Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup butter softened
  • 2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup peeled diced apple (approximately 1 large apple)
  • 1/2 cup toffee bitsFrosting
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup half and half
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cup powdered sugar sifted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray bottom and sides of a 9x13 inch casserole dish or cake pan with non-stick spray. I, then, like to line it with heavy duty aluminum foil allowing foil to extend over edges.
  • In a bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and brown sugar at medium until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Scrape sides of bowl.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until well combined.
  • Add vanilla and beat until combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients and beat at low speed until just combined, about 30 seconds. Scrape sides of bowl as needed.
  • Fold in apple and toffee.
  • Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until set in the center. Test by inserting a wooden pick in center. Cake is done when pick comes out clean.
  • Place on a wire rack to cool.
  • Prepare frosting while cake cools.
  • Frosting- melt butter in a small pan over low heat. Whisk constantly until it turns a light amber color. Be careful not to burn. Stir in brown sugar and half and half. Bring to a light boil then remove from heat. Keep whisking until sugar dissolves and mixture is smooth. Whisk in powdered sugar and stir until smooth. Add more half and half one tsp at a time if necessary to keep mixture smooth, creamy and spreadable.
  • Pour over cake and spread evenly.
  • Enjoy!
