Part of me is still desperately mourning the loss of the summer that never really got started. The other part is ridiculously excited about autumn baking, bonfire night, woolly scarves and fireworks!
This is one such autumn inspired bake – A toffee apple cake. Its a toffee sponge, with chunks of toffee in, filled with apple preserve and then topped with a spiced apple buttercream and toffee sauce.
It is also very much a cheats cake – the actual sponge was a Wrights packet mix. (Please, don’t judge me. It was on offer in ASDA!) The buttercream I did create myself however – Its 250g unsalted butter, 500g icing sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon about 1/2 cup of apple preserve and 2 tbsp of whole milk.
And now the Bears are off to go Blackberry picking – Autumn is awesome!
