Apple & Butterscotch Loaf Cake

apple & butterscotch loaf cake

Having been away for the weekend, I spent the day today washing (but not drying grrrr to the rain we had all day!), unpacking and food shopping. I noticed that some apples were looking a little sorry for themselves in my fruit bowl before I headed to the supermarket, so I decided to make an apple based cake to get them used up.

I noticed some apple and butterscotch floured yogurt while I was out shopping, so I knew then that an Apple and Butterscotch Loaf Cake was on the cards, and so that was what I made. Here is how I made it:

  2. 200g caster sugar
  3. 2 eggs

  5. 250g self raising flour

  1. pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160 oC (fan)
  2. grease and line a 1lb loaf tin
  3. cream together the butter and sugar for about 5 minutes until pale and creamy
  4. add the eggs, the cinnamon and a spoonful of the flour and beat the mixture for a couple of minutes
  5. Add the remaining flour and the yogurt and mix until combined – being careful not to over do it
  6. Pour 3/4 of the batter into the tin
  7. Sprinkle over 3/4 of the apple and butterscotch pieces
  8. Cover with the remaining cake batter and smooth over
  9. Scatter the remaining apple and butterscotch pieces over the top
  10. Cook for about 45 – 50 minutes until risen, golden and cooked right through
  11. Allow to cool and then remove from the tin and place on a wire rack
  12. Slice and enjoy

Mmmmm this is sweet, sticky and the butterscotch adds a lovely flavour to the sponge. I know that the mums and dads at playgroup will enjoy this with their teas and coffees tomorrow 🙂

  1. Oh this is so delicious and sounds yummy. I will have to try it. Butterscotch is one of my favorites I wouldn’t have thought to put in a loaf but bet it tastes amazing. Popping over #tastytuesdays

  2. Looks, smells and tastes great but what did I do wrong? Should I have put it in two 1lb loaf tins?
