This delicious, moist, apple-packed cake is one of the best Irish desserts and it's not green! For best results, use crisp, tart apples like Granny Smith or Honey Crisp. Use a combination of different apples for varying taste and textures.
3 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
6 oz. butter, cold, diced
3/4 cup sugar4 large apples, peeled, cored & diced
3/4 cup whole milk
4 tbsp. sugar for sprinkling on top of batter
HOW YOU'LL MAKE IT
Preheat oven to 375°.
Grease and flour a 9 inch springform pan.
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Mix in sugar then toss in diced apples and combine.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together. Add to the apple/flour mixture until just combined being careful not to over mix. Batter will be thick and dough-like.
Spoon batter into prepared pan and flatten top with a spatula. Sprinkle sugar over top of batter. Bake 50 - 55 minutes. Test the center for doneness using a toothpick or knife. Be sure it comes out clean. The top should be a nice, golden brown.
Cool completely before removing from pan.
Serve with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream or both. Also great with a cup of coffee, latte or tea!
