Preparation time:

Oven temperature: 170 C / Gas mark 3
1 x 20cm/8" round cake


Toffee Apple Sauce

40g/1 1/2 oz Butter
75g/3oz Demerara sugar
4 Dessert apples (Granny Smiths are ideal, peeled, cored and sliced)


150ml/ 1/4 pint Medium or sweet cider
110g/4oz Butter (room temperature)
110g/4oz Molasses sugar
250g/9oz Glutafin Select Gluten Free Multi-purpose White Mix (or for a gluten-free wheat-free option use 225g/8oz Glutafin Gluten Free Wheat Free Multi-purpose White Mix)
1 1/2 x 5ml tsp Gluten free baking powder
1/2 x 5ml tsp Ground cinnamon
2 Medium eggs (lightly whisked)


1.Prepare caramel. Melt butter and stir in sugar. Pour into a greased and lined, solid-based, round cake tin. Cover caramel with the sliced apple and set aside.
2.Prepare sponge. Simmer cider until reduced by half. Remove from heat and stir in the butter and sugar until melted.
3.Place remaining sponge ingredients into a medium size bowl. Beat in the cider mixture with a wooden
spoon to make a stiff batter consistency. Spoon onto prepared apple.
4.Oven bake until the sponge is firm to the touch. Leave to cool slightly for 15 minutes before turning out onto a serving plate apple side up.
5.Serve warm as a dessert with a spoonful of crème fraîche or custard, or serve cold.

You can use a 23cm/9" square foil tray lined with baking parchment to bake the sponge. The recipe also works well with Glutafin Multi-purpose Fibre Mix. Use 250g/9oz mix and the remaining ingredients.

To freeze:
Leave cake in baking container. Place in a large freezer bag and seal. Defrost for 2 hours and gently warm in the oven before serving. Alternatively, freeze individual slices in small freezer containers.
