  • 2 eggs
  • 22g g (1 1/2 cups) self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp greek yohurts

For the caramel

  • 50 g (1/4 cup) light muscovado sugar
  • 100 g (1/3 cup) golden syrup
  • 35 g (1/6 cup) butter unsalted, softened
  • 80 ml single cream


Heat your oven to 160C/140C Fan/ 320F and grease and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking paper

    Make the loaf batter

    • Measure the butter, sugar and vanilla extract and add them to a large mixing bowl or freestanding mixer. Beat it all together with the k paddle of your mixer or a hand mixer until it is light and fluffy.
    • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing a little in between each addition.
    • Add the flour, cinnamon, yoghurt and apple pieces to your bowl. Using a spatula mix everything together.

    Bake the apple loaf

    • Pour the batter into your loaf tin and smooth it down.
    • Bake the loaf for 1 hour 20-30 minutes. It's ready when a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
    • Remove it from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes before removing from the tin and leave to cool on a wire rack.

    Make the caramel

    • Add the sugar, syrup and butter to a pan and melt over a low heat. Once the butter has melted completely, leave to bubble for 3 minutes.
    • Remove from the heat and add the cream.
    • Give it a stir and leave to cool until it is at room temperature. Once it has cooled, pour over your apple loaf.
