1. Toffee apple bread and butter pudding
One of the ultimate comfort food recipes, bread and butter pudding is perfect for November nights. However, this ingenious recipe turns our much-loved winter warmer into a Bonfire Night classic.

2. Toffee apple cheesecake
If it’s a cold dessert you’re after, look no further than this toffee apple cheesecake. Sweet caramelised apples sandwiched between a vanilla cream cheese filling and a buttery ginger base, this dessert is baked then chilled overnight. Top with more caramelised apple slices before serving and decorate with cinnamon sticks for a fantastic Bonfire Night centrepiece dessert.
3. Toffee apple crumble
Winter wouldn’t be winter without whipping up a hearty crumble. With apple already a popular filling for this British pud, adding toffee sauce and a hint of ginger into the classic recipe will make it perfect for Bonfire Night. Serve your toffee apple crumble with a good helping of vanilla custard for a traditionally British bake.
