You know how some recipes manage to just worm their little way into your overloaded brain, mingle around with every other thought in there and somehow refuse to leave until you’ve made them?

Yes, this recipe is one of those. Deservedly so. Wickedly so.

Cinnamon rolls in an hour? Start to finish? Can it be done? What about proving the dough?

NO proving you say?! Now this I have to try…always up for a challenge! Especially a deliciously edible one.
And a one-hour ‘Emmerdale’ on TV just as I begin. Perfect timing.

Toffee Apple Cake With Vanilla Cream

image

When I was younger,  I always left the toffees in the assortment sweet tin behind. They didn’t appeal to me at all, maybe the overall stickiness!  The only toffee thing I liked, was toffee apples!  An apple completely coated in crisp sugared hard caramel more than toffee but the sweet and sharp flavours always appealed to me!

As I grew older, I started to like toffee ice cream and now I eat all the toffees in the sweet tin first!  I have always wanted to make a toffee cake but was not sure how to capture that flavour, that slightly burnt sugar taste.

I was casually walking along the shopping isle and came across this…

I had to try it! And boy am I glad I did.  The resulting cakes! Yes cakes!! I got 2 out of this small packet!  It tasted sooo good, had a very much homemade texture and was extremely moist especially with my addition of apple.  Simple yet delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed it!

I do have a favour to ask!  If anyone has a great toffee cake recipe from scratch please feel free to link it to this post or to message me the link or recipe.  I would love to make one and will post it up in your name!  Thank you in advance!
Have a wonderful weekend! Much love D x

INGREDIENTS

1packet toffee cake flour mix
1 red apple grated with skin
150ml single cream
1 tbsp granulated sugar
¼ tsp vanilla extract

METHOD

• Preheat oven to 180°c, grease and line two sandwich cake tins or one 20 cm large cake tin

• Prepare the batter according to the toffee cake packet.  In my case I had to add water and oil

• Fold the grated apple into the batter

• I used two tins so divided the mixture equally.  Place the cake to bake for 30-35 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean

image

• In the meantime,  in a large bowl, pour in the cream, sugar and vanilla.  Whisk cream until it becomes thick and frothy

• Once cake is done, slice up into pieces and serve with the vanilla cream
