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 would never think to pair coffee and butterscotch together, but I recently found a recipe for some sticky coffee and walnut puddings which combined these flavours, and I thought I would try them out in cupcake form. I was surprised to discover that they go very well together and the sweetness of the butterscotch complements the bitterness of coffee nicely. Which I guess makes sense, as I do enjoy a caramel latte from time to time!
