Toasted apple cake and butterscotch sauce

The apple sauce makes this cake really dense and moist, which is the perfect contrast to the crispy outsides once we toast it. Try it before you think we've gone mad, toasted cake is amazing...especially with our homemade butterscotch sauce and a dollop of ice cream! :)
