Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C and place 12 paper cases into a bun tin.

  2. Mix the milk, eggs, and melted butter together.

  3. In another bowl mix the two flours, the baking powder, and spices together.

  4. Stir the two mixtures together until combined. Stir in the apple until that too is combined. Scoop the mixture into the paper cases and bake for about 25 minutes and the buns are golden and risen. Once cool enough to handle, place on a wire rack to cool completely.

  5. To make the toffee icing, place the butter, cream, and sugar into a heavy-based saucepan over a low heat. Once melted, allow to bubble gently until it has turned a rich caramel colour. Add the salt and pour this over the buns just before serving.
