Toffee Apple Fudge Cake
Recipe type: desserts
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10
  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 200g self raising flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 eating apples, grated
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g Thorntons Vanilla Fudge
  • 100g Thorntons Special Toffee
  • 1 heaped tsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • ½ tub of ready made vanilla buttercream - I used the Morrisons own brand which was really nice and actually bettet than Betty Crockers, in my opinion.
  1. Pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160oC (fan)
  2. Grease and line 2 x 8 inch baking tins with parchment paper
  3. Cream the butter and sugar together for about 5 minutes until pale and soft
  4. Add the eggs, 1 tbsp of the flour and the vanilla extract and beat for a couple of minutes
  5. Fold in the all but 1 tbsp of the flour and then stir in the grated apple
  6. Chop the fudge up and coat it in the remaining flour and then add it to the cake batter
  7. Divide the batter between the two tins and cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes until cooked all the way through
  8. Once cool, carefully remove from the tins - you may well find that the fudge has melted through the cake onto the parchment paper. If so, just scrape up and add back to the gaps in the sponges! No one will know once the cake has been assembled.
  9. When the sponges are completely cooled down, sandwich them together with the buttercream
  10. Then to make the toffee sauce for the cake, simply place the milk, toffee and butter in a non stick pan over a moderate heat, and allow it all to melt together to make a sauce. You will need to stir a lot to break the toffee pieces down
  11. Allow to cool for literally a couple of minutes and then spoon on to the cake - it will drip down the cake but I think as it tastes so delicious this really does not matter.
