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

• 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
