Apple Crumble Traybake

In the autumn as the days turn colder my mind starts to think about the warm and cosy nights in. The perfect treat for me this time of year is a warm and deliciously moist cake full of flavour with all the tastes of the autumn, winter months. Delicious served cold or warmed up with custard, ice cream and some caramel sauce for the ultimate dessert.

It is a deliciously moist cake flavoured with our Sugar and Crumbs Natural Flavoured Icing Sugar and Natural Flavoured Cocoa Powder.
