Ingredients for 9 people:
225g dark muscovado sugar (I used light as that is what I had in the cupboard)
2 eggs, beaten
225g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
200g cooking apples, peeled, cored and diced
100g soft toffees, chopped into pieces (I used fudge)
100g butter (at room temperature)
1 tsp vanilla extract
200g icing sugar
Toffee or caramel sauce
Heat the oven to 160C / 140C fan / gas mark 3.
Put the butter and muscovado sugar in a food processor or use a mixing bowl and mixer and whizz for a couple of minutes, then blend in the beaten eggs. Next add the flour, baking powder and whizz until combined. Finally stir in the apple and toffee pieces.
Pour the mixture into a buttered, base-lined 20cm square tin/baking dish and bake for 1 hour or until golden and risen. Remove from the tin and cool.
I have never ordered an apple flavoured pudding in a restaurant like apple crumble or tart tatin as I didn't believe it was my thing....I am now seriously regretting all the years I have missed out....as this apple and toffee cake was seriously amazing. I am proud to say my ex mother is law loved it and so did I. I adored the cake so much I have managed to eat 8 portions in 3 days 🐷🐷🐷. The apple, the fudge, the frosting, the cake - it was all obscenely good and so easy to make. I would recommend as an afternoon treat or a pudding....or even for breakfast - it is absolutely delectable.
