Cold winter nights call for hot toddies and Irish coffees. My parents recently visited and a made this cake minus the booze, so when I made it a second time I decided to throw a little Irish whiskey in it-it is the season after all!
This cake is a plate of warmness. It’s really easy, festive, and it’s a show stopper when you pile of the caramelized apples. Plus, it’s also really quick and easy; a simple loaf cake with an adult party twist.
Hot toddy cake:
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
3 tablespoons butter softened
3/4 greek yogurt cup greek yogurt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons whiskey
I used my Whiskey frosting from my Chocolate Stout Cake, but just cut back on the ingredients
To caramelize apples: Melt butter in a sillet or frying pan, add about 1/4-1/2 cup of sugar. Stir until sugar has melted (this takes about a minute). Add sliced apples and saute until golden.
In a mixing bowl, soften the butter with your mixer until pale. Add the sugar and beat until combined. Then add the eggs ONE AT A TIME. Then add the vanilla extract and Greek yogurt. Now you’ll sift in the flour and baking powder. Add in the cinnamon and nutmeg. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Once cool, spread on the buttercream and pile on the caramelized apples. Yummmay!
