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!
