  • 2 tbsp double cream

Method

  1. Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Grease a 2lb loaf tin and line the base and ends with a long strip of baking paper.

  2. Beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla until pale, then beat in the eggs, one by one. Tip in the flour, cinnamon and yogurt. Peel, core and chop apples into small chunks, then add to the bowl and mix everything together with a wooden spoon.

  3. Scrape into the tin, smooth the top and scatter the walnuts down the middle. Bake on a middle shelf for 1 hr 20-30 mins until a skewer poked in comes out clean. Cool in the tin.

  4. To decorate, put the toffees in a small saucepan with the double cream. Gently heat, stirring, until toffees have melted into a smooth caramel sauce. Cool for about 1 min while you gently turn out the cake. Slowly drizzle the toffee sauce over the top of the cake. Scatter immediately with the extra walnuts – they should stick where they hit toffee. Leave for 10 mins before serving. Best fresh but will keep in an airtight tin for 3-4 days.

I used mascarpone cheese instead of yogurth and it turned out lovely and soft. Never got to the topping yet.

Amazingly good, now a firm staple in my cake recipe book. I switched the walnuts on top for pecans and it was lovely. I also used just basic dairy toffees for the glaze with worked a treat! Lovely.

Really nice but would leave in the oven for longer next time and probably add some baking powder as it was a bit stodgy at the bottom! Loved the topping, used cheap as chips supermarket value brand toffees and they were fine.

Fabulous cake. Really easy and went down a storm. I only had the hard Werthers and attempted to melt some of these with the cream, didn't really work and so removed the lumps of toffee and just mixed up the cream with what had melted which was delicious. I think the cake would have been as good without the sauce in any case.

This is the 2nd time of making this cake, I forgot to add the greek yogurt, after going to the shops especially for it!. However it didnt make any difference to the finished masterpeice, there was plenty of chopped apple to keep it very moist!

Very good recipe. As I am trying to stay away from plain flour I have substituted it with Brown Rice Flour and instead of greek yogurt used soya yogurt. It worked perfectly. Very good texture, even,close,smooth and moist.My BF loved it :)))

Absolutely delicious recipe. I used Asda butterscotch toffees to make the topping and it was divine. Just polished it off with my brother and boyfriend. Definitely gonna become a regular.

I made this yesterday....the cake was yummy but couldnt really taste the apple so will maybe add some more as suggested on previous comments! Used pecans instead as i didn't have any walnuts and sprinkled some butterscotch pieces over the top too...that added a nice touch!
