I always try to have a delicious dessert in the house on a Tuesday night. The Great British Bake Off always makes me crave a baked treat and this Hot Toffee Apple Pudding Bake from M&S looked like it would be the perfect accompaniment. It's a dessert that's been available from M&S before but I've not seen it in my local store until recently.
It's quite a small bake, and only takes 10 minutes in the oven to warm through, but was enough to provide four decent servings. It's made up of a Bramley apple compote layer on the bottom, a moist toffee sponge in the centre, all topped with a rich toffee sauce and extra fudge pieces. The whole thing is extremely sweet, possible a bit too sweet for me, but is still very tasty. All the elements are perfectly executed as you would expect from Marks & Spencer and it does make a satisfying dessert.
In other news, I've just seen that M&S have created a "Peanut Butter Heaven Dessert" with a shortbread base, caramel sauce and peanut butter layer. I know what I'll be getting for my fix next Tuesday then!
Grocery Gems Verdict: M&S Hot Toffee Apple Pudding Bake
RATING: 7.5 out of 10.
Buy them again?: I would recommend it.
