Apple fudge cake
Delicious cake perfect for dessert

2 large cooking apples
50g dark brown sugar
180g butter
180g light brown sugar
180g self raising flour
4 eggs
Fudge Sauce
120g light brown sugar
120g butter
½ tbsp lemon juice

To make the cake:

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

Butter the sides of a round cake tin and line the base with greaseproof paper.

Peel and cut each apple into twelve slices.

Arrange them in a single layer on the bottom of the tin and sprinkle the dark brown sugar over them.

Place the butter, light brown sugar, eggs and flour in a large mixing bowl and mix until well combined.

Spoon the cake mixture over the apples and sugar already in the cake tin.

Bake for 40-45 minutes – the cake should be nicely golden and coming away from the edges of the tin.

Allow it to cool in the tin for 5 minutes and then turn onto a serving plate. The apples which were on the bottom of the tin will now be the top of the cake.

To make the fudge sauce:

Put the butter, light brown sugar and lemon juice into a medium sized saucepan. Allow the ingredients to melt over a low heat for a few minutes.

Stir and pour over the cake when it’s cool.

Level of Difficulty

Our recipe tester suggests using a springform tin makes it pop out very easily. If you don't have time to make the caramel sauce this cake would be lovely warm with icecream or custard.
