- STEP 1
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.
- STEP 2
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.
- STEP 3
Grate the apple using a rotary or box grater and put it in a large bowl.
- STEP 4
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.
- STEP 5
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.
- STEP 6
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.
