When we were kids, mum always used to tell us about these chocolate apple cakes my dad used to bring her, this bakery luckily was still around and we got to sample them. This is my take on them using my favourite shortcut product of the moment, Nestle TopN fill, no more anxiously biting your finger nails trying to make caramel from scratch..phew


Serves: 6

For the Cake

  • 1000 millilitres crumbled pound cake
  • 369 grams caramel (top n fil)
  • 2 teaspoons brandy

For the Icing

  • 250 millilitres sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 57 grams butter
  • 1 teaspoon green food colouring
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 handful clove

You will need 12 cupcake cases.

  • Break up the mini rolls and place in a food processor. Process until finely chopped, this will take about 10 seconds.
  • Transfer to a mixing bowl, then stir in the brandy and let it sit for about 10 mins.
  • Open up your can of your caramel and warm up about 3/4 of the can in the microwave for about 15 seconds (Make sure you transfer it out of the can and into a microwave safe container).
  • Combine the warmed caramel with cake crumbs and mix well. Divide into 12, then use clean hands to roll the mixture into balls that sort of resemble little apples. Line 12 muffin pan with the white cases, and place each rolled ball into the the cases.
  • To decorate: Place the confectioners' sugar, butter and milk into a small saucepan and cook on a low heat whisking all the time till it is just about to reach boiling point. Take of the heat and add the vanilla essence and the colouring and whisk.
  • Working quickly because the icing will set pour it gently over the the rolled balls of cake crumbs in the cupcake cases.
  • To finish off the apple places a clove in the centre of each as the stem. Refrigerate until set.
  • Tell us what you think
