Whip up this warming, family-friendly dessert in under an hour using apples and golden caramel. Serve hot from the oven with a scoop of ice cream

  • Vegetarian
Nutrition: Per serving


  • 1 tbsp butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs, and 2 egg yolks
  • 50g dark brown soft sugar
  • 200ml whole milk
  • 300ml double cream
  • 375g can caramel, beaten until smooth
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 75g plain flour
  • 3 apples (we used Pink Lady)
  • ice cream, to serve (optional)


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter a 30 x 20 x 4cm baking dish. Put the eggs, extra yolks, sugar, milk, cream, 200g of the caramel, the vanilla and a large pinch of sea salt in a large bowl, then whisk until combined. Stir in the flour until the batter is smooth.

  • STEP 2

    Halve, core and cut the apples into 1cm slices – there’s no need to peel them. Arrange in the baking dish and pour over the batter. Bake for 30-35 mins until the batter is set in the centre, golden and slightly risen.

  • STEP 3

    Drizzle over the remaining caramel, then sprinkle with a little extra sea salt. Leave to rest for 5-10 mins (it will deflate a little). Serve warm with vanilla or peanut butter ice cream, if you like.

Recipe tip

If you prefer a little less sweetness in your dessert, go for a sharper apple variety like Cox or Russet.
