Apple Walnut Cake with Caramel Frosting Recipe
Preheat oven to 170 C, 150 C fan oven, 325 F, gas 3. Grease and line the bases of the sandwich tins. Sift together the flours, cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
In a large bowl, beat the oil and sugar together with an electric hand whisk until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time and continue to beat for 2 to 3 minutes. Slowly add the dry ingredients until it forms a thick, smooth batter. Fold in the walnuts, apple and brandy.
Divide mixture between tins and bake on the middle shelf for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted in the cake’s centre. Leave in the tins for 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
While the cake is cooking, make the caramel. Dissolve the sugar in a small saucepan over a low heat. Once the caramel has gone deep amber, remove from heat and slowly add the cream. Stand back as you do it – it will bubble like mad. Return to heat and stir for a minute. Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool.
For the frosting, blend the cheese with 225ml (8fl oz) cold caramel and the lemon juice using an electric hand whisk, reserving the rest of the caramel for decoration.
To make the caramel shards, lightly oil a sheet of foil and dot over the walnuts, spaced a little apart. Melt the caster sugar in a pan. Once it has caramelized, pour over the walnuts and allow to set. To assemble the cake: once the cakes are cool, use 1/3 of the icing to sandwich the two layers together. Spread remaining icing over the top and around the sides, using a palette knife. Drizzle the leftover caramel over the iced cake. You can do this with a teaspoon, a piping bag or a clean plastic ketchup bottle.
