Ingredients

  • TREX 75g, at room remperature
  • Self-raising flour 125g
  • Salt ¼ tsp
  • Light muscovado sugar 115g
  • Eggs 2
  • Milk 3 tbsp
  • Vanilla extract ½ tsp

For the filling

  • Butter 15g
  • Red eating apple 2, cored and sliced
  • Light muscovado sugar 2 tbsp
  • Toffee sauce 6 tbsp
  • Clotted cream 6 tbsp, or whipped cream
  • Icing sugar for dusting

Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan oven 160°C/Gas Mark 4. Place 12 paper bun cases into a bun tin.

  • Step 2

    Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the sugar, TREX, unbeaten eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Use a wooden spoon to beat the mixture together until smooth and creamy – this will only take 1-2 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Spoon the mixture into the paper cases. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until risen and golden. Cool in the tin for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, melt the butter in a frying pan and add the apple slices, cooking them for 3-4 minutes until softened. Add the sugar and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until caramelised. Leave until cold.

  • Step 5

    When the buns are completely cold, slice the tops from them and cut these in half. Share the toffee sauce between the buns, top with the clotted cream or whipped cream, and then decorate with the apple slices. Replace the tops, and then sift a little icing sugar over the buns.
