Bonfire Night Inspired Toffee Apple Cake

This recipe is totally inspired by Bonfire Night, because who doesn’t love a toffee apple? It certainly reminds me of my childhood. Combine that autumnal favourite with a gorgeously light sponge cake and we’re onto a winner! All my cake recipes seem to come from the same book and they are always SO good – and this one is no exception. So why not enjoy a slice of this, a hot beverage and watch the fireworks from your window.

Serves 8

Ingredients
·         2 small apples, peeled
·         50g dark brown sugar
·         175g butter/margarine (I used baking spread)
·         175g caster sugar
·         3 medium eggs
·         175g self-raising flour
·         150ml double cream
·         2 tbs icing sugar
·         ½ tsp ground cinnamon

Method
·         Pre-heat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4
·         Grease two 8-inch cake tins and set aside
·         Thinly slice the apples, mix them with the brown sugar and arrange in the base of the tins
·         Cream the butter/margarine and sugar. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl and gradually add them to the creamed mixture
·         Divide the mixture between the tins and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden
·         While the sponge cools, whip the cream with 1 tbs icing sugar. Sandwich the cakes together
·         Mix the remaining icing sugar with the cinnamon; dust over the top; and serve
