I had a Wright’s (<click here to see their site & more delicious bread and cake mixes) cake in the cupboard, I actually bought it with the intention of making a cake with the wee one. Oops!
It’s ok though, he was busy with the play dough I had made, we’ll bake a cake another day 🙂
I wanted to bake something that was not just the regular toffee cake and I had some bramleys kicking about that I felt I should use up. Simple, let’s make a toffee apple cake!
Easy, tasty and quick what more could you ask for? By the way, this is MUCH yummier than you imagine a packet could ever taste, nobody will ever guess it was from a mix, honest!
What I used:
1x Wright’s Toffee Cake mix
3 medium Bramley apples, chopped and then stewed in 1tbsp water until soft
40mls Rape seed oil
1/4 tsp Vanilla paste
1/4 tsp Baking powder
Small handful of pecan nuts, chopped
For the top:
4-5 Pecans, chopped
1tbsp Demerara sugar
What I did:
First off stew the apples, until soft but not completely smushed*, set aside to cool
Tip baking mix into large bowl
Add other ingredients(and apple)
Pour into 9″x9″ lined pan
Sprinkle on the topping
Bake at 350(180) for about a hour or until a toothpick comes out clean
Remove from oven ad place o rack for 1-15 mins before turning out to completely cool
