Sticky Toffee Apple Pudding

The New Year is here and many of us are hitting the gym and pounding the streets with new trainers and sports gear….

…meanwhile I’m in the kitchen creating delicious full fat hearty puddings for the family drizzled in toffee sauce and lashings of thick fresh cream! Oops!

I do promise some healthier winter recipes are on their way but in the meantime please enjoy a slice of this divine Sticky Toffee Apple Pudding with some thick cream.

This pudding is certainly a well deserved treat in the cold winter months. We were out in the garden planning and plotting our growing adventures for this year and it was super cold.

I left the family defrosting by the fire and rustled up a delicious lunch of pan fried duck breast with a side of seasonal slaw and for a treat we had this delicious sticky toffee apple cake drizzled in toffee sauce and cream to warm everyone up. It’s fair to say it went down well with the kids!

I have used organic ingredients in this recipe but you can use non organic if you desire. Its important to use the golden caster sugar if you can source it as I think the flavour is better for the purpose of this recipe.

Ingredients

Toffee Sauce

125g of unsalted butter

60g of golden caster sugar

60g of muscovado sugar

200ml of thick double cream

Pudding Batter

60g of unsalted butter

80g of golden caster sugar

70g of muscavado

2 medium eggs

180g of plain flour

1tsp of baking powder

1tsp of bicarbonate of soda

1tsp of cinnamon

1tsp of ground cloves

1/2tsp of salt

200g of grated apple (2 med apples)

90g of chopped walnuts

Heat the oven to 180 and butter a suitable baking dish.

Add all the sauce ingredients into a small saucepan and gently heat through until the butter has melted.

Bring to a bubbling boil and stir for around five minutes or until the sauce has thickened enough to stick to the spoon or whisk.

Pour half of the sauce into your buttered baking dish and leave to cool while you make the cake.

Beat together the butter and the sugars, then add the eggs to the mixture and continue to beat together until it is all well combined.

Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt into the mixture and mix again to blend together. Add in the grated apple and the chopped walnuts and mix together gently.

Spoon all of the mixture into the baking dish on top of the sauce and bake in the oven for around 45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the hot cake comes out clean.

Make many holes in the top of the pudding with a fork and pour the remaining sauce over the top of the pudding. Leave to soak into the cake for a few minutes and then serve in squares with extra cream on the top.

Enjoy!

Awesome Apple Recipes

I have four delicious apple recipes to make use of my homegrown apples and apples from friends.  These recipes are so easy to make, even supervised children could make them.  My favourite is the toffee apple smoothie!  If anything try this recipe!

Click the video below for the recipes.  You can also find the recipes further down this post.

Toffee Apple Smoothie

2x chopped apples

2-4 x medjool dates

3+ cups of Hemp Milk (or other milk)

Dash of maple syrup

1 Tsp of Cinnamon

Add all of the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth.  Add in a little extra milk if necessary.  Share with family and friends!

Apple Recipes

Peanut Butter Apple Sandwiches

Oh these are so delicious!  Be warned they are addictive! 😉

Apple Slices (seeds removed)

Crunchy Peanut Butter

Chopped Nuts/Dried fruit/fresh fruit

Slice and remove the seeds from the apples (you can see how I did this in the video above).  Spread a tbsp of peanut butter on one slice, top with chopped nuts or fruit etc. and top with another slice.  Serve like mini apple sandwiches!  These make great after school snacks.

Overnight Apple Oats

I love overnight oats, they are so easily digested once left to soak the whole night.

1 x apple

Organic Oats

Hemp Milk

Additional fruits/veg (I have used pomegranate seeds in the video some grated carrots would be good too)

Cinnamon & Allspice (optional)

Grate the apple into the glass jug or bowl and stir in the oats, add in the additional fruits/vegetables (grated) into the bowl.  I used pomegranate seeds as I needed to use them up from the fridge.  Add in enough oats for 4 people (or less) and top up with hemp milk.  I topped up the hemp milk up and over the oats so that they have enough moisture to soak up. 

In the morning you could pop the oats into a tray and warm in the oven.  I topped with some live coconut yogurt and a dash of maple syrup. Delicious!

Apple Turnovers

These are really handy little snacks for kids and are great for packed lunches or for school break snacks.  My kids had these all week!

Ready to roll puff pastry

Chopped Apples

Cinnamon

Allspice

Caster Sugar

Leave the pastry to come to room temperature and unroll.  You can also make your own pastry but for a super quick recipe ready to roll does the job nicely!  Cut the pastry into rectangles and then into smaller triangles (as seen in the video) then add in some chopped apples and a sprinkle of cinnamon, allspice and a sprinkle of sugar.  Fold in half and close with a fork pressing into the edges.  Sprinkle sugar over the top and serve!  😀
