Toffee Apple Cake


Okay, so I’m slightly behind with making (and posting) this cake recipe, as I always think of toffee apples as being bonfire night fare, but I had to share as this cake is SO delicious! There are still some fireworks going off here and there where we live, so I think that means this recipe is still in keeping 😉

You will need:

  • 3 small eating apples, peeled and cut into slices
  • 4 tbsp soft, dark brown sugar
  • 175g unsalted butter
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 175g self-raising flour
  • 150ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees c. Lightly grease the sides and bases of 2 x 8 inch sandwich tins.
  2. Toss the thinly slices apples in brown sugar until well coated. Arrange them over the base of 1 of the tins, and set to one side.
  3. Cream together the butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat the eggs together in a small bowl and gradually beat them into the creamed mixture.
  5. Sift the flour into the mixture, and fold in well.
  6. Divide the mixture between the two cake tins and smooth down, leveling the surface.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, before removing the tin that DOESN’T have the sliced apples in.
  8. Bake the tin containing apples for a further 5 minutes, or until a skewer comes out of the cake cleanly.
  9. Leave in the tins to cool.
  10. In the meantime, whip the cream with 1 tbsp of the icing sugar and vanilla extract. Sandwich the cake together with the cream.
  11. Mix the remaining icing sugar and the ground cinnamon together, sprinkle over the cake, and serve!

    This looks absolutely gorgeous. I love apple and cinnamon in anything and everything. I spent hours peeling, chopping and freezing apples from our tree in the garden to keep us going over the winter. I felt like a real life domestic goddess (for about 3 minutes) and now I’ve found where to use them 😉
