Sticky Toffee Apple Cake


Sticky toffee is the epitome of all school puddings. DSC_0212Regardless of how many times I try and recreate the custard-drenched masterpiece I never quite seemed to get it right. Golden syrup and more golden syrup justdidn’t seem to produce the smokiness of the toffee.DSC_0211 Never one to admit failure, I decided to recreate the school food classic with a ‘healthier’ approach – apples. You may consider this a hybrid of apple crumble and sticky toffee pudding.DSC_0219The wafts of toffee apple seeping out the oven will bound to have you at the bundt pan with a fork. The sponge manages to absorb every drop of the caramel apple juice and produces moisture you can’t even imagine.DSC_0215
