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