Lifestyle - Baking Toffee Apple Ginger loaf

Toffee apple ginger loaf cake

Hey lovelies,
I haven't had chance to bake in a while, but as I'm currently on holiday I thought I would get back in the Kitchen and bake something seasonal and comforting now the days are becoming distinctly more Autumnal, and what could be more Autumnal then Gingerbread and toffee apple combined in one delicious and super easy to prepare loaf cake.
This cake is lovely sliced with a cuppa mid afternoon or bloody delicious served as pudding with lashings of custard on a chilly evening, this recipe is a definite winner with my family.

So here's what you will need.........

  • 100g softened butter
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 125g golden syrup
  • 50g treacle
  • 175g SR flour
  • 3tsp ground ginger
  • 1tsp cinnamon 
  • 1tbsp milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 eating apples, I cut into small dice, 1 sliced 
  • Some caramel or toffee sauce ( I used Tesco finest caramel sauce)  


  1. Preheat oven to 170c/325f/gas mark3, grease and line with parchment paper a loaf tin.
  2. Cream together butter, sugar, golden syrup and treacle until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and spices.
  3. Beat the eggs into the butter mixture one at a time a long with a tablespoon of flour, then add in the rest of the flour and the milk and stir till combined, finally fold in the chopped apple.
  4. Scrape the mixture into the prepared tin, level off the top and arrange the apple slices, bake for between 1 hour and 1 hour 30 mins or until a skewer comes out clean. After 40 minutes cover the top with foil to stop it going to dark.
  5. Leave to cool in the tin for about 30 mins then transfer to a wire rack.
  6. Drizzle with caramel/toffee sauce, I warmed mine in the microwave for 20 seconds first so it drizzled easier.

I would 100% recommend trying this loaf cake, you won't regret it I promise you.
