Easy peasy recipe for a delicious snack cake, to be munched on over the week, or as a little treat to get you through the morning.

It can be served warm with ice cream too and if you double up on the caramel sauce you can add a little extra on serving.

feel free omit the salt in the caramel and adjust the spices to suit, as ever most of my recipes are very easily adaptable.
