffee Apple Cake
Oh how I’ve missed baking and blogging, so happy to be back!! I’ve been tucked away at home trying to finish my University assignments and now they’re complete I can rejoin the real world! ❤️❤️
I really loved this cake because it’s so soft, sweet and sticky – the apples add a little firmness to the cake which is delish! 😀 The toffee sauce poured over at the end really adds to the finish, extra sticky toffee flavour! Yum! ❤️
For the cake –
150g light brown sugar
150g self raising flour
3 medium eggs
1tsp baking powder
Apple topping –
65g light brown sugar
250g green apples, cored, peeled and sliced into thin segments
Like a 9 inch cake tin with baking paper and grease. Preheat oven to 180C.
1 – Stew the apples – melt the butter and sugar in a pan and once dissolved add in the sliced apples and stew for at least 10 minutes, or until just soft. Set aside to cool.
2 – To make the cake – cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add in the eggs and mix well. Fold in the flour and baking powder and mix until just combined.
3 – Once cooled, take the apples out the sauce, set aside the sauce as you’ll need it later! Arrange the apple slices in the bottom of the cake tin in a circular pattern. Pour over the cake mixture on top, making sure no apples are on show! Bake for 40 minutes or until when a skewer is inserted it comes out clean.
4 – Turn out the cake as soon as you take it out the oven. The apples should now be on top. Using a skewer poke holes in the top, just a few all over. Warm the remaining sauce in the microwave for 30 secs and then pour over the cake! Serve warm with custard for a scrummy winter pud, or with a spot of cream!
