Ask your grown-up helper to switch the oven on to 190C/170C fan/ gas 5. Brush a small (500g/ 1 lb) loaf tin with a little oil.
Peel the apple with a potato peeler, then cut it into quarters and cut out the cores. Ask a grown-up for help if you need to.
Grate the apple using a rotary or box grater and put it in a large bowl.
Break the egg into a small bowl. If any pieces of shell fall in, lift them out with a spoon. Add to the apple, then add 3 tbsp oil and the vanilla. Mix well.
Add the flour and sugar and stir together. The mixture is quite stiff so keep going until all of the flour is mixed in. Scrape into prepared tin.
Push 3 toffees into the mix in a row. Ask a grown-up to put the tin in the oven for 30-40 mins or until cooked through. Cool before tipping out and slicing.
